Skimstone Arts is offering artist residencies for national and international performers, musicians, audio-visual artists or theatre companies.
The celebration of something is praise and appreciation which is given to it.
The action of celebrating an important day or event: a joyful occasion for special festivities to mark some happy event the public performance of a sacrament or solemn ceremony with all appropriate ritual
Help Skimstone Arts celebrate our 10 year anniversary birthday party! This will be a celebration of our work with diverse artists and communities past, present and future.
We are commissioning two individual artists and/or companies who will work with us to create, manage and produce a piece of artwork (performance/ visual/sound) that embraces the diverse society that we still value, despite the current political landscape.
The two paid residencies will include the use of studio and gallery space to create new performances or artwork. Each artist/company will have 10 days of activity, including a ‘meet the artists day’ for a day of workshops or talks and two days of performances at B & D gallery space as major part of our birthday celebration week to invited audiences and funders.
Artistic mentoring and support will be available during the residency. You will also have an opportunity to work with our Young Artist Collective and/or their band Reality Boots.
This is open to any artist/company at any stage of their career and is particularly aimed at those who should be equally represented in today’s global and diverse society.
We want this residency with us to:
• support journeys of risk-taking and innovation
• create new collaborations of creative inspiration
• produce work that is thoughtful, visionary, intelligent, playful and of excellent quality
• discover what the North East has to offer as an inclusive artistic, diverse and socially engaging community
The closing date for applications is Friday 30 March 2018.
