Open Call: Group Residency at Scottish Sculpture Workshop

Closing date 29 July 2022

Deadline for applications: Friday 29 July 2022, 1pm BST

Group residency at SSW offers artists dedicated time, support and access to workshops for the development of their practice. Coming together on our rural site in Aberdeenshire, up to 6 artists live and work alongside each other for four weeks at a time. We are currently inviting applications for 3 residency groups in September 2022, November 2022 and January 2023.

Residency at SSW is experimental, collective and supported by SSW’s skilled team. We have written a little about what to expect from residency at SSW on our website. The combination of access to facilities and workshops with peer exchange and learning is unique and offers lots of possibilities in the development of your practice.

With this, the programme is particularly suited to artists who;

  • want to test out new ideas or directions in their work
  • are interested in connecting with materials and processes in our workshops
  • are seeking connection with other artists
  • value open-ended and experimental approaches to making

Throughout the residency we facilitate a loose structure of optional group activity, including studio sharings, meals, walks, saunas and workshops, to build connection and conversations between the group.

We welcome applications from artists who are;

  • at any stage in their practice
  • working in any form/medium/discipline

Artists do not need to have attended residency before, do not need to have undertaken formal arts training or be familiar with workshop environments.
