Mini-Residency at The Ecology Centre, Fife

Fife Contemporary, in partnership with The Ecology Centre, Kinghorn, is offering a short artist residency in 2022.

We wish to appoint a visual artist or maker to undertake a mini-residency at the Ecology Centre by Kinghorn Loch in Fife. Following familiarisation with the Centre’s values, work and the people involved, the artist/maker will devise and deliver a collaborative creative outcome. This will have the aims of:

  • enhancing staff, volunteer and visitor experience of the Centre’s natural environment in a new way through art;
  • attracting new visitors (especially families).

The Artist/Maker
The artist/maker’s practice will demonstrate an interest in, and knowledge of, current environmental issues. They will have experience of working within community settings.

Structure and Timeline
The mini-residency will operate in two phases – 4 days in March 2022 & 10 days April-June 2022.

July 2022
Deliver physical outcome for July launch in collaboration with the Ecology Centre Manager.

Artist/Maker’s Fee
£4,000 + travel expenses

£1,000 (it is envisaged that circular economy principles, using local waste streams and a light touch on the environment, will minimise workshop and outcome costs but further material costs may be negotiated).
