SGSAH Researcher in Residence

15 July, 2019–16 September, 2019

We are looking to work with a PhD student ‘Researcher in Residence’ (from across the spectrum of arts, humanities and social sciences) to support the development of learning at SSW. Within our residential workshop facility, artists entangle their making/ material practices with the wider ecological social-economic and political concerns of our rural locale, bringing diverse approaches and practices together through residency, open access and artist-led projects.

In particular we are interested in working with a researcher in a hands-on manner within the workshops to explore:

— How a multi-species discourse informs future material practices and pedagogies
— How we support the cultivation of vital skills needed to make, repair and repurpose in a future with limited resources
— Making as a means for relationship building
— How our rural open-access workshop can inform the autonomy of its communities and the possibility for these communities to to exist outside hegemonic governance models

For information, criteria and how to apply, visit the SSW website. This residency is funded through the Scottish Graduate School of Arts and Humanities’ Artist Residency programme.
