At Create Space London (CSL) we are very pleased to announce our new Artist-Maker in Residence (AMR) program in partnership with Brent Council’s Cultural Service and part-funded by Arts Council England.
The AMR will help CSL to further explore the ways in which its makerspace can be used to engage the local community and support active learning and creative development. It will demonstrate the effectiveness of a makerspace as a platform for arts and technology education.
From December the 1st, we will be accepting applications for a six-month residency. The successful applicant will be granted a private studio space, 24-hour access to our site facilities, a £400pcm allowance and a £3000 commissioned work to be exhibited at the new Willesden Green Library Gallery space for four weeks. During this time the resident will also be expected to carry out six public engagement workshops that relate directly to the practice of the resident and that utilise the facilities at CSL.
We are looking for applicants to generate proposals for works specific to the residency that will reflect three core themes; collaboration, technology and visual communication. The consideration of these themes should be evident throughout the applicant’s previous works. The focus taken by the resident should be one that looks to explore, inspire and imagine positive futures and outcomes for the relationship between community-centered societies and the increasingly technological environment that surrounds them.
