The CENTRE FOR THE STUDY OF SUBSTRUCTURED LOSS is now accepting applications for its annual residency program. Artists, researchers, and other arts professionals are encouraged to apply.
The artist-in-residence candidates are selected annually through an open call application process or in some cases, by invitation. The program supports emerging and established artistic professionals/researchers working in any medium/discipline. Residents can continue with existing projects or undertake new research.
The residency program encourages experimentation and the development of multi/interdisciplinary studio work grounded in research within the field of grief and bereavement. The work can encompass and explore varying physical and emotional processes (or loss) that people undergo.
Previous residents and collaborators have undertaken both theoretical-historical and practice-led projects working with, but not limited to the following subject matter: the aging process and the elderly; cancer, disease, and terminal illness; sex work and sexual assault; abortion and miscarriage; suicide and survivorship; mental illness, mental health, and trauma; spousal and familial loss; and associated grief and bereavement-centered themes etc.
Participants are expected to present their findings when the residency program concludes.
The residency aims to provide working artistic professionals with a platform for research and production; one that may lead to expanded possibilities, collaboration, a broader network, and possibly new works.
The residency is open to artists, researchers, and other professionals from any country. The selection process is based on the merits and quality of artistic practice. The program is not available to students.
Residency programming is one (1) month in duration followed by a brief presentation period. The CENTRE provides mentorship and guidance throughout the creative development process including iteration, subject-specific research, presentation of works, as well as, access to local resources and administrative support.
LIVING & WORKING ENVIRONMENT:
The CENTRE will arrange for shared studio, workshop facilities, or office desk space for the duration of programming. The workspace will be located within a studio collective shared by other artists and working professionals. The environment will allow participants to engage in public conversations and cultivate dialogue with local artists and professionals.
Presentation space is provided.
Participants are expected to bring their own computer and other tools necessary for their work during the residency.
The CENTRE does not cover living/housing expenses (living space is not provided). Successful candidates are encouraged to apply for additional funding if necessary.
