Feral and Dunoon Burgh Hall are collaborating on a new outdoor arts residency aimed at Scotland based artists interested in developing outdoor or site-specific projects responding to landscape.

Both Feral and Dunoon Burgh Hall have a track record of programming and producing dynamic artistic work for outdoor contexts.  This collaboration stems from an interest in stimulating resources for artists to cultivate and present artistic work that happens out-with the limits of physical buildings and offers a lens to re-imagine public space.

This residency will take place in September 2022 and is open to individual artists or collectives interested in exploring, researching and testing creative projects designed to be experienced in the landscape.  You can be working within any form of contemporary arts including performance, dance, live art, sound or visual arts.

This opportunity is funded by Creative Scotland.

Offer: The selected artist will receive:

*A fee of £4500 for artists and their collaborators to spend on residency preparation, research and delivery.
*A materials budget of £500.
*Accommodation, Travel and Per Diems whilst in Dunoon.
*Additional Access costs (as applicable) to undertake the residency.
*1 Week Residency Base Space at Dunoon Burgh Hall during the weeks beginning either Mon 5th or Mon 25th September 2022.
*3 Mentoring Sessions with an Outdoor Arts Mentor of your choosing.
*Producing support from Feral to undertake the residency and investigate routes for further development of the project.
*Opportunity to share your research with local audiences.  There is no expectation that there will be a public facing outcome to your residency, however, there is an invitation to share information on your project. This could take the form of a work in progress presentation, a talk or discussion, sharing of research, a filmed work or a different kind of event or contribution proposed by the artist.

Applications should be returned by email to weareferal@outlook.com by Thurs 23rd June 2022 at 12noon. Applicants will be notified on the result by Mon 11th July 2022.
