MAKING IT – Studio Opportunities

MAKING IT – Studio Opportunities

Making Space has received an Arts Council England grant for MAKING IT, a craft project which aims to reveal the process and relationship between the craft of hand and mind, between object and word and through learning and making. MAKING IT aims to demonstrate that craft is the tool to investigate wider ideology, which is active, participatory and implicit in every day lives and in creative development. MAKING IT is a collaborative project with Alice Kettle, the Centre for Real-World Learning at the University of Winchester and Hampshire County Council.

As the first part of this project, Making Space is offering two rent-free studios for one year valued at £2,400 per studio. Successful applicants will also receive £1,000 for materials to support research and development. The residencies are suitable for emerging makers who want to experiment or fuse different techniques with new materials; to be open to collaborations, gain from critical dialogue with other partners and reach new audiences. Selected makers will be expected to explore and address how their practice links to the key aims of the MAKING IT project.

The deadline for applications: Wednesday 4th July 2012

For more information please download the application pack from www.makingspace.org or email admin@makingspace.org or call 023 92472491.
