Winchburgh Residency Public Art Project 2022

Winchburgh Development Ltd. (WDL) in partnership with Winchburgh Community Development Trust (WCDT) and West Lothian Council (WLC) seeks to appoint an artist/craft maker for a studio based residency opportunity in the rapidly growing town of Winchburgh.

This opportunity is for a community practice based artist / craft maker to participate in a studio based residency in which a creative practitioner spends a sustained period of time in Winchburgh. The purpose of the residency is multifaceted and will be reflective of the skills of the selected artists; to develop their work, create an arts/craft based skills transfer programme with local people to develop a start-up craft enterprise based on local heritage, local sites, design and or where possible, the use of locally available materials. The residency aims to support the appointed artist to spend equal amounts of time developing their own practice as well as offering community engagement sessions based on their own skill set.

The total project budget is: £34,000 and is non-negotiable. It includes all artist fees associated with practice and design time, studio hire costs, engagement activities, materials, any planning permissions if appropriate, fabrication and installation costs, for example for any exhibitions and any other fees associated with the project.
