with Cove Park & The Work Room

Arts Practice
Deadline: 10.02.2020
Published: 12.12.2019

The Work Room and Cove Park are collaborating again in 2020 to offer two Work Room members a residency at Cove Park, for themselves along with one or multiple collaborator(s) from other disciplines. The residency is intended to bring a new dimension to a creative practice or practices. In 2019, we awarded two residencies, each comprising of two ‘artist weeks’ each.

The residencies will take place at Cove Park between May and October 2020. Cove Park will work with the selected artists to ensure that the dates, duration and structure of their residencies are as beneficial as possible. Please note that due to the nature of Cove Park’s programmes, a degree of flexibility may be required.

In 2020, we have 4 ‘artist weeks’ of residency available and we will consider a number of configurations of those weeks based on the needs of the project proposed. We encourage applications which seek to investigate multi-disciplinary approaches.

The lead artist can propose to use the time as they wish, with collaborators for the whole or parts of the time. They may choose to have all collaborators on site for the entirety of the residency, or might choose to have collaborators join them for a few days of the residency only. For example a lead artist could apply to come to Cove Park for 1 week, with 2 collaborators each spending 3–4 days with them there (making up a total of 2 ‘artist weeks’), or a collaborative group of 4 artists spending 3–4 days simultaneously at Cove Park (again making up a total of 2 ‘artist weeks’).

Please note this opportunity is open to members of The Work Room & their collaborators only.
