A creative retreat for experienced artists
SPACE/TIME is a paid creative retreat for experienced artists from all disciplines that asks the question “How does an artist keep developing?”
It aims to refresh participants through a stimulating examination of creativity. During the residency, we will explore how creativity can be nourished and how artists can continue to challenge themselves to develop.
The residency combines facilitated dialogue - built around a series of self-generated questions - with time for individual reflection and work. It is led by Nicholas Bone and Alice McGrath.
Participation in Space/Time is open to experienced artists and selection is through an open call process. Participants are paid a fee to attend the retreat.
The next Space/Time residency runs from 23rd-27th February 2018 at the Swallow Theatre, near Whithorn in Dumfries & Galloways. The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 22nd December - in order to apply, please download application information here and an Equalities Monitoring form here.
