Landscapes and Horizons artist residency
Posted by CHARTS
‘Landscapes & Horizons’ is a new fully funded group residency for five Scotland-based artists and cultural practitioners, open to people aged over 40, from refugee and other migrant backgrounds, organised by Luminate in partnership with Cove Park and the Scottish Refugee Council.
It is an opportunity for artists and cultural practitioners aged over 40 to find space, time, care and reflection for their creative development. We are particularly keen to support applicants who have not accessed this kind of opportunity before, and who have faced barriers due to their age, care commitments and/ or asylum or immigration status/ journey.
The residency provides a week of creative activity, workshops, and events, offering time for each resident to pursue their own interests and to take part in group projects. The residency will take place at Cove Park on Argyll’s Rosneath Peninsula.
Luminate is especially exciting to be working In partnership with Cove Park and the Scottish Refugee Council to bring about this residency, which is also supported with funding from Creative Scotland, The Bridge Awards and Comic Relief.
