Who needs a seaside breather?
This annual Open Call invites professional artists in need of creative space to come and work in our beach-side studios. You can test out new ideas with support from a friendly and experienced team. For 2022, we are particularly interested in supporting artists who identify as disabled. Our building is fully accessible and there is a cash award of £250.
Residencies are up to 5 full days during August 2022 in one of our beautiful studios. The time may be used to test out your material or explore your ideas in more depth with the added benefit of access to advice and support from our in-house dance professionals should you wish. This may include: technical support; advice and help with funding applications; career guidance; objective observation and feedback.
Although there is no expected outcome from your residency, being involved in the PDSW community gives you the ideal opportunity to reach out and offer open classes, workshops, talks or sharings, all of which we would be happy to discuss and help you with. In return, the PDSW team is also keen to learn from our Visiting Artists about how best to support their practice.
Applicants for this year will be sorted by the following priority areas:
- Applicants (from anywhere in the UK) who identify as disabled
- Applicants (from anywhere in the UK) who have experienced prejudice or racism
- Applicants based in the south-west of England (area as defined by Arts Council England)
We will be assessing applications according to:
- How your proposed work connects with our values: Kind Inclusive Inspiring Passionate
- Potential of your work to contribute to our curatorial themes
- How you are proposing to connect your work with audiences, communities or participants
You must be over 18 years of age.
We are pleased to offer this opportunity to artists at any stage in their artistic career.
If you feel there is a barrier preventing you from applying, please get in touch to discuss how we can work with you to remove those barriers.
Application forms can be supplied in an alternative format if required or you can apply by voice note or video (see separate guidance on how to do this).
Each successful visiting company will be given £250 to support the cost of accommodation, travel or other access needs.
Please let us know what access support you might need in order to do a residency with us, e.g. quiet space or a support worker.
Please contact email@example.com if you would like to discuss any of the above
