Creative practitioner in Residence

Creative Practitioner In Residence

The Creative Practitioner in Residence Scheme by The School of the Arts at the University of Hull.

A new project for 2022.

This Creative Practitioner in Residence scheme is hosted by the School of the Arts at the University of Hull and is open for emerging or established artists working either in groups or alone. It provides access to studio spaces, support, and some resources for artists working across the areas of drama, film, media, and music that relate to the work of our school. The School of the Arts is a vibrant artistic community with over 30 colleagues including specialist support staff in areas such as costume, lighting, stage management, audio- and media production. Supported by a wealth of physical resources such as a fully functioning theatre (The Gulbenkian Centre), a Film Studio (The Minghella Studio), a well-equipped workshop, state-of-the art music production facilities, a media centre, and the recent 10-million-pound refurbishment of the Middleton Hall and studio complex. 

Our Support

We can offer a range of support which will be tailored to the needs of each artist or group such as:

  • Mentoring support from specialist staff;
  • Access to studio spaces and equipment for the creation of work;
  • A dedicated office space;
  • Networking opportunities; and
  • Performance spaces for the realisation of created work.

What We Expect In Return

Each residency will last between 1 and 12 months. We are keen to support artists and also provide opportunities for students and the local region through the work of the scheme. Successful applicants will be required to deliver workshops focussed on their practice for students, community groups, and local schools and colleges. A performance or creation of an artefact relating to residency could also be expected.

To Apply

We are hoping to host a number of residencies starting from January 2022 and require the following information:

  • A 500-word proposal summarising your plan for the residency that describes the type of work to be undertaken, what the aims of the project are, and the outcomes;
  • What facilities will you require access to during the residency and how would you plan to use them (500 words);
  • Any Internships you could offer; 
  • An indication of the amount of time you would have to devote to the residency which can be anywhere between 1 and 12 months;
  • A short CV outlining your professional experience and relevant qualifications;
  • A portfolio of creative works.

We particularly welcome applications from underrepresented groups in the arts.
