Wyre artist residencies coming soon

People, Place & Conversation

Wyre Council in partnership with LeftCoast are offering five artist residencies for Wyre based contemporary artists. The residencies offer a unique opportunity for artists to develop their own art practice in some of Wyre?s most inspiring locations over a three month period.

The residencies will be hosted in different places around the borough and the commissions will be focussed around people and place. It will be an opportunity for artists to reveal the stories of the everyday and unearth some of the hidden gems of the borough.

We are looking for artists from any art form and the group of selected artists will be invited to bring together their resulting projects in a final showcase.

We are also interested in hearing about your ideas around starting up an Artist Network for Wyre. Do you think Wyre Artists need one? If so how can we help?

If you are an artist in the area and want us to keep you informed about these opportunities simply send 200 words about your practice along with your postcode and contact details to?

Samara.Stott@wyre.gov.uk or call Wyre Council?s Arts & Events Team on 01253 887369/887561

Closing date for submissions is 29 June 2015.

Residencies to take place from July to October 2015.
