Connect/Exchange residency involves exchange/research/networking residencies for artists with a moving image practice.

Northern Film & Media are looking for ambitious and out-going early and mid-career artists who are open to testing out and sharing new ideas, who have a new project they want to undertake initial research & development for, and who will benefit from the support and networking opportunities Connect/Exchange offers. Artists are supported via a two-part residency, together with associated professional networking events.

There are two spaces available: one artist based in the North-East and one based in Scotland to take part in this strand of Connect/Exchange. These will be taking place with our host partner Stills (Edinburgh).

Conceived and developed by Northern Film & Media, artists are supported with the initial research & development of a new project via a two-part residency, together with associated professional networking events. You’ll have a moving image, digital or screen-based practice and have a new project or idea which will extend your practice that you want to undertake initial research & development for.

To support your residency, Northern Film & Media will pay you a fee, plus provide an accommodation, travel and materials stipend. In addition, they also have a limited access bursary to support additional costs such as access and childcare.

Further information about the residency can be found here.

Deadline: 10am, Monday 27 March 2017.
