Artist Research Residency Opportunity

Project Ability offers a programme of five calendar month Research Residencies; February – June 2016. This opportunity is open to contemporary visual artists working in all media.

Successful artists will have access to our accessible studio and fantastic workshop facilities Monday to Friday, 9 – 5pm for a calendar month; ceramic studio, glass studio, print studio, wood shop and digital studio and the opportunity to work alongside artists who attend Project Ability’s studio programme for people with learning disabilities, people with lived experience of mental ill health and children and young people with disabilities while gaining knowledge of workshop delivery from our team of highly experienced tutors. This is a voluntary position and a reasonable amount of material can be used from our stock (upon agreement).

The residency is an opportunity to cultivate new ideas through research and production and to access and explore an inclusive arts environment.

On conclusion of the residency each artist will be invited to present their work in a public lecture and there is potential at a later date of working with our exhibitions coordinator to exhibit work and work in progress in our gallery in Trongate 103. On completion of the residency you are invited to submit a workshop proposal to be delivered over 10 hours at a fee of £250 and subject to approval by the Artistic Director. Mentoring support may be given to help develop your workshop plan.
