Following on from Scottish Sculpture Workshop’s 2017 Artist- led Activity Exchange Programme, the Lumsden Residency is a part-funded residency award which provides artists with a month-long residency that builds towards participatory activity taking place during SSW’s Lumsden Weekender in November 2018. The Lumsden Weekender is a new annual gathering of artists and local communities, who come together over the Bonfire Night weekend to experience each selected artists participatory practice alongside discussion and food around the fire. This residency may result in new artworks, performances, group activities, parties and workshops and any other wider events and activities over the weekend event.
There are three Lumsden Residencies available, one place for each Summer Residency month in 2018: May, June, and August. The selected artists will initially undertake individual residencies during one of these months, focusing on self directed practice, and then return in November to take part in the Lumsden Weekender programme.
During the residency period artists will have time to spend on the development of their work – whether this is for production, research or experimentation. Artists will receive a series of curatorial sessions with the Programme Manager, who will support them in developing and producing their activity. The residency period also allows for workshop time with support from SSWtechnical staff to develop new skills determined by the artist’s own interests and practice. Artists will have full access to the workshops and up to two sessions a week dedicated technical assistance.
Application Deadline: 9am Monday 12 February 2018
