Artist Residency: Glasgow Women's Library

Deadline for applications: Friday 24 July 2009

Glasgow Women’s Library (GWL) seeks two 6-month part time Artist Residencies to be based within the library. The residencies offer an exciting opportunity for two artists to work with the rich resources of Glasgow Women’s Library - staff, learners, users and archive - to achieve the aims and focus of Making space: toward a public artwork for GWL. The residence opportunities are offered to develop ideas, visuals and participatory working methods that can inform GWL’s ambitions to realise a public artwork for their new premises at the Mitchell Library, Glasgow. The residencies will support the artists’ investigation of Women’s histories and representation in the Public Realm, as well as potential means of engagement and consultation with diverse constituents of GWL.
