Artist's Residencies

Lightwaves International Artist Residencies

Street Level Photoworks

Deadline: 02 June 2017 at 17:00

Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow in collaboration with VU Photography Centre, Quebec are delighted to launch a call for submission from artists working with photography, for International Residencies one of which takes place in October 2017 and one in April 2018.

We are looking for 2 dynamic artists from Scotland to participate in this exciting opportunity that is part funded by British Council’s office in Canada and Quebec Government.

The residency will involve creative dialogue with a partnered Quebecois artist prior to the residency stay in Quebec, with opportunities for further dialogue during the reciprocal stay in Scotland by the Quebecois artist. Some of this dialogue will be captured on a project blog.

The opportunity includes a funded one-month stay in Quebec at the arts cooperative Meduse, access to VU’s photographic facility, with the output of an exhibition bringing the work of the 4 artists together in a partner venue in 2018/19. The residency will involve an online creative exchange between the selected artists in Scotland and those in Quebec around themes of heritage and migration.

Flight, accommodation, per diems, exhibition production support and an artists fee of £1000 is available.
