Themes of Life
CAS is extremely pleased to be able to announce our next residency, in partnership with Unlimited.
CAS and Unlimited wish to appoint an artist in residence for 8-12 weeks, between Feb and April 2020. The artist will be based at the CAS project space, Chapel Arts Studios where there will be personal studio space and access to a wide variety of resources, equipment and support.
Working in partnership with the Beautiful Burial Ground project, Unlimited and CAS (Chapel Arts Studio), Themes of Life is a two month artist’s residency for a disabled artist, based in Chapel Arts Studio at the centre of Andover Cemetery. Throughout the residency the artist will involve the general public in response to the environment, the ecology and the living history, all of which converge in this unique space.
We are open to a wide range of interpretive responses to ‘Themes of Life’, biological life (of the body or the plant world), social life, notions of time and growth. The work could be digital, sound, performance, temporary – we are open to all proposals.
Who can apply?
With a clear thematic focus to the project around ‘Themes of Life’, we are seeking expressions of interest from a disabled artist based in Arts Council areas of the South West or Midlands. This opportunity is only for artists based in these regions, addressing a lower volume of awards within Unlimited for disabled artists based in these areas.
The applicant will have a visual arts or cross artform focus.
Artist fee £8000
Materials/Collaborators budget £1500
Travel, accommodation and access costs will be covered on top of the above, as relevant, up to a ceiling of £3000
