We are delighted to be one of 21 organisations taking part in RSA Residencies for Scotland! 2022 and to share news of the open call for applications to this programme.
The RSA Residencies for Scotland is an artist-led scheme which provides valuable research and residency opportunities for artists. It forges important networks with centres of artistic excellence across Scotland, ranging from traditional residency venues to specialised production facilities.
Open to visual artists at all stages of their careers, the emphasis is on enabling a period of research, development and production, as well as on the acquisition and exchange of new skills and experiences. Artists can apply for funds of up to £5,000 and are responsible for managing their own residency, in discussion with the partner venue/s.
The Royal Scottish Academy of Art & Architecture is an independently funded institution whose purpose is to promote and support the visual arts in Scotland. The programme is administered and funded by the RSA, with kind support from the RSA Friends and The Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Charitable Trust. Launched in 2009, the project is now offered on a biennial basis.
Further information is available here, and the deadline for applications (via the RSA’s own website) is Sunday 23 January 2022 (midnight).
