Open Call For Applications – Wysing Arts Centre

The over-arching theme of Wysing Arts Centre’s artistic programme during 2015 will be The Multiverse, an unverified theory within physics that proposes the potential for a set of multiple universes which together comprise everything that exists.

Aspects of the Multiverse that we will be exploring include theories in which all possible worlds exist, where the same object can appear in multiple worlds, and where fictional characters can exist as ‘entities’ within the reality we know. In addition, the phenomenon of the growing multiplicity of possible identities that we all now are capable of creating, through developments in technology, will be explored.

Across 2015, The Multiverse will act as the starting point for a series of experimental research-based residencies, artistic retreats, an artist masterclass and summer school, exhibitions, events and an experimental music festival.

We invite applications from artists wishing to be resident at our rural Cambridgeshire centre; to respond to the theme of The Multiverse and to make new work in response.
There are two residency periods:

23 March – 10 May 2015
9 November – 20 December 2015

The fee and production budget for residencies is £4,000 and onsite accomodation and studio space is provided free of charge for the duration of the residency. The deadline for applications is 12noon GMT on Monday 22 December 2014.
