Aberystwyth Arts Centre
UK United Kingdom
Aberystwyth Arts Centre’s Artists’ Residencies project has successfully launched its first year, in the new Thomas Heatherwick designed studios. The call is now out for artists to apply for further residencies. These residencies, supported by Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, provide the chosen UK artists with an opportunity to spend three or six months in Aberystwyth concentrating on their work. Award winning Aberystwyth Arts Centre is Wales’ largest arts centre and recognised as a 'national flagship for the arts'.
It has a wide-ranging artistic programme, both producing and presenting, across all art forms including drama, dance, music, visual arts, applied arts, film, new media, and community arts and is recognised as a national centre for arts development.
Aberystwyth Arts Centre welcome over 650,000 visitors a year, including over 100,000 attendances for performing arts and events featuring local, national and international work, 236,000 for
exhibitions and over 100,000 for our unique
community arts and education programme.
In 2000 the Arts Centre completed a major £4.3 million redevelopment and are currently undertaking an additional £1.75 million development which will add an artists and creative industries studios complex as well as dance studios and performance spaces which will be the base for a new major artists in residence programme. This will give Aberystwyth Arts Centre a range of facilities unrivalled throughout much of the UK.
The Arts Centre is a department of Aberystwyth University, and sits at the heart of the university's campus, with stunning views over the town of Aberystwyth and along the coastline of Cardigan Bay.
The details and application form are on Aberystwyth Arts Centre’s website (www.aber.ac.uk/artscentre) , or please email firstname.lastname@example.org for these. The deadline for the next selection meeting is 14 November 08.
