PS² invites emerging or re-emerging Northern Ireland-based artists to apply for the PS² Freelands Artist Programme 2021-2022, a two-year creative and professional development programme for emerging artists funded by the Freelands Foundation. You can download the brief here.
Supported by ongoing peer learning and critique, curatorial support from the project curator, and additional mentoring, the PS² Freelands Artist Programme enables emerging artists of any age to focus on, and develop, significant new work and research. The programme also includes the realisation of an exhibition/project at PS², research trips, a symposium, visits by external curators, and the possibility to show work in a curated exhibition at the Freelands Gallery (London).
Five artists will be selected to participate in the 2021-2022 programme. They will each receive:
- £5000 fee per annum for two years
- financial support for materials/production and additional mentoring support
- travel support
- individual tailored curatorial support
- access to PS² resources and workshop space
- the full commitment of PS²
