Artist parents/artist carers residency opportunity

25 May 2023

Deadline: June 4, 2023

PS2 is delighted to announce a call for the Artist parents/artist carers residency opportunity, supported by funds from Belfast City Council.

  • Open to: artist parents and/or artists with caring responsibilities
  • Artist fee: £2,000 (sterling) for four weeks, plus an additional £150 (sterling) to support an engagement event
  • Suggested dates for residency and engagement event: 3 July – 4 August 2023

About the residency:

PS² will host an artist parents/carers residency in their Project Space in July 2023, at the beginning of the school holidays. Although school-age children are not a prerequisite to applying, PS² wanted to identify a period that can often be particularly disruptive for an artist parent/artist carer’s practice.

The residency is designed to be open and responsive to individual artist parents/ artist carer’s needs. Therefore, in the application form, you’re invited you to explain how they might best support you, how you might use the space and time afforded by this residency and how it will support your practice.  Alongside the fee, PS² have included some additional budget should you wish (and have capacity) to host an engagement event of your choosing which is inclusive of other artist parents/artist carers.

To apply, please send the following to Jane, jane@pssquared.org by 6pm on Sunday 4 June 2023.

  • An application form
  • Your CV
  • An Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form
