Call for artists' submissions: FLI Residency, Northwest England. DEADLINE APPROACHING
Leading digital arts agency folly and Lanternhouse are delighted to announce a new call for artists' residency proposals as part of their successful FLI scheme.
The FLI Residencies offer support to artists working with new technologies to develop their ideas and extend their practice, with a particular emphasis on participatory activity.
The programme meets a real need for artists to have access to the high quality discourse and enriching creative environments that Lanternhouse and folly provide. Based in Ulverston, on the edge of the Lake District National Park, resident artists are able to devote time and space to their practice, engaging collaboratively with the host organisations and a rich tapestry of local communities, artists and creatives in the Northwest of England. Details of previous artists in residence can be found at http://www.fliresidencies.org.uk
In 2010 one exceptional applicant will be offered a residency period of 2-3 months. This opportunity will be of particular interest to an artist who is naturally collaborative, seeking time and space to develop new works, research innovative ideas and deliver some truly participative activity.
£2000 GBP is available to cover expenses and support the artist during their residency.
