Call for artists

Creative Fellowships 2020-2021: Artists Callout

Arts & Cul­ture Uni­ver­si­ty of Exeter release the artist call-out for third and final 2020/2021 Cre­ative Fel­low­ship with The Play­ful University.

Arts and Culture University of Exeter is inviting applications from freelance creative practitioners for a Creative Fellowship running in the next academic year (September 2020-July 2021). This will be a 4-5 week exploratory placement, working in an interdisciplinary context. The Creative Fellowship is open to practitioners of any artform, including visual, digital, sound and performing arts, craft, design, film, literature and music.

Rather than being a residency, this opportunity is described as a placement. The creative practitioner is a peer, opening up new approaches and conversations with the University hosts while developing and enriching their own creative practice. This scheme encourages mutually-beneficial exchange, where both the host and the creative practitioner gain new insights and potential ways of working.

This callout is for the Creative Fellowship that will be hosted by The Playful University, led by staff at the College of Medicine and Health, St Luke’s campus Exeter, and Technology Enhanced Learning, Penryn campus, Cornwall.

The total budget per Creative Fellowship is £5,000 (inclusive of VAT) on a freelance basis, to include practitioner’s fee, travel and accommodation, production costs and documentation. In the uncertain context of the Covid-19 pandemic, we will adapt as required to remote working.

Applications close on Monday 6 July 2020. Interviews on Friday 17 July 2020.
