VARC - 12 Months Residencies

VARC Residency--- Northumberland, UK

Artists' Residencies in the Community 2014 and 2015- Application fee: none

VARC' is inviting visual artists to apply for twelve-month residencies at Highgreen in rural Northumberland. The Trust is hoping to appoint two artists from applications submitted; one artist to hold the residency starting 2014 and another artist to hold the residency starting October 2015.

Aims VARC's primary aims are to: Promote interest, awareness and understanding of visual arts in a rural community through engagement with an artist . Develop visual arts projects in rural communities . Offer a unique opportunity to an artist wishing to develop his or her practice by working and living in a remote rural community.
The Residency VARC is looking for:  artists who feel that 12 months spent living in an isolated rural location will significantly benefit their practice. Although the Trust feels that artists who might most benefit are those who have lived in an urban or city environment, artists will be considered regardless of their current location as long as they can explain how this would benefit their practice. The length of the residency is one year, as this would allow the artist to experience the full cycle of seasons as well as the time for the rural community and environment to have an impact on the work. However in exceptional circumstances six-month residencies are not ruled out. The aim is to give the artist a unique opportunity to concentrate on his/her practice in a remote setting, away from the constraints of city life. It is hoped that this experience will have a lasting effect on the artist
