In 2019 Cove Park will award a minimum of three funded Visual Arts Residencies of between one to three months each for UK based artists. With support from the Bridge Awards, Cove Park will also offer a four-week residency for an early-career visual artist based in Scotland. The residencies will take place during May to September 2019, within this period residency dates are negotiable. The residency programme provides the time and support for artists to focus exclusively upon their own practice. The emphasis is upon research, experimentation and the development of new work. The visual artists will be part of a changing group of national and international residents specialising in a wide variety of art forms. All of the artists are invited to take part in a series of informal studio presentations, talks, screenings and dinners organised by Cove Park throughout the summer programme. Artists may also have the opportunity to contribute to ‘Hands-On Cove Park’ a new public educational and participatory programme of events and activities. The facilities and resources available include self-catering accommodation, private studio, communal workspace and equipment, Resident’s Fee (for one month) of £1,700 and £150 materials allowance.
