The Cornwall Workshop is a week-long intensive residential workshop for artists, curators and writers based in Cornwall and the South West, organised by CAST and hosted at Kestle Barton on the Lizard peninsula.
The next Cornwall Workshop will be led by Elizabeth Price. The workshop offers a space in which to explore three ideas that are embedded in Price’s work and in her practice as an artist: assembly, archive and place.
Price describes her interest in: ‘The assembly of different kinds of things: the creation of heterogeneous assemblies, such as the ‘exquisite corpse’ of Surrealism, as well as bricolage, collage, literary montage or cut-up, and certain kinds of concrete poetry.’ She imagines how one might approach the archive not only by intervening in it but also by inventing stories and images that will ‘summon into the visible the contours of things permanently erased’. During the workshop week she proposes to draw upon local cultural and political histories and their manifestations in local archives and collections and use the ideas of assembly and archive ‘to disassemble stable or singular ideals of place’.

Who can apply?
The workshop is designed to provide opportunities for artists, curators and writers resident in Cornwall and the South West. Candidates from outside the region may apply if they have a special interest in and relationship with the South West and have knowledge and experience that could be of particular relevance to the workshop.

The workshop will accommodate 12 participants selected from the open call.
Closing date for applications: midnight Sunday 16 January 2022
