Corwen Artist Residency Opportunity

Deadline: June 26, 2013

Corwen Artist Residency Opportunity

Bursary: £8,000 for 4 months starting 15th July 2013
Deadline for applications:
26th June 2013
10th July 2013

This is a collaborative project between the Arts Council of Wales, Partneriaeth Corwen Partnership, Denbighshire County Council and Addo.

Applications are invited from artists with a collaborative/participative approach to undertake a residency in Corwen that will draw out and address issues of physical and environmental connectivity across the town, highlighted by the proposal to extend the heritage Llangollen Railway from Carrog.

The proposed new railway platform lies to the east of the town, some distance from the town centre across a series of fields. There is potential to bring these under-utilized green spaces, which currently act as a barrier, to the fore via an artist in residency, which would consider the links between local residents and users, the natural environment and the proposed influx of tourists that the railway development is intended to generate. The residency aims to mark this field area as a creative space, bringing it into use and linking the platform and the town.

The artist will be someone interested in the environment, architecture or design with previous experience of working with others to develop ideas. An ethos of collaborative practice and engagement is uppermost.

For queries and further information, please contact: Tracy Simpson, Addo, 07890 203218, [email protected]com.
