2 years 6 months ago

A new Artists' Residencies project has been launched in the Elan Valley as part of the Elan Links scheme

Applications are invited from visual artists for the 2018-19 Artists Residency programme in the Elan Valley, mid-Wales.  Three residencies are available – two for August-December 2018 and one for January-June 2019.  Through the arts we want to better understand, explore and engage with nature, water and issues around sustainability, as well as the rural/urban dynamic. The Artists’ Residencies aim to achieve this. 

The Elan Valley is a special place with a unique landscape, story and history. Part of the rugged Cambrian Mountains, it is a beautiful and unspoilt area, which is a haven for wildlife. It is made even more compelling by the Victorian-era dams and reservoirs which together create a wonderful, living landscape.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Friday 29 June 2018. To download the brief and application form, please visit: www.elanvalley.org.uk/residencies18-19. Alternatively, please email andrea.jones@elanvalley.org,uk or call 01597 811527.

The residencies programme is supported by the Arts Council of Wales, Elan Valley Trust, Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water and Community Arts Rhayader and District (CARAD).
