Open call for a PhD student to explore making and material practices at Scottish Sculpture Workshop
Closing date: 16 Sep 2019
We are looking to work with a ‘Researcher in Residence’ through the SGSAH Artist Residency programme, to support the development of learning at Scottish Sculpture Workshop (SSW). Within our residential workshop facility, artists entangle their making/ material practices with the wider ecological social-economic and political concerns of our rural locale, bringing diverse approaches and practices together through residency, open access and artist-led projects.
In particular we are interested in working with a researcher in a hands-on manner within the workshops to explore:
— How a multi-species discourse informs future material practices and pedagogies
— How we support the cultivation of vital skills needed to make, repair and repurpose in a future with limited resources
— Making as a means for relationship building
— How our rural open-access workshop can inform the autonomy of its communities and the possibility for these communities to to exist outside hegemonic governance models
