To read more about the programme that we build around our residency programmes, who has been selected and the artists who have been in residence in the past please follow these links:
Please note that our residency programmes are devised for artists or others developing their working lives within the scope of contemporary art practices. We expect that applicants will have had a formal training or similar and will be developing projects and new work for public exhibition or developing their research with some form of future public outcome in mind. The programmes are structured for individuals working at a range of points in their career. Each has a specific focus with the Interdisciplinary Programme aiming to cultivate a group which has the broadest range of practices. Selectors will consider the application statements with care and in accordance with the aims of each of the programmes. We do not expect to do interviews so will select from the applications. Please see our Courses Programme if this sort of selection process does not seem right for you. The majority of the Courses are bookable and run on a first come first served basis. Our live deadlines for residencies are listed lower on this page in order of their deadline date. Please read through all information and the guidelines on the online application forms before choosing a residency and making an application.
Due to such high demand for the previous interdisciplinary residencies we have created another opportunity to apply for a residency here between 17-30 November 2014.
The application deadline for November’s Interdisciplinary Residency: 22 September 2014 at midnight.
The Interdisciplinary Residency Programme at Hospitalfield has been devised to appeal across all artforms, it has been planned as an opportunity to support those working across the arts who recognise that they require some time to focus on the development of their work.
We will ensure that this is a productive time set within the retreat-like setting of Hospitalfield, which works for individuals or collaborative groups as a test bed for developing their practice. It is also an opportunity that appeals to those arts professionals who need time to work on a specific project, undisturbed, in a supportive environment.
The Residency is open for application from artists, writers, producers, dancers, choreographers, commissioners, curators, educators, researchers and others developing their working lives within the scope of contemporary cultural practices.
The selectors will wish to bring together and group that reflects a very broad range of practices that will find the time invaluable and gain much from the informal exchange or working within the residency setting.
The Interdisciplinary Programme is not supported directly through public funds but Hospitalfield subsidises the cost with the aim of keeping it affordable. We expect that some of the applicants will pay for themselves and others will look to their professional body, local cultural support structures, private trusts or advocating agency for support. Examples of these would be; Creative Scotland, regional Artist & Craft Maker Awards, Hope Scott Trust, Royal Scottish Academy Residencies for Scotland Scheme and The Cross Trust in Scotland and similar agencies in other countries which practitioners can access information about through relevant Arts Councils and artist support organisations.
If you need information to support a funding application in advance of our selection dates please use the material on our website.
If you are selected for the residency by our panel we are happy to provide supporting documentation, such as an official letter, after the offer has been made.
Cost for a full 2 weeks residency is £560 full board and shorter residencies within this period can also be accommodated.
There are around 8 places available on this programme. We are open to applications from groups or pairs of collaborators.
Selection Panel for the Interdisciplinary Programme will be chaired by
Laura Simpson, Programme Manager, Hospitalfield.
As part of the Interdisciplinary Residency we have a place available for a solo Printmaking Residency at the Kinpurnie Print Studio at Hospitalfield between 17 and 30 November this year. Please follow this link for application details.
