Open call for submissions for project resident artists

Context is a piloting project in Somerset that aims to increase the support and provision for the visual arts within the rural county.

During Context there is a month paid residency for three South West based artists, solo or collaborative, to be given space and time to create, challenge and develop their practice in a studio space in Taunton, Somerset.

The residency aims to increase the amount of space there is in Somerset, especially in the county town, which is devoted to the creation of new contemporary visual arts. It also has the objective to bring artists together to challenge and develop practice for the benefit of the artist(s) involved.

The residency runs form the 12th July until the 13th August, and will be based at Somerset College. The residency hopes to support artists financially and physically by providing space and opportunities to create and engage the public in their practice.

Artists are asked to put together a proposal, with documentation of their artwork as submissions. Deadline for submissions is the 4th June.
