Our video studio and electronics lab are open for studio residencies of 2-4 weeks from 13 September through 2021. If you are working on an art project involving moving image or electronics, you are welcome to apply for a residency.
The open call is specifically for the video studio and electronics lab, as the sound studio is fully booked for now.
To apply, send an application to firstname.lastname@example.org, to include:
– short project description (300 words)
– preferred studio/space (video studio and/or electronics lab)
– preferred dates
The application deadline is 27 August 2021.
Residencies are open to professional artists and we prioritise projects that are experimental in their use of technology, or interrogate its relationship to art and society. We offer our facilities and equipment, and expect artists to work independently. However, Studio Residents are also able to apply for advice sessions with our in-house experts to help with specific project needs.
Please note that we offer our production facilities only, and do not cover travel, accommodation or project costs.
