Watershed is offering three makers’ residencies to research new projects at the intersection of craft, technology and culture. Delivered in collaboration with the Crafts Council, i-DAT, the Autonomatic research group at University College Falmouth, and supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, this is a unique opportunity to explore process and practice, develop experimental works and make new connections.
There are three residencies available, open to UK-based makers (makers can apply as individuals or groups) from all contemporary craft disciplines. The residencies will be hosted within three distinct collaborative environments in the South West of England: Pervasive Media Studio (Bristol), i-DAT (Plymouth) and Autonomatic (Falmouth). The residencies will support early stage projects that require critical, and technical, investigation and discussion.
Each resident maker/s will receive research, development and production support for their project and the residency will last for three months, beginning in January 2013, culminating in a showcase event in late March.
For more information on the programme and details on how to apply, please download the brief and application form below.
