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.
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 🙂
