Food Ecologies is a pilot residency exchange programme, launched last year, between Scotland and Sweden. We are pleased to share details of a call for applications to the residency in 2024 . This is aimed at artistic practitioners, based in Sweden, working around the politics and economics of food, with a focus on design and the development and implementation of just, circular and sustainable practises.

Food Ecologies was originally initiated and organised collaboratively by Cove Park, IASPIS – International Programme for Visual & Applied Arts and Linnaeus University’s Design + Change departnent in 2022, co-founded by IASPIS and the British Council through the Circular Cultures programme. Our first Food Ecologies resident in 2023 was Una Hallgrímsdóttir and we look forward to welcoming a second resident from Sweden in January next year.

Further information and details of how to apply for Sweden-based applicants is available here and the deadline for applications is 6 November 2023.
