Are you an artist who loves working with communities? Do you have a passion for the outdoors? Are you based in or have strong connections to the South Pennines area? If so this opportunity could be perfect for you.
Beam has recently been appointed by Pennine Prospects to develop an ambitious programme of up to x6 socially engaged artist residencies to be delivered in up to 12 locations across the South Pennines area that stretches from Horwich up to Ilkley, across to Bradford and down to Oldham.
We’re seeking artists to engage communities who live, work and enjoy the South Pennines area using their arts practice to bring participants closer to nature, to have a voice about how their park is run and of course to have fun through unique experiences and learning new skills.
The residencies will be delivered in diverse, socially and economically disadvantaged communities in and around the South Pennines. Our aim is to include and feature the voice and opinions of the communities and artwork produced in a collaborative film to be premiered in September 2021 to help promote the cultural value of the area.
Artists should have experience of successfully engaging with communities and may be working in a range of disciplines for example: visual arts, photography, sound, print, installation, craft, multi media etc.
Fee: £3,000 per residency (up to x6 residencies in total)
Dates: May – September 2021
Deadline for applications: Midday, Friday 14th May 2021
