Reliably informed

After the 2020 a lot of artists have had a nice trip away to a beautiful island to get inspired sounds like bliss, but unbelievably this is being offered by BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, in partnership with Bothy Project (who run a network of small-scale, off-grid art residency spaces in distinct and diverse locations around Scotland). They recently announced that they will be supporting an emerging artist based in the North East of England to undertake a week’s residency at Sweeney’s Bothy on the Isle of Eigg, one of the most picturesque Hebridean Islands. 

Taking place from 5-12th March 2021, the BALTIC Bothy Residency will provide the opportunity for an artist to work in a unique environment and have time and space to research, think, and develop their practice around some of the most inspiring landscapes the UK has to offer. On their return, participants are invited to share their research with the wider public by submitting a blog entry on the Bothy Project website.

Applications are free and the deadline is on Friday 27th November. The residency is supported with a £500 artist’s fee, a travel bursary and the Bothy accommodation, a live/work space, for seven days. To apply, click here.
