SEED BED Residency

Open Call for Artists
Deadline: 7 Jan 2022



The Seed Bed Residency is a collaboration between Circus Artspace and Black Isle Permaculture & Arts (BIPA), supported by Creative Scotland. 


We are looking for a contemporary visual artist to undertake a 3 week residency in a timber, off-grid eco cabin sited in BIPA’s organic permaculture garden and smallholding in the Scottish Highlands during April 2022. 


This opportunity is open to artists, at all stages of their career, seeking to develop their practice through reflection, simple living, and new modes of research, inquiry, and production. The resident artist is also invited to engage with local artists, networks and communities. 


The Seed Bed residency opportunity is ideal for artists working in the fields of sustainable living and food production, climate crisis, and ecology, in dialogue with people, places, and ecosystems. Artists are invited to spend time on this residency considering our relationship with nature, ecology and the climate crisis; and how creativity can respond and guide us on a regenerative and sustainable pathway into the future, for both ourselves and our habitats?


Artist’s Fee: the selected artist will receive a fee of £1,500

Deadline: Friday 7 January 2022, 5pm
