The fifth Stuart Hall Library Artist Residency is open for applications.
The residency is a collaboration between the Stuart Hall Foundation and iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) with support from Arts Council England. It is a funded opportunity for an artist based in UK to be in residence at iniva’s Stuart Hall Library over a three-month period from September to December 2021. The selected artist will receive a total sum of £4,500 and given support to pursue their research in the library.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of Professor Stuart Hall’s arrival in Britain from Jamaica in 1951. In commemoration, the Stuart Hall Foundation is organising a year long programme of events, residencies, podcasts and commissioned works of art and writing that will explore the contemporary significance of Stuart’s work and ideas, particularly their relevance to increasingly urgent debates around culture, race, and identity.
The deadline for applications is midnight on Wednesday 14th July 2021.
