MEANTIME provides time and space for practitioners to test ideas, to develop and produce new work, and a particular context to work within. The project is focused on the process of artistic production, to enable and sustain developments in artistic practice rather than to reproduce known processes and results. Residencies span a calendar month and conclude with an event and discussion, and a short period of public exhibition.
MEANTIME residencies evolve through a process of dialogue and are most suited to artists whose practice is ideas-led with a commitment to artistic and critical enquiry within their field of interest. The criteria for selection is purposefully open with project proposals accepted from those with clear aims and strong ideas, an evident quality of interest and a determined line of enquiry, a high level of exploration and experimentation, and that seek to engage members of the public and arts communities.
Artists, groups and curators are invited to email the Programme Director for information about current opportunities, and should include background information about their practice and links to relevant websites.
