Research and Residency Opportunity

Accidental Mix - Field-work 1: the participatory maker

This 6-month Artist research and residency opportunity forms part of an innovative collaboration between Queens Cross Housing Association (QCHA) and the Department of Sculpture and Environmental Art (SEA) at The Glasgow School of Art. Accidental Mix is envisaged as an ongoing series of artist opportunities that will explore how a diversity of creative methods might support means of engagement with communities in the development of art in a range of public, urban spaces.

Field-work 1: the participatory maker, is the first in that series and aims to support the artist to explore and test the role of making as a means of communication and engagement with some of the diverse communities that make up QCHA.  Supported by Creative Scotland, Public Art Research and Development investment funding, this 6 month residency will enable an artist-maker to form a key part of the Accidental Mix project team and offers an exciting opportunity to develop working methods through materials and process that test ideas of making as a means of participation in relation to Public Art. The artists’ research in this area will contribute to and support the development of a strategy for public art within QCHA.

A fee of £9,000 will be paid to cover the artist’s input over 6 months between the periods January 2013 to June 2013, with time input to be determined by the artist in negotiation with the project’s partners. Up to £5,000 for materials and community workshops is also available; the allocation will be agreed with the artist and the project team however will include artist’s materials and public presentation of their research and documentation, which is likely to be held in the Accidental Mix base in Queens Cross, Glasgow.

This residency is offered on a self-employed basis.

Applications are due by 9 November 2012 and interviews will be held in Glasgow on Friday 23 November 2012

As part of a new initiative to give back to the students of the Glasgow School of Art, the Artstore at the Artschool is pleased to  announce a new range of opportunities to coincide with the end of each term for students at the Glasgow School of Art.

This term, the Artstore will provide ambitious student projects funding and a space to exhibit outside the Glasgow School of Art. Applications are accepted only from registered students at the Glasgow School of Art. Applications for group exhibitions are given priority. Applications for solo exhibitions are generally not accepted but will be taken into consideration. Applications are accepted from any discipline (undergraduate and postgraduate) and we do not set parameters limit on material or method. However, applications with a focus on contemporary art practice are given priority.

Received Applications are selected by a panel of artists and creative practitioners based on the following criteria: the quality of individual work, the quality of the exhibition proposal, and the creative development it enables. The Artstore covers the cost of the gallery, installation equipment, publicity, invigilation, preview night amenities, and provides a small subsidy towards exhibitors’ costs. It is the responsibility of the selected artists to organise, install, and de-install their exhibition, all in line with the venue’s health and safety guidelines.
