In The Meanwhile… A call to artists, designers and makers
The Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent economic crisis have seen a large number of shops in the city centre become empty. In The Meanwhile seeks to support the council to reinvigorate these spaces during this interim period.
There are now 2 artist in residence places available with the project. Artists will be selected by a panel drawn from the partner organisations.
Artists and creatives are invited to submit proposals to test new ideas and create prototypes for light-based digital or sculptural work. This is ideal for artists who wish to test ideas for larger-scale work but lack the funds and time to do so.
The pieces will be used as part of a light trail around Bath in January 2022. You will be given access to studio space if needed, tools, equipment, and production support. as well as being paired with a creative technologist to assist in the technical aspects of working with light as a medium.
You must be a mid-career artist based in or around the Bath and North East Somerset area. You do not need to have a background in light-based or technology-based work, but have a keenness to work in this medium to expand your practice. They are welcoming applications from communities who migrate in and out of Bath.
- Submissions close on the 15th of October
- Interviews will be on the 21st/22nd October
- Residency Period: November/December (10 days/half days within this timeframe)
- Exhibition period: January
