Climate Art and Bridgepoint Rye, in collaboration with Sussex Wildlife Trust, are delighted to announce a call for applications from artists, creative practitioners, and environmental researchers to work on a site-responsive project during a three-month residency at Bridgepoint Creative Centre in Rye, East Sussex. Participants are invited to explore the broad themes of transience, ephemerality and perishability. Each applicant should clearly indicate how, during the three months of the programme, they will engage with the local community and connect with the ecological landscape of Rye.
The opportunity is open to 3 UK-based practitioners, with one space reserved for a Sussex-based participant. The residents will be provided with free accommodation and studio space for the duration of the residency. Each participant will receive a monthly stipend of £500 and a production budget of £2,000.
The residency will take place in January – March 2021. The deadline for applications is 8 November 2020 at 23:59.
The programme – A Vanished Sea (Without a Trace) – has been generously supported by Bridgepoint Rye and the Kowitz Family Foundation.
Deadline 8 November 2020
