WHO: Standpoint Futures is a residency programme for regional UK artists, providing bespoke, high-calibre opportunities for discussion and interaction with the London art world. Standpoint Futures supports artists who are making a reputation in their region to spend time in London to make a significant impact on their practice and/or career without the need to relocate. Standpoint will select 4 artists in total – 1 from Scotland, 1 from Wales and 2 from England. Students and those within a year of graduation are not eligible to apply. Artists based in London are not eligible to apply.
Standpoint Futures residencies are designed to be flexible and responsive to the project, practice and desired outcomes of individual participants. This residency is particularly suited to artists who want to gain intensive feedback on their work, expand their networks and explore opportunities in the London art world, as well as realise a specific project, or test new ideas or practice methods with advice and support.
Artists will go to Standpoint for 4 weeks, during which time Standpoint implements a tailored set of meetings with artists, thinkers and curators of the highest calibre. Standpoint's aim is to give as much input into an artist’s work and career in the time we have, to make the most difference to their future practice and career. Through engaging in London's art scene and being in a new context, artists can develop ideas and contacts that will develop their practice, expertise and opportunities.
Standpoint Futures residencies award artists free studio and accommodation during their residency plus the advisor and mentoring meetings. Any additional costs i.e. materials, travel and living expenses must be covered by the artist. Artists must be able to commit to this before interview and your participation must not be subject to a funding application.
WHEN: Duration: 4 weeks Shortlisted artists will be invited for interview at Standpoint on Monday 16th July, 2012. Successful applicants will be asked to attend a meeting 4-6 weeks before the start of their residency to discuss in detail their practice, project and desired outcomes so as to plan the programme of meetings and visits.
