Time Exchange Call for Artists

Time Exchange aims to create a novel residency structure in which for every hour artists spend working in their studio on their own projects, they will in turn provide an hour of volunteer effort and service back to the community.

Call for artists application.

Deadline: 10/24/2014.

The program offers residencies lasting from one to three months, in newly-renovated storefront space at 4017 Lancaster Avenue, at the intersection of a diverse array of communities in West Philadelphia, and will provide artists with free studio space, a monthly stipend, and basic tools and supplies. In exchange, artists will provide skill and time-based resources for the surrounding communities, working on civic projects identified by residents and community-based organizations.

Time Exchange offers an unparalleled opportunity for artists to explore the complex and necessary, if uncharted, role that responsible and accountable creative practice can play in a challenged and changing neighborhood. The residency will aim to create a framework through which the often-invisible resources of a neighborhood (the people, the history, and the experience of everyday life) can be understood as highly valuable components in revitalizing a neighborhood. By providing clear intersections and negotiations of time between community residents and visiting artists, Time Exchange will aim to cultivate a new dynamic and role for creativity and reciprocity in the revitalization of a neighborhood.

Pankhurst in the Park

Alexandra Arts – Female Artists from a wide spectrum of creative disciplines (including sculpture, craft, writing, dance and performance) who are from UK and beyond are invited to submit proposals to undertake an artist residency at Manchester’s Alexandra Park between October and November 2014.

Click here to apply.

Deadline: 9/1/2014.

Alexandra Arts is an artist-led collective based in Manchester’s Alexandra Park. Intertwined with an arts programme, we are setting up an International Artist Residency for an artist to explore Alexandra Park’s significant heritage connected to the iconic Suffragettes leader, Emmeline Pankhurst. Pankhurst (born Goulden,1858 –1928) was a political activist and instrumental in gaining the right for women to vote. She was born only yards from Alexandra Park in the neighbouring Moss Side Estate and locally there are no traces of her legacy.

This International Artist Residency opportunity welcomes a female artist working in any art form to be inspired by, contemporise and creatively illuminate the significant local history that is linked to Alexandra Park. The International Artist Residency places a strong emphasis on engagement and collaboration, seeking to deepen the existing relationships between Alexandra Park and the multicultural community surrounding it.

We are an artist-led collective and our Artist in Residency opportunity is created by artists for artists, this is what makes our organisation special 🙂
