The C2D2 Artist in Residence Scheme is intended to support the creation of new artistic work inspired by an aspect of research into biomedicine and/or human health and wellbeing currently being conducted at the University of York. The Scheme is intended to establish a powerful creative collaboration between artist and researcher that will both generate persuasive, innovative and visceral art and inspire further interdisciplinary research and practice to the benefit of artist and researcher alike.

Applications to the C2D2 Artist in Residence Scheme are welcomed from all professional artists and creative practitioners. The term ‘artist’ is understood in the broadest sense to include musicians/composers as well as visual artists, creative writers, poets and any other producers of original and experimental creative work.

The artist will be expected to closely engage with the work of at least one researcher at the University of York who is active in the particular health area chosen; whether in the sciences, social sciences or humanities.

The artist will be engaged on a self-employed basis and there is flexibility as to the hours worked. The project may be pursued intensively over a couple of weeks or part-time over a longer period of up to twelve months.

Up to £15,000 in funding may be claimed in project costs and as a contribution to living expenses.

The appointee will be required to produce at least one original piece of work by the end of the project.

The appointee will be expected to be embedded at the University for at least some of the residency.
