In partnership with Acme, we are pleased to open applications for Acme’s Mind the Gap Residency, to take place in London from July to September 2023.
Hosted by Acme as part of their 50th anniversary year, the residency is intended for a Finnish or Finland-based artist facing additional barriers to their artistic practice, and whose practice is aligned to – and would benefit from attendance and participation in – this year’s Res Artis conference, Mind the Gap: Designing residencies for everyone.
As part of our commitment towards minimising the environmental impact of their activity, ‘slow travel’ is encouraged as part of the residency.
Hosted by Acme, in partnership with University College London (UCL), Mind the Gap: Designing residencies for everyone will bring the international artist residency community together in the UK for the very first time, celebrating the 30th anniversary of Res Artis and 50 years of Acme.
This year’s event will help chart a future for impactful residency opportunities, with a focus on optimism and practical working solutions for issues facing the sector. Taking place in London with live-streamed sessions, Mind the Gap: Designing residencies for everyone will explore our post-pandemic and increasingly fragmented world. The event will propose co-creation and collaboration as solutions to shared obstacles faced globally by residency providers and the artists they host.
The Mind the Gap residency is intended for an artist whose practice aligns with the conference’s key themes:
