Fellowships – DCN

November 6, 2016 in All Opportunities, Composers, Opportunity, Other Opportunity, Performers by mwhiteside

Deadline: 09 November 2016 at 17:00

Description

We are seeking expressions of interest from creative practitioners for the Art and Therapeutic Design (ATD) programme for the new Department of Clinical Neuroscience (DCN) hospital in Little France, Edinburgh. The opportunities are:

– Language & Cognition Fellowship
– Music Fellowship
– Design Fellowship

The fellowships are a fantastic opportunity to promote and showcase the working activity and research interests currently found within the DCN through a programme of dynamic art/science commissions. Innovation and design development using current research practices is key to each fellowship within the programme. This project seeks to build relationships between artists, staff and external research partners to demonstrate best practice and contribute to on-going dialogue with respect to the benefits of creative practice in clinical environments.

The three DCN fellowships are a unique opportunity designed to build relationships and creative capacity between the hospital and wider city communities over a 12 month period. It is anticipated that much of the development work will take place off site however we expect both temporary and permanent outcomes to find a place both within the existing DCN at Western General and/or the new building at Little France.

Budget

Each fellowship is valued at £40,000 ex VAT including all materials and expenses. This is broken down into fellowship fees and a materials budget to cover production or event delivery costs. This is based on a fee allocation of £30,000 (150 days @ £200 per day) and £10,000 for support, materials and expenses.

As part of the project there will also be access, via discussion and approval, to a shared budget for mentoring, discussions, and for 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.
