Applications are invited for two Research Residencies in Art Writing.

The Residencies, each lasting one month, are supported by the School of Art at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) and Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.

The first residency will be in April 2015, and the second in November 2015.

About the Research Residencies in Art Writing

ECA’s mission is to promote critical inquiry through scholarly research, learning, teaching and education in creative practice.

Within this context, the Research Residencies in Art Writing demonstrate the School of Art's commitment to practice-based research.

They offer the opportunity for two individuals to focus intensively on their own work for a one-month period.

The Residencies are open to national and international, emerging and established art writers, working in an expanded field.

Successful applicants will be invited to participate in a public 'in-conversation' event with Maria Fusco, Chancellor's Fellow at ECA, and to deliver a lecture and one day's teaching during the period of the residency.

Each residency provides:

  • An apartment in Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop
  • Stipend of £1,000
  • Return travel expenses to Edinburgh
