Deadline: 30 September 2010
Applications are now invited for the Laura Ashley Residency Award.  The successful artist will be based for a period of 3 months between May – July 2011 at the Creative Arts Units at Aberystwyth Arts Centre, part of Aberystwyth University.

The residency is open to UK visual artists in all disciplines including applied arts.  The aim of the residency is to allow an artist ‘time out’ to develop their work as they wish while also including 12 days of education work with people in the locality. The basic idea of this education work should be proposed by the artist with their application, and the details of the project will be planned and organised by Arts Centre staff with the artist, before their arrival.

The successful artist will receive studio space of c. 35 square metres, accommodation, living expenses for the duration of their residency and extra payment per day of education work.
Aberystwyth Arts Centre’s Artists’ Residencies are based in the award-winning Creative Arts Units designed by Thomas Heatherwick.  The residencies offer the chance for the artist to step away from the everyday constraints of life and experience time in which to develop individual artistic practice, and also to exchange ideas in a creative atmosphere with people from other disciplines. The Laura Ashley Residency also offers the opportunity to plan and carry out an educational project within the area. We do expect the successful artist to have some experience of education work, but they will also receive support and guidance from the experienced Visual Arts Education team.

How To Apply:
The deadline for applications for this residency which will take place from the start of May until the end of July 2011 is 30 September 2010. Applications can arrive at any point up until this date; early applications are encouraged.
