Artist's Residencies

Watershed Residencies Open Call


Deadline: 18 September 2017 at 10:00

We are delighted to announce an open call for our 2017 Residencies. We have two programmes on offer:

Artist in Residence
Our Artist in Residence call is an invitation to research and make work at the intersection of art and technology. It is open to all artists of any discipline, who have been practising for two or more years. We have one residency available, which comes with a structured programme, work space at Pervasive Media Studio, a network of peers, plus financial, technical and critical support. The residency will take place in autumn / winter and we’re flexible about how you structure your time. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop work, be part of an inspirational network, share ideas and progress your thinking.
Application Deadline: Mon 24 July, 10:00

New Talent Residencies
We have three New Talent Residencies available and are looking for ambitious practitioners with ideas for creative technology projects. You could be just starting out, changing career direction, or looking to return from a career break. With space to work within the Pervasive Media Studio, a community of peers, a project bursary, and support to make, test and discuss your work, we can help you get your idea off the ground.
Application Deadline: Mon 18 September, 10:00

Each residency will be based at Watershed’s Pervasive Media Studio. You will become part of our community of over 150 artists, creative companies, engineers, academics, scientists, technologists and tinkerers, who work on new and emerging ideas. Ideas span gaming, projections, location-based media, city intervention, connected objects, tangible interfaces, space exploration and new forms of performance. Some are cultural, some are commercial. Run in partnership with the University of the West of England and the University of Bristol, the Studio has a great workspace, an open ethos and a can-do attitude.
