Following The Light, Cornwall Residency
Deadline: 24/02/2020 | City: Lizard Point | Region: Cornwall and Isles of Scilly | Country: United Kingdom | Mayes Creative
Following The Light: Lizard Point Multidisciplinary Residency (March 17th-21st 2020). A wonderful opportunity to spend time with like-minded people in the inspiring location of Lizard Point, Cornwall, the UK's most Southerly point.
About The Residency
This group residency takes place at Lizard Point YHA, nestled between the lighthouse and the sea.
We welcome all artforms - lots of room for site specific working; dance, music etc. There is a large sitting room and two smaller spaces plus a laundry which can be made into a darkroom space on request.
We are also keen to include researchers/enthusiasts of all disciplines; if you know anyone who you think would be interesting to include (collaborators perhaps?), please encourage them to apply.
There will be lots of opportunities for sharing work/ideas with others at the residency and we encourage everyone to bring ideas, enthusiasms and any relevant research to share; our overview project theme is light/solar.
No outcomes are required, but successful participants are also eligible to submit work to our accompanying pop-up exhibition at the Lizard Lighthouse Heritage Centre (see FAQs for details) and to future exhibition/collaboration opportunities.
All accommodation is shared at Lizard Point YHA (no more than 4 to a room), although there are 2 small family rooms which could potentially be bought as private twin/doubles. Please contact us for details using the enquiry form on CuratorSpace.
We will set up a facebook page so residents can organise lift sharing to the Lizard Point/taxi sharing from the station. We will help where we can.
There is wifi but very little phone signal (bliss!). Nice pubs to walk to nearby; basic food in the village and a larger store in nearby Mullion.
As this is low cost opportunity we do expect the residents to be reasonably self-sufficient and share responsibility for looking after the space. YHA staff will not be on hand to respond immediately to requests, although we do have a designated MC representative on site.
Also available during the residency:
**Ancient Stone Circles with solar alignments: walk with
**Astroarchaeology expert Carolyn Kennett FRSA (transport not provided, but we try to lift share)
**Measuring The Universe Installation/performance at the lighthouse on Friday evening by Justin Wiggan and Joanna Mayes
**Talk on the story of Cornwall's solar watchers by Carolyn Kennett.
**Pop up Following The Light exhibition at the Lighthouse Heritage Centre (Friday/Sat)
**Cornwall Artists' learning/networking day: Solar Inspiration with workshop by Mayes Creative’s Joanna Mayes and Carolyn Kennett on creative heritage engagement and creating successful interdisciplinary partnerships. A chance to meet local artists and join our networking event.
This residency is part of the Measuring The Universe project, produced by Mayes Creative and kindly supported by Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund and FEAST.
