A residency programme designed for a wide range of specialists – making critical and practical connections.
Offering space and time for thinking across art forms
The Interdisciplinary Residencies bring together artists and cultural practitioners from a wide range of disciplines to work at Hospitalfield for a two week residency. Whilst our programme is rooted in the visual arts, this programme is structured to support a far wider range of activity. Our intention is to provide opportunities for critical and practical connections to be made between those working in a very wide range of media and who have an urgent project or period of research to undertake within a supportive environment.
The Interdisciplinary Programme tends to attract practitioners from Scotland and the UK and around the world. Over the last five years we have hosted artists from over twenty two countries. We have also found that the programme is useful for individuals and for those who otherwise don’t find the time to work in collaborative partnerships.
Hospitalfield works with leading professionals in diverse fields to promote, review applications, select and feed into the Interdisciplinary Residency. Selectors for the 2019 Interdisciplinary Residencies are Fleur Darkin, Artistic Director of Scottish Dance Theatre, and Ainslie Roddick, Curator at the Centre for Contemporary Art in Glasgow.
During the residency each individual focuses on their proposed project or piece of work, using workspace to suit either in the historic light filled studios, their bedroom space, our gardens or Victorian period rooms. There is a programme of introductions and discussion throughout the residency, with meal times together becoming a focus for conversation.
The deadline is Monday 12 November 2018 for Interdisciplinary and Print Residencies in March, May, August and November 2019. There is an online application process which you can access through other pages on this website.
As this residency is not supported directly through public funds there is a cost attached of £630 for the two weeks which includes full board accommodation, we try to keep it as affordable as possible. We have found that past residents have either paid for the time themselves or raised money through funding applications to private trusts or public funding bodies. There have also been several who have had a contribution to the cost from their employer.
