Cockpit Arts is delighted to announce the Cockpit Arts 2018 Ceramic Residency, made possible this year by the generosity of a Circle of Patrons. This is a unique development opportunity for a talented ceramicist to explore new ideas and concepts: Cockpit Arts will provide a support structure for the selected maker to develop their work and ideas and, at the same time, work towards a sustainable model of practice. The one year Residency is worth £5,000 and covers the cost of Cockpit Arts’ support services including a designated Residency studio. The Residency is open to all UK based ceramic practitioners.
Cockpit Arts has a particular interest in supporting a ceramicist who has a strong desire to experiment and take risks with their practice over the Residency period. The panel, comprising gallerist Sarah Myerscough; art critic Emma Crichton-Miller, ceramicist Felicity Aylieff and Cockpit Arts Chief Executive Vanessa Swann, will be looking for a maker who demonstrates originality, innovation, creativity, craft skills and quality in the work and concepts presented. As well as these criteria, we want to work with a maker who can clearly demonstrate the difference being at Cockpit Arts will make to their practice and business.
We welcome applications from a wide range of makers across all ages, backgrounds and nationalities, at all stages of their careers. In order to be eligible to apply, you must:
- Be a UK resident currently living in the UK and entitled to remain in the UK for the period of the Residency (Cockpit Arts is not able to sponsor or support Visa applications in any way.)
- Be willing and able to make a commitment to take up the Residency for its full one year duration from 1 January 2018
- Be available to attend the interview on Thursday 12 October
- Be available to move into a studio in January 2018
