Residency Programme – Scribus
ArtFunkl is delighted to offer the new Scribus series of Residencies for writers or digital media artists. This is part of a long term plan to expand the scope and number of residencies taking place at ArtFunkl, in order to create a more diverse community of connections, both within the ArtFunkl network, and within the environment of the city of Manchester.
Scribus 04 – 4 weeks (24 October – 20 November 2012)
Scribus 05 – 4 weeks (22 November – 19 December 2012)
Description of Residency
The Writers/Digital Media Residency is based at ArtFunkl, Manchester and runs alongside the already established Artists residency programme. It is aimed at providing a quiet, self contained place for Writers or Digital Media Artists to facilitate a period of concentrated production. Writers/Artists taking part in this residency will be able to be part of the small community of ArtFunkl if desired, but also have the option of being solitary and quiet.
Accommodation for the writers residency is in a large quiet room on the garden side of the property. The room is divided into Sleeping and Working areas, and it is very flexible how these can be arranged. For Digital Media Artists access to a digital projector can be arranged if required.
The Special Residency project is aimed at people who would like a period of calm in order to carry out a substantial body of work, but would still like to be able to dip into the vibrant city life of Manchester from time to time.
Have space and time to work on your own project.
Have the opportunity to launch a piece of work, carry out a book reading, or other promotional activity at the Open Studio event (which is an ongoing part of the ArtFunkl Artists Residency programme)
Be actively involved in making contacts and promoting your work
Have the opportunity to start dialogues with locally based contemporaries from the Manchester art world
Attend Art events in the local area.
