The Endangered Landscapes Artist Residencies

7th December 2020

Two of CCI’s key programmes, the Arts, Science and Conservation Programme (ASCP) and The Endangered Landscapes Programme (ELP) are working together on an exciting new collaboration and are delighted to announce the launch of The Endangered Landscapes Artist Residencies and Arts Prize.

The arts play a pivotal role in addressing environmental challenges and provide a compelling route into understanding how people are connected to landscape. Place-based practice in particular can often articulate connections to a landscape in entirely new ways. Both the ELP and the ASCP are keen to encourage collaborative, interdisciplinary arts practice that celebrates these landscapes and communities, and that reveal the hopes, ambitions and opportunities that come with landscape restoration.

Artists are invited to be in residence in ELP’s eight implementation landscape restoration projects throughout Europe and beyond. Expressions of Interest open on the 7th January 2021 for one month. The opportunity is open to artists with strong links to the landscapes in following countries: Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Portugal, Romania, Scotland, Turkey, Ukraine, and Wales.

Artists will be selected through a competitive two-stage process, judged against the stated criteria by the residency project team, project teams in each landscape and an external panel. Residencies will be accompanied by awards between $3,150 and $5,400 and will begin in June 2021. We look forward to receiving proposals from a wide range of artistic practice.
