Endelienta Residencies 2019

 Endelienta Residencies 2019
Summary:Residency Opportunity
Deadline: 31 May 2019
Date Posted: 01 May 2019
Details: Endelienta is a cultural organisation working 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, arts and reflective days through a year-round programme of events, offering more people the opportunity to participate in the arts.

One of our ambitions is to support 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 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 is the fourth year that we are able to offer this opportunity.

The residencies are for 7 days working on location at St Endellion, to take place from Thursday 19 to 26 September 2019. A stipend of 600 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 reflection on the experience of the residency at St Endellion and make a presentation at the end of the residential week (Thursday evening 26 September). The residencies are scheduled simultaneously, offering candidates the opportunity to work together (if they wish to do so) or in parallel.

How to apply
If you are interested to apply for this residency opportunity as a composer, writer or visual artist, please email your CV (max 2 page A4), with a personal statement (max 1 page A4) and max 2 examples of (or digital links to) work to date to Endelienta. Your statement should include an indication of what you would like to achieve with the residency. All attached files must be named using this format: SURNAME/FIRSTNAME/DOCUMENT NAME (eg. CV, Statement, or Example 1)

The deadline for applications is Friday 31 May 2019, 12noon. Interviews of shortlisted candidates will take place on Wednesday 12 June at St Endellion.
