Artcore is providing two regional artists the opportunity of a two-month artist in residence programme at the Artcore Gallery in Derby.

After two very successful programmes, Artcore invites emerging and established artists to apply for our third Bridge the Gap: Artist in Residence Programme.  One of the residencies is for a recent arts graduate from Derby University.  The artists will work in a shared space, enabling discussion, interaction and collaboration. Each artist will be given a bursary to develop a body of work and a mentor to guide them. Local and national marketing support will be provided by Artcore and e-catalogues will be produced to support the artist.

The residency will culminate in a Bridge the Gap: Artists in Residence Exhibition and launch event, with work exhibited at Artcore Gallery and London Road Community Hospital. Some of the work created will therefore need to be suitable for a 2D display enviornment. It will also need to be appropriate for a hospital setting – uplifting, yet challenging.

This opportunity will include:

  • Artists’ bursary of £800 for exhibition ready work
  • Exhibition of work at gallery/non gallery venues
  • Artist blog
  • Artist talks
  • Mentorship by an established artist
  • E Catalogue
  • Opportunity to exhibit the work along with other contemporary artists
  • Opportunity to deliver workshops/projects
  • Publicity and marketing support and encouragement to sell their work

Application process:

Artist’s submissions should inlcude the following documents:

  • A full written proposal, outlining their response to the overall aim of the project, information on how work will be produced during the residency and how it will incorperate your ideas (max. 1 side of A4)
  • An artist statement
  • A sample of your work and/or up to five images of recent artworks, indicating the medium and size
  • An up to date CV explaining your experience
  • Proof of public liability insurance.
  • A DBS check (preferred)

There will be an opportunity to visit artcore to view the exhibition space on Monday 20th, March 2017 between 10am to 4pm. Please contact Artcore to confirm.

Selection Criteria:
Each application will be scored against the following criteria:

  • Concept and potential project ideas and the brief
