Residency at East London Printmakers
Residency Programme details
Since East London Printmakers' tenth anniversary in 2008, the studio has been running a residency programme. The purpose of this opportunity is to promote professional development in printmaking and to create an arena for visiting artists to share their knowledge and experiences with ELP members. The programme supports the development of new work and access to a network of artists in London.
The studio is based in the heart of East London's contemporary art scene, close to Vyner Street, London Fields and Regent Street Studios.
Two artists per year will receive:
* 24-hour access to the studio's facilities
* £100 budget for materials
* £200 fee for running a one-day master workshop
* Free membership of East London Printmakers for one year
* Storage space for materials and a plan chest drawer
Applicants are invited to submit a proposal for a project lasting no longer than twelve consecutive weeks, focusing on either screen-printing or relief and intaglio. Applicants must demonstrate prior knowledge of printmaking, however the programme encourages experimentation, thus artists from all disciplines are encouraged to apply.
The programme is open to local, national and foreign artists. Applicants need to be self-sufficient as this opportunity does not include accommodation or expenses for materials. Recipients must be prepared to teach a one-day master workshop and host an artist's talk for the benefit of ELP members. Opportunities to learn new printmaking skills will be dependaet on workshops and places will be available at the members' concessionary rate.
Applicants should send, by recorded delivery:
* a completed application form
* a resumé
* 10 photographs/digital prints or one CD/ DVD/VHS
Please do not send actual art pieces as ELP will retain applications and confirm receipt by email. The ELP committee meet twice a year and applicants will be notified by email within two weeks of the deadline.
* 6 December 2009 for an Artist Residency between January and June 2010
* 1 June 2010 for an Artist Residency between July and December 2010
