Endelienta Residency 2017 for a writer, composer and artist

 Endelienta Residency 2017 for a writer, composer and artist
Summary:Residency Opportunity
Deadline: 31 March 2017
Date Posted: 13 March 2017
Details: Endelienta is a cultural organisation working to foster the arts
and spirituality in North Cornwall. Building on the success and
reputation of the St Endellion Music Festivals and on the unique setting of St Endellion, Endelienta promotes music, literature and arts through a year-round programme of events, offering more people the opportunity to participate in the arts in North Cornwall.

One of our ambitions is to support emerging artists, in particular musicians, composers, writers and visual artists. We want to share the experience and spirit of the inspirational setting of St Endellion with talented creative minds and enable opportunities for working on and showcasing new compositions, writing or art on location.

With support from Arts Council England we are able to offer a short residency to a composer, a writer and a visual artist. This will be the second year we offer this opportunity.

The residencies are for 7 days working on location at St Endellion, to take place from 5 to 12 July 2017. A stipend of 675 including travel expenses is available for a selected composer, a writer and an artist. Accommodation and work space is provided on site.

The purpose of the residency is to support the selected candidates in their creative work, without limitations with regard to subject matter. We expect however that the three successful candidates will incorporate in their work a re ection on the St Endellion location and make a presentation at the end of the residential week. The residencies are scheduled simultaneously, offering candidates the opportunity to work together or in parallel.
