Outlandia: Call For Artists' Proposals
23rd September 2012
Outlandia is an off-grid, artist studio, up a steep forest track on a hillside facing Ben Nevis. The space might be used for thinking, researching, making, installing, performing, interacting. Proposals are welcome from creative practitioners based in the UK, individuals or small groups of collaborating artists who are working in disciplines including architecture, fine art, sound art, creative writing, film-making and object-making.
Whilst Outlandia is off-grid, this need not exclude practitioners working with digital technologies. London Fieldworks are looking for experimental, radical approaches to a challenging natural and working environment. They are particularly interested in proposals that engage with the tensions here around nature, industry, tourism and heritage. Residencies are for one week and all costs relating to the residency such as accommodation, food and travel, must be covered by the artist.
Apply by email with a 1-page outline on why you are interested in this opportunity, how you would address the residency, proposed dates between Nov 2012 and Sept 2013. Also include your CV and weblink to images of your work.
Deadline for residency proposal - 1 October 2012. £10 administration fee.
Apply to London Fieldworks: firstname.lastname@example.org

Outlandia is supported by an Advisory Group of local artists, residents and curators and is located in a copse of Norwegian Spruce in Glen Nevis on Forestry Commission land, at the foot of Ben Nevis in the Scottish Highlands, approx 3 miles from the town of Fort William.
Outlandia is off-grid and has no facilities.
Outlandia is currently unfunded and you will be responsible for all of your own costs including accommodation and travel. It is forbidden by the terms of our lease with The Forestry Commission to stay overnight at Outlandia.
