Deadline for applications: 31 May.
The Artist Lock In, now in its fifth year, is the flagship residency produced by ArtHouse Jersey in partnership with WildWorks.
ArtHouse Jersey are currently seeking artists from all backgrounds and disciplines to apply for this inspiring experience. Facilitated by Sue Hill (Wildworks, Eden Project), artists will spend 10 days living and working together, learning from each other’s practice and responding to the natural environment.
Away from the distractions of everyday life, the Lock In encourages an atmosphere in which to explore new approaches and different styles of making. This is a supported opportunity to fill your lungs with fresh sea air, step out of your comfort zone and collaborate with artists from across the globe without the pressure of a deadline or expectation of a fully finished outcome.
For the first time, the Artist Lock In will take place at Greve De Lecq Barracks, ArtHouse Jersey’s new home. In a sheltered bay on the North coast of Jersey, Greve De Lecq Barracks will become your playground for the duration of the residency.
They are particularly interested in hearing from artists who are keen to explore what our role might be in shaping our future and how the arts can have a positive impact in a rapidly changing environment.
The Lock In is a rustic experience with most of the time spent outside making work in the landscape. Participants should be prepared to brave the elements and get dirt beneath their fingernails.
Artists are required to travel to Jersey at their own expense or at the expense of a cultural organisation of their home jurisdiction.
Dates of the 2019 Artist Lock In: 22 September – 1 October 2019 (inclusive).
Location: Greve de Lecq Barracks, Jersey, Channel Islands.
