The British Council and its partners have announce a new UK | Caribbean artist residency programme focusing on transatlantic exchanges between the UK, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago.

The residency can be research and/or practice-based and includes round trip travel, accommodation, a materials/project budget, an artist fee and a stipend for living costs. The residency is supported by British Council, its UK partners: Delfina Foundation, Gasworks, Autograph ABP and Hospitalfield; and Caribbean partners: NLS Kingston in Jamaica and Alice Yard in Trinidad.

This pilot residency is designed to accommodate two (3) three-month residency placements beginning between January and March 2017 in Jamaica and Trinidad and the residency will have an open-ended outcome. It offers supportive bases with partner institutions, connected with the successful candidate’s proposal.

The pilot residency programme will accept proposals from two UK based visual artists, art critics or curators who are interested in participating in a practice or research-based residency in Jamaica or Trinidad. After this pilot residency, the residency programme will open up to include other arts disciplines.

The full application requirements, application form and submission instructions can be found here.

Deadline: Friday 2 December 2016.
