The ICS Artist-in-residence program allows artists to work in the context of a different country and culture.
The Artist in Residence Programme provides artists with the space to create new works, experiment with innovative ideas and research new and different ways of making. Artists are encouraged to explore all our facilities to open up new possibilities and directions for the contemporary ceramicist.
The program is open to all artists who wish to work independently on their own projects. Artists may use the residency to accomplish a specific project or to work in a creative and supportive atmosphere alongside other international ceramic artists.
On average the are up to ten artists in residence at the ICS at any one time. There are plenty of opportunities to interact with the other artists but enough space to be quiet and reflective.
Making an application for the Artist in Residence Programme: There is no application deadline and applications will be considered throughout the year. We require slides, photographs or digital images on cd or by email, accompanyied by a current CV (Resumé) and biography. A brief outline of your intended work during your residency would be helpful for us to consider your application. Please give us an indication of your preferred dates for your residency.
