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 area.
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.
