VARC is inviting submissions for 5 funded artist in residence positions in 2020-2021. Please check their website for more details.
VARC’s primary aims are to:
With each residency VARC aims to achieve a balance between the opportunity to the artist to develop and exhibit new work and the opportunity to local people to benefit from the programme of engagement with the artist. Each resident artist develops a body of work for exhibition at the end of the residency and engages with individuals and groups from the area and further afield through workshops, open studio days, artists' talks and other events. VARC looks for artists who feel that twelve months spent living in an isolated rural location will significantly benefit their practice and who enjoy contact with people and want to be part of a community.
Accommodation is in a two-bedroomed flat located in a renovated stable block. Access is via a flight of stairs.
There is a 498 sq ft studio for the sole use of the artist. The studio is equipped with basic tools and furniture.
