DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 15 JANUARY 2015
CALL FOR FULLY-FUNDED RESIDENCIES FOR ARTISTS, CRAFTSPEOPLE, MAKERS AND DESIGNERS TO WORK WITH DIGITAL FABRICATION TOOLS & PROCESSES
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS – AIMS & OBJECTIVES: As the second stage in our EU funded ’Made@EU’ Creative Europe project, Plymouth College of Art are offering between 3 and 5 subsidized residencies to a value of between £1000 and £4000 each for creative professionals to develop projects that explore the integration of 3-D digital fabrication systems into their processes of design and production, to realize a new outcome. While we envisage the projects as operating within the £1-4K range, we will consider applications whose budgets might go a little beyond the £4K ceiling in order to support a particularly outstanding project.
The residency call is geared to highly motivated creatives who will develop projects that exhibit innovative formal, technical, aesthetic, social, or economic achievements, within their form(s) of practice.
In return Plymouth College of Art will, depending on project requirements, offer access and support to an array of appropriate traditional creative processes, plus a suite of computer-controlled tools. We envisage the residencies lasting from anything from 3 weeks continuous to, for example, 1 week per month for 3 months. The residencies can be Part Time or Full Time, with flexible schedules to be agreed with applicants, according to the project proposed.
Selected candidates will also have opportunities to show their completed project work in a range of national and international exhibition and dissemination events that will take place from the summer of 2016 on.
