At the end of 2015, we advertised for a new opportunity for Glasgow-based artists: our ReSearch Residency programme, and are now delighted to announce that we have picked seven talented artists for the first half of 2016.
Artists in residence 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.
The residency is an opportunity to cultivate new ideas through research and production and to access and explore an inclusive arts environment.
The first artist in residence, Joanna Peace, started on February 1st. Each artist will document their work and their experience in our studios via a newly launched instagram account: @PA_Research_Residency.
The following artists taking part in the residency programme will be:
Jen Bradley – March
David Roeder – April
Florence Dwyer – May
Scott Lang – May
Shireen Taylor – June
Ailsa Sutcliffe – July
We very much look forward to seeing what these residencies will produce! We will be advertising for the next series of residencies in the summer.
