BALTIC and Shape launch Emergent – a new hybrid residency and support programme for early-career disabled artists with a £5k bursary.
Applications are open for disabled artists/creative practitioners in the first five years of their career to take part in a three-month residency programme that combines digital and physical elements of delivery, supported by both organisations.
Receiving an award of £5,000, the selected artist will take part in a residency where, in addition to receiving expert support and mentoring to inform their practice, they can use facilities and technical input to develop new or existing artwork. A showcasing or broadcast opportunity will be provided as part of the programme.
A package of support will also be offered to a small number of shortlisted artists.
