Opportunity: Moray Way artist in residence

31st May 2021

As part of Arts in Moray (AIM), the Moray Way Association will be hosting a 12-month residency.

The Moray Way Association is thrilled to be part of Arts in Moray (AIM), which recently received Creative Scotland’s Culture Collective funding. The national programme aims to establish a network of creative practitioners, organisations and communities, working together to create a positive difference locally and nationally in response to COVID-19.

The AIM collective, led by Dance North Scotland, includes Moray Arts Development Engagement (M:ADE), Wildbird and the Moray Way Association, and is working together as part of the Culture Café network. The group will employ a new and radical approach to engaging a network of creative practitioners and communities within Moray through a residency programme that will support at least eight artist residencies.

The Moray Way Association will be hosting a 12-month residency based on the Moray Way, a 100-mile circular route that runs throughout Moray’s diverse landscape. The residency will ideally suit someone with an interest in walking art, creative mapping, performative journeys or placemaking activities, but we are interested to hear from all artists and cultural practitioners who wish to explore this place-based residency.

Artists will be responsible for engaging with the communities of the different towns and villages that connect the Moray Way and develop work that resonates with these communities and the landscape between them. The artist will have creative control around the residency approach, which will be reviewed and confirmed by the AIM partnership.

The deadline for applications is 9am on Monday 7 June 2021, with interviews taking place on Friday 11 June, 2021.

The Moray Way Association is committed to increasing our diversity and inclusion. As such we particularly encourage people from underrepresented communities to apply, including but not limited to disabled people, those who are D/deaf, Black/+ People of Colour, those from minority ethnic communities, those who are part of the LGBT+ community, and all those who feel their voices are not commonly represented.
