    Tyneside Cinema, 10 Pilgrim Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 6QG, GB

Tyneside Cinema is excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for the Pixel Palace Artist in Residence programme 2012

The residency offer is to artists of international calibre working in new technologies and moving image. Support is provided to develop new work via a well resourced studio, editing suite and access to high end AV equipment. Opportunities will be available to engage with the working cinema and its surroundings. The selected artist will also exchange skills and knowledge with artists and young people (including Tyneside Cinema’s Factory group) with varying stages of development through participation in the atelier process.

The residency will be an active period of time for an artist to develop exploratory/inquiry based work that compliments and informs the current Pixel Palace programme. The residency space will be shared with other artists and is based in the social environment of the cinema, creating opportunities to produce live events and develop formal and informal discussions.
