Artist Opportunity


Exchange/Research/Networking residencies for artists with a screen-based practice, taking place across the UK

Northern Film & Media are looking for ambitious and out-going early and mid-career artists who are open to testing out and sharing new ideas, who have a new project they want to undertake initial research & development for, and who will benefit from the support and networking opportunities Connect/Exchange offers. Artists are supported via a two-part residency, together with associated professional networking events.

There are spaces for eight artists on the scheme - three artists based in the North East, one artist based in Scotland, one artist based in Wales and three artists based nationally. These will take place at our host partners Metal (Liverpool), Stills (Edinburgh), Chapter (Cardiff) and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art + The NewBridge Project (NewcastleGateshead).

For further information about Connect/Exchange, our host partners and how to apply see the Connect/Exchange project site.

Deadline for residencies with Metal, Chapter and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art + The NewBridge Project: 10.00 Monday 16 January 2017.
Deadline for residencies with Stills: 10.00 Monday 27 March 2017.
