Cove Park & The Work Room
Arts Practice | Deadline: 23.04.2018
The Work Room and Cove Park are collaborating again in 2018 to offer a Work Room member a residency at Cove Park either for themselves, or along with collaborators from other disciplines. The residency is intended to bring a new dimension to a creative practice or practices.
Cove Park creates year-round residencies across art forms for national and international artists, collaborative groups and organisations. Cove Park is located on an outstanding 50-acre site overlooking Loch Long on Scotland's west coast (just 60 minutes from Glasgow by road or rail).
Cove Park supports the creation of new work and new ways of working, especially through collaboration across disciplinary borders, and research that takes artists into new professional or creative territory. The summer programme, run May – September each year, brings artists from all creative disciplines, and this year will include artists from Mexico, Canada, UAE, Korea and across the UK.
Cove Park sleeps up to 12 people in individual, self-catering accommodation (including 1 fully accessible bedroom).
The Work Room (TWR) is a membership organisation, committed to creating a sustainable environment for independent artists working in dance in Scotland. Our mission is to empower artists to lead in their practice, enabling them to make high quality, intelligent, pioneering contemporary dance for diverse contexts at home and internationally.
This year we have 4 ‘artist weeks’ of residency time to allocate: The lead artist/s can use the time as they wish, with collaborators for the whole or parts of the time. We encourage applications which seek to investigate multi-disciplinary approaches.
The residency is a paid opportunity.

Deadline for applications in Monday 23rd April.
