Description

We are seeking expressions of interest from a contemporary artist or artists for a 12 month artist residency as part of the Art and Therapeutic Design (ATD) programme for the new Royal Hospital for Sick Children (RHSC) and Department of Clinical Neuroscience (DCN) hospital in Little France, Edinburgh.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a contemporary artist (or artists) to research, develop and deliver a residency project which could include an exhibition, workshop, digital production, performance, event or publication. The focus for the activities or interventions should be on building meaningful collaborative practice with community projects in the geographical vicinity of the Little France Campus with particular attention to those representing minority or hard to reach groups.

We are looking for an artist (or artists) with a track record of innovative socially engaged practice who can demonstrate confidence, motivation, vision and creative aptitude for developing arts within healthcare settings and with minority or disadvantaged communities. There will be scope for the selected artist to pursue personal interests in the choice of specific communities or themes they explore.

Budget

A total sum of £38,000 ex VAT has been allocated inclusive of all fees and expenses for this residency. This is broken down as artist residency fees of £28,000 (140 days @ £200) plus a materials budget of £10,000 to cover production or event delivery costs.

As part of the ATD 19.1 residency programme there will also be access, via discussion and approval, to a shared budget for mentoring, discussions and dissemination/publication.

Submission Deadline

Submissions should be sent in electronic form to Lucy Harwood by 5pm on Wednesday 9th November 2016. Please see project briefs for full submission requirements.
