Visual artists from Egypt can apply for a three-month self-directed residency at CCA: Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow, Scotland from July 1 to September 30, 2018. The deadline for applications is December 15.
CCA is Glasgow’s hub for the arts with a year-round program of cutting-edge exhibitions, film, music, literature, spoken word, festivals, Gaelic and performance. Residents may use CCA’s Creative Labs room for screenings, workshops and critiques, and CCA provides marketing and technical support for these events. They are welcome to use CCA’s equipment, including its dance floor, projectors, sound kit and lights to experiment on their own, and may open the doors to the public at the end of the residency and discuss or share their activity. CCA staff also offer feedback on work when invited to do so. CCA has a small artist’s flat on its third floor, which is where the resident will be accommodated, and Mophradat will cover their flight to Glasgow, monthly stipend, a studio if needed, visa, and travel insurance.
