Artist Residency, Jan-March 2016
PEAK & Brecon Beacons National Park

PEAK develops opportunities for contemporary art in the Black Mountains, Wales for the benefit of the region’s artists, communities and visitors.

This Artist Residency will support an artist to live and work in the Black Mountains for six weeks during winter 2016, responding to the distinct environment – its history, ecology and culture – in order to produce new work, which will be accessible to the public.

The residency is supported by the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority (BBNPA), which ‘believes that this project has the potential to provide an alternative view of some of the major conservation issues in the area.’

The residency will take place between January – March 2016 and there is flexibility for the artist to complete a six-week block or to split up the six weeks over this period.

Professional artists at any stage in their career are eligible to apply from Wales, the UK and European Union countries.

The artist will be selected on the strength of their work, their enthusiasm for the residency and their desire to extend their practice within the rural context of the Black Mountains.

The Artist Residency is funded by the BBNPA’s Sustainable Development Fund, the Arts Council of Wales and the Morel Trust.

The residency offers the following:
·      £5,500 artist fee inclusive of materials, production costs and all expenses
·      ‘Twizzy’ electric car for the duration of the residency
·      A dedicated studio space in Llangynidr, Powys
·      Artist accommodation at Cae’r Hendre self-catering cottage, Llangynidr
·      Practical support and promotion from PEAK staff

The deadline for applications is 10am, Monday 27th July 2015
