Opportunity: Visual Arts in Rural Communities (VARC) residency

Each resident artist develops a body of work for exhibition at the end of the residency and engages with individuals and groups from the area and further afield through workshops, open studio days, artists’ talks and other events.

VARC looks for artists who feel that twelve months spent living in an isolated rural location will significantly benefit their practice and who enjoy contact with people and want to be part of a community.

Applications are now welcomed for residencies October 2016 – September 2017 and October 2017 – September 2018. The deadline for applications is 8th January 2016.
