ISIS Arts Research Residencies 2011


Wednesday 30th March 2011

About ISIS
Selection criteria

Visual and Media artists, UK and beyond, are invited to apply for a three-week research residency at ISIS Arts, Newcastle Upon Tyne (UK), to take place between April to end of December 2011 (excluding August). 

There are 4 residency opportunities:
- 2 for artists based outside the UK.
- 2 for artists based in the greater North region, encompassing the North West including Cumbria, the North East and Yorkshire.

-   This is an opportunity for artists to spend time in a self-contained city centre studio space to research a new project or idea without the constraints of having to necessarily produce a body of work; the emphasis for this residency is on research not on finished art works.

-   There is a fee of £1500 for the minimum of a three-week period (to include travel and accommodation costs).

-   Artists may apply individually or as part of a group (however the fee per residency will not change).
-  All artists will have access to ISIS equipment, critical support and introductions to arts networks in the region.
Some technical assistance (2 days of training/technical support per residency) is also available but the artist is expected to be mostly self-reliant and familiar with the media they want to use.  

-          All artists are expected to present their work at ISIS as part of an artist talk event.

-          Unfortunately this opportunity is not open to students; all applicants will need to demonstrate evidence of professional practice. 


ISIS Arts is an artist led, visual and media arts organisation, which runs an international programme of commissions, residencies and events. ISIS Arts’ core ethos is to support artists to make critically engaged visual and media art, which is locally significant and internationally relevant, and to share the learning and relationships we gain.
We place artists at the centre of all our programmes creating physical, virtual and strategic ‘spaces’ for the production of art. We are interested in artists whose work seeks to reveal the world we live in, providing new perspectives on identity and challenging prejudices. We seek out and engage with artists of all backgrounds and cultures to facilitate international and inter-cultural exchange.
ISIS is committed to showing work within the public realm, engaging as wide an audience as possible in dialogue with artists and artworks, making our projects accessible to a diverse public.

Based in Newcastle city centre, ISIS has two studio spaces for visiting artists, a media training room, and an inflatable touring venue for sharing media arts with a wider audience.

ISIS works with many international, national and regional artists to support practice and exchange.
