Proposals are welcome from creative practitioners, individuals or small groups of collaborating artists, who are working in disciplines including architecture, fine art, sound art, creative writing, film-making and object-making. Whilst Outlandia is off-grid, this need not exclude practitioners working with digital technologies. The host is looking for experimental, radical approaches to a challenging natural and working environment. They are particularly interested in proposals that engage with the tensions around nature, industry, tourism and heritage.
Outlandia is an off-grid treehouse artist studio and fieldstation in Glen Nevis, Lochaber, Scotland. A flexible meeting space in the forest for creative collaboration and research. Imagined by London Fieldworks and designed by Malcolm Fraser Architects, Outlandia is inspired by childhood dens, wildlife hides and bothies, by forest outlaws and Japanese poetry platforms. It is located in a copse of Norwegian Spruce and Larch on Forestry Commission land, at the foot of Ben Nevis in the Scottish Highlands, three miles from the town of Fort William. Outlandia is an artist-led project built to foster links between creativity and the environment.
Accommodation is not provided and must be arranged by artists in residence in nearby Fort William. Host will provide an accommodation list for applicants.
