In this shifting world, communities return to the land, seek refuge in the environment and sustenance in nature, and Art Gene takes up residence on our outside project space, Allotment Soup.
Artists are invited to Barrow-in-Furness for an intensive, collaborative 2 week residency to develop an ‘exhibition in the outdoors’, engaging with locals, creating interventions, provocations, and working with and around challenging issues for these extreme times.
Eligibility: Artists working in any medium are invited to apply. You will have shared use of the outdoor space, sheltered workshop poly tunnels and tools whilst on site, as well as access to Art Gene’s studios and workshops. We encourage applications from artists identifying as Disabled, BAME & LGBTQ+.
What you get: Total fee £2,400 for 12 days in residence. Local accommodation provided between 1 – 14th November 2021.
Deadline 20 September 2021
