Opportunity: SSW x Counterflows caregivers’ residency

2nd May 2022

[ID] Duck egg blue mats cover the floor. They have white and black taped symbols, crosses and lines all over. In the top right corner of the photo a white person wearing a black jumpsuit kneels, facing away from the camera. They have bare feet, which lift slightly from the mats. They are lifting a child, also with bare feet and in mustard yellow trousers, up from or down to a light green walking frame, which sits almost out of shot. Image © Laura Bradshaw [supplied]

Four weeks' funded residency for artists with caregiving responsibilities.

Apply now.

Caring for family (bio or chosen), community and/or kin, either professionally or informally can form and create artistic practices as well as disrupt them. We recognise how difficult it is for artists with caring responsibilities to grasp time, energy, resources and focus for their practices.

This residency offers artists funding, flexibility, respite and space for self-care, to focus on their own needs and support their continued learning and development. The residency is now in its second year and is running alongside a wider Radical Care project to embed and sustain support for artist-caregivers at Scottish Sculpture Workshop (SSW) and Counterflows, supported by Creative Scotland.

Deadline for applications: Friday 20 May 2022, 12 noon BST
