engage is delighted to announce that applications are open for venues wishing to host the Alexandra Reinhardt Memorial Award, Artist in Residence programme in 2015.
Galleries, museums and visual arts venues throughout the United Kingdom are
invited to submit proposals to host the 2015 Alexandra Reinhardt Memorial Award (ARMA), Artist in Residence,
worth £15,000. The Award funds a
10-week artist/s residency and public art commission to be displayed within the
host venue or nearby. A further £2,000
will be made available to the host venue to cover expenses.
Applications are invited from organisations with experience in hosting artist
residencies and/or running learning programmes, and those with little
experience for whom this would be a good opportunity to develop work in this
The residency will run from February to
April/May 2015. The artist/s will create an artwork (temporary,
semi-permanent or permanent) for the venue or nearby, and will carry out
education work with children, young people and/or family groups during the
course of their residency. The commissioned work will respond to the venue,
e.g. to a collection, display, the building, the venue’s history or to an
audience group who use the venue.
The venue does not need to have previously hosted an artist in residence or to
have commissioned artists to create temporary, semi-permanent or permanent
artworks to apply for this Award. The Award is a fantastic opportunity for
a venue to work with an artist or artists through a residency and public art
commission, and to develop their education programme with children, young
people or families. Artists will be
invited to apply for the artist residency in the summer of 2014.
