Create are looking for an artist living in Barking & Dagenham to take part in a paid, three-month residency at The White House, a new public space for art and social activity on the Becontree Estate, from January – April 2017. The selected artist will receive a fee, production budget and a free studio for the duration of their residency and will be supported by Create to work with local people to create a new artwork. Artists are invited to respond to topics relating to the home, domesticity and suburbia. All kinds of art practices will be considered. The main requirement is for the artist to use their knowledge and insight of the borough to bring new approaches to creating art at The White House, to work with people living locally, and to present the artwork they have developed in a public context at the end of their residency.
