Located Residencies support the development of new performance ideas in particular regions of Wales, while simultaneously enabling creative engagement with communities or locations across the country. Through these residencies artists will experiment, take risks and explore their practice within a specific context. These residencies will be the starting points for future projects and productions that have a deep and meaningful connection with notions of ‘people’ and ‘place’.
This is an opportunity for you to conceive and shape your own residency where you can push your artistic practice. In your submission, we will be looking for examples of how you think this residency will push your artistic boundaries and/or have the potential to create change (for you, your practice, or anyone else you may be working with).
We are particularly interested in hearing from artists who want to explore ideas in North East Wales and West Wales. We particularly welcome submissions from artists who come from underrepresented groups (specifically artists from culturally diverse backgrounds, or artists with additional needs).
We expect that most residencies will last for around a week and that there will be an important moment to share ideas/process with a local audience. We will expect to work with the selected artists to support the design of their residency and however they chose to share their results with a wider group of people.
