Northern Film & Media are delighted to be launching another round of Connect/Exchange, our exchange, research and networking residency programme for artists with a screen-based practice.
We are looking for ambitious and out-going early and mid-career artists who are open to testing out and sharing new ideas, who have a new project they want to undertake initial research and development for, and who will benefit from the support and networking opportunities Connect/Exchange offers. Artists are supported via a two-part residency, together with associated professional networking events.
There are spaces for eight artists on the scheme, including three artists based in the North East, one artist based in Scotland, one artist based in Wales and three artists based nationally. These will take place at our host partners Metal (Liverpool), Stills (Edinburgh), Chapter (Cardiff) and The NewBridge Project + Baltic 39 (NewcastleGateshead).
For further information about Connect/Exchange, our host partners and how to apply see the Connect/Exchange project site.
DEADLINE: Deadline for residencies with Stills: 10am Monday 27th March 2017. The deadline for residencies at Metal, Chapter and Baltic 39 + The NewBridge Project has now passed.
