Watershed & MAYK: Winter Residencies

This opportunity is open to creative practitioners (from or based in the UK), of any discipline, career stage and background, who have ideas for artistic projects that explore technology and climate breakdown.

The programme is co-supported by MAYK, producers of brilliant work like SESSION and Mayfest. MAYK collaborate with artists and audiences to make exciting things happen in unusual ways. Together we will offer a supportive space, time and freedom to get your idea off the ground.

We have three residencies available – each one comes with a structured programme, work space at the Pervasive Media Studio, a network of peers, plus financial, technical and critical support. You will have dedicated help from a Watershed Producer and Creative Technologist plus access to the skills, expertise and networks of MAYK.

The programme will take place in Winter 2019/20 and we’re flexible about how you structure your time. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop and share ideas, to meet incredible people, to imagine, make and think.

Practitioners will be based at Watershed’s Pervasive Media Studio. You will become part of our community of over 150 artists, creative companies, engineers, academics, scientists, technologists and tinkerers, who work on new and emerging ideas. Ideas span gaming, projections, location-based media, city intervention, connected objects, tangible interfaces and new forms of performance. Some are cultural, some are commercial. Run in partnership with the University of the West of England and the University of Bristol, the Studio has a great workspace, an open ethos and a can-do attitude.

We welcome applications from BAME, LGBTQI, Deaf and disabled practitioners, because they are under represented in the programme.

A bursary of £2,700 (tax inclusive) plus a £500 production budget plus Producer and Creative Technologist support.
