The Creative Landscapes Project Seeks Deaf or Disabled Artist for participatory arts residency

A Deaf or disabled artist is being sought to lead a participatory residency from July to September in Hastings and St Leonards, East Sussex.

The artist(s) will work in the town to produce their own artwork and to run hands-on workshops for local people around the broad theme of Revealed: Hastings and St Leonards. The workshops will run in and around The Stade and the Hastings Museum and Art Gallery. The residency will culminate in an exhibition or event for Heritage Open Days, September 9th-12th 2010.

Applications are invited from Deaf and disabled artists working in visual arts, photography and/or creative writing, who are enthusiastic about participatory creative work and who wish to develop their practice. Emergent and early career artists are encouraged to apply and support and advise from an Artist Mentor will be provided.

The fee for the residency is £6000 for 30 days work. A site visit for potential applicants has been organised for Monday 24th May and the deadline for applications is Wednesday 2nd June.

Creative Landscapes is part of the Accentuate Programme and seeks to increase opportunities for engagement with heritage and the historic environment by Deaf and disabled people through creative exploration. Accentuate is funded by Legacy Trust UK, an independent charity set up to create a cultural legacy from the 2012 Olympic Games across the UK.
