Artist in Residence

03 March 2017

Arts & Business Scotland Creativity at Work Opportunity

Arts & Business Scotland is offering an opportunity for a Scottish based artist, designer or crafts person to be in residence at Foundation Scotland’s Edinburgh office. The community foundation facilitates philanthropy and strategic grant making to achieve lasting impact in communities and charitable organisations across Scotland.

The residency will culminate in the production of a final piece of permanent artwork that will be installed and sited within the organisation’s main conference room in their new offices. The final artwork will capture the essence of the work that they do in an innovative and visually exciting way. It will inspire everyone who is associated with the charity.

The artist is expected to allocate 35 days to working with the organisation to develop and produce the artwork. During this period the artist will be expected to engage with the organisation’s staff, trustees, grantees, philanthropists, donors and other stakeholders in order to fully understand their aims and aspirations.

The organisation will provide the artist with space and appropriate working conditions to carry out the residency period and will support all engagement work as necessary. A studio will not be provided though the artist will have access to the room where the artwork is to be sited when it is available.

Arts & Business Scotland will provide advice and support throughout the funded period of the residency and will evaluate the project on completion.

This is a paid opportunity and the total fee for both the residency and realisation of the permanent artwork is £10,000. This amount is to be fully inclusive of the artist’s fee and expenses (including travel), materials, technical and fabrication costs and installation.

Payment will be made through the Arts & Business Scotland Creativity at Work Programme, in part funded by Creative Scotland.

The permanent artwork should be completed by end of September 2017.
