We are delighted to announce the artists selected for the Landscapes & Horizons residency, developed collaboratively by Cove Park, Cross Borders, and Luminate, Scotland’s creative ageing organisation.

Landscapes & Horizons is a new fully funded group residency for Scotland-based artists and cultural practitioners, aged over 40, from refugee and other migrant backgrounds. The residency will take place in Cove Park, an international artists residency centre located on an outstanding rural site on Scotland’s west coast.

This Spring, the chosen artists will partake in a week of creative activity, including workshops and events facilitated by activist and artistic director of Bijli Productions, Mariem Omari, director, writer and performer Nick Bone, and environmentalist Michaela Blair. They will also take time to rest, reflect, and pursue their own interests.

We are thrilled to have awarded the residency to six artists and cultural workers, creating and working in diverse fields: Haleh Jamali, Oleksandra Novatska, Iman Tajik,  Daria Oskolkova, Paria Goodarzi, and Ako Zada.
