Open Call: Artist Residency Opportunity: Robert Owen 250 3 month p/t residency for an artist, April to June 2020. Fee: £3000 (+ £500 for materials) Deadline for applications: 20 March 2020 Interviews: Early April

The Arts Council of Wales in partnership with the Welsh Government, Robert Owen Society and Museum, Powys County Council, Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn Town Council and Oriel Davies, are working together to support innovative artist engagement with the legacy of Robert Owen in Newtown to celebrate his 250th anniversary. The project aims to open up Robert Owen’s life and some of the sites, stories and objects relating to him to fresh interpretation. It is envisaged that any subsequent commission would help us to

engage with places and the histories that shaped them.

 

This residency seeks to listen effectively to responses and stories that Robert Owen sparks and to find new ways of sharing those stories with others, so that a decision can be made as to whether or not a new large scale commemoration should be commissioned and what that commission might look like. It should be participatory and meaningful to all

communities who live in and visit Newtown, now and in the future.

 

Proposals for this part time 3-month residency May – July 2020 are now invited. We expect the artist to work 14 days on this project. We welcome proposals from artists based in Wales and beyond who have experience of working in a social context. They can be working in any media. We particularly welcome artists who have experience of social reforms, cooperative movements, and challenging inequalities. Experience of working with outlined groups is desirable. The artist should demonstrate a collaborative approach, with experience of working creatively with a variety of groups and communities. The artist must be confident in producing and presenting work to non-arts audiences and members of the public. We would welcome proposals from a collaborative partnership (although please

note the artist fee is fixed).

 

We are looking for applications that resonate with Robert Owen’s aim 'to promote the well-being and happiness of every man, woman and child without regard ... (to)...sect, party, country and colour’.
