NFM will be partnering with Edinburgh-based Stills, Scotland's leading contemporary photography gallery and digital labs, for a further Connect/Exchange residency strand for artists with a moving image/digital/screen-based culture practice. Four artists (two based in Scotland, and two in the North East) will be selected from open call. The deadline for applications is Sunday 16 March.
The Scotland – North East strand of Northern Film & Media’s Connect/Exchange will expand on the current programme to enable cross-border networking between Scottish and NE-based artists. Four artists (two Scotland-based, two North East based) will be selected from open call and will be provided with access to Still’s facilities & equipment, allowing experimentation with new ideas / development of existing projects or approaches, whilst also supported by a programmed series of exhibition & studio tours and visits with curators.
We are looking for artists who have ambitious new or early stage projects and who would benefit from the specific skills, knowledge and networks Stills and NFM can provide to test out / experiment with ideas for the project’s development. Artists could be emerging / early career, or be looking to explore a new angle / approach to their practice. Artists need to be open about sharing early-stage ideas, thoughts and processes publicly both online and in person, be willing to exchange ideas with other artists undertaking the project, see the benefit of supported networking and see how this opportunity can have a long-term career impact.
