A residency and professional development project for craft-designer-makers based in Scotland and in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
Closing date: 10 May 2021
Bothy Project, Fogo Island Arts and Fogo Island Workshops are delighted to announce a residency and professional development project for craft-designer-makers based in Scotland and in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Cross Currents has been generously funded through British Council Scotland and Creative Scotland’s Connect and Collaborate programme, with additional support from Shorefast.
Two Scotland-based practitioners will undertake a residency at Bothy Project’s Sweeney’s Bothy, Isle of Eigg, and two Newfoundland and Labrador-based practitioners will participate in a residency with Fogo Island Arts on Fogo Island. The four selected practitioners will connect digitally to build professional networks with each other, and to participate in a series of sessions with invited mentors. At its completion, the project will be shared widely through an online event.
Proposed work should engage creatively and critically with the residency themes and take the resources offered by Bothy Project and Fogo Island Arts/Fogo Island Workshops into account.
Two Scotland-based practitioners will receive:
- Two-week residency at Sweeney’s Bothy, Isle of Eigg, in August/September 2021*
- Online conversations with fellow participants
- Online Mentor Sessions
- Participation in the online public event
A fee of £2000 is provided to cover the residency period, participation in online conversations with fellow residents and mentors, plus a travel allowance of £250. (*Please note Sweeney’s Bothy does not have workshop facilities, however meetings with makers on Scotland’s West Coast can be arranged).
