Where: Nottingham, Primary

Dates: 6 – 10 November 2017

Application Deadline: Monday 18 September, 12 noon

We are delighted to announce a fantastic opportunity for artists to be part of a multi disciplinary residency held at Primary and in partnership with UKYA and European partners BJCEM. This residency is aimed at artists with an interest in how we choose to work with others and across disciplines to produce art; and will encourage participants to discuss and experiment with different ways of working, to ask what it is to collaborate, and to test out speculative ideas together.

Housed in the spaces at Primary, artists will participate in this intensive micro-residency structure, involving presentations, crits, workshops, ‘go see’ visits, and a public event. Through the residency, you will have the opportunity to interrogate collaboration and interdisciplinarity in relation to your work, with input from artists involved in the Primary programme, as well as with curators and staff at partner organisations.


Artists must be aged 18–30 (on or by Monday 18 September 2017) and be allowed to work in the UK at the time of making an application. We are looking for a broad range of artists who have a commitment to developing their practice, and who seek dialogue and engagement with the wider international contemporary arts and cultural sector.

The Primary programme is focused on contemporary visual arts, with a particular interest in how this overlaps with other disciplines such as performing arts, spoken work or dance. Therefore we are keen to receive applications from a range of disciplines. Applicants should familiarise themselves with past programming and be able to demonstrate how working within the context of this programme will be beneficial to their work.
