CCA/AC Projects Music Residency 2017/18

December 2, 2016 in All Opportunities, Composers by mwhiteside

AC Projects is really pleased to be able to announce the continuation of its residency series in collaboration with the CCA at CCA Creative Lab. This will be the 4th residency in this series and continues AC Projects commitment to supporting artists in their development.

Through this series it has become apparent that there is an uncertainty about what a residency of this sort is. On one level it is about simply offering the space and support for an artist to contemplate what they want to do with their creative practice or how they examine how to articulate their ideas.

AC Projects offers support for artists/musicians/composers to challenge themselves and find new ways to approach creativity. We are looking for submissions that present ideas that are not fully formed. The residency is not about rehearsing an already developed idea but is about exploring notions of what music can be.

Artists working in or exploring music, sound, composition, live art, contemporary performance, movement, new theatre, film, video, time-based media and interdisciplinary projects with an experimental music focus are invited to submit proposals to be considered for a CCA Creative Lab residency.

Creative Lab objectives:
• An opportunity for emerging and established artists, composers or musicians to have time to develop new ideas, rather than focusing on the final outcome
• To give artists an opportunity to show their investigations to the public and peers for feedback
• To provide networking opportunities with other users of the building, including artists, cultural tenants and other CCA contacts

General information:
The Creative Lab space at the CCA is a light and versatile room approximately 7 m x 11.70m. Technical assistance for sound and lighting can also be requested. Applicants should make it clear in the submissions if their Creative Lab would depend on technical or other provision. CCA and AC Projects has £1000 allocated for each 4-week Creative Lab, which should cover any production or technical costs for in-progress showings etc.

1x 4 week fixed slot – 23 Oct – 17 Nov 2017. Unfortunately these dates are fixed in line with availability and other projects.
