Digitally connecting artists from across the world…

17 November 2020 – 21 November 2020

Calling all artists! Theatre-makers. Dancers. Filmmakers. Writers. Visual artists. Musicians. Designers. Story-tellers…

ArtHouse Jersey is seeking established and emerging artists from all backgrounds and practices to apply for an inspiring five days of creative workshops facilitated remotely by Sue Hill (Wildworks, Eden Project). This new virtual retreat will support artists to re-engage with their practice and explore new approaches to making work, particularly in light of the challenges associated with the pandemic.

Over the last few months our lives have been impacted in immeasurable ways. This is an opportunity to come together in a safe environment and use the tools and platforms that are currently available to us to collaborate with artists without the pressure of a deadline or expectation of a fully finished outcome. Artists will be taken through a programme of fast paced exercises and activities designed to motivate, engage and reawaken your creative muscles.

This is a virtual creative retreat and so participants will need to have access to the internet and a safe working environment. Artists will be required to commit approximately five hours a day to the retreat although not all of this will be contact time with the facilitation team. The retreat will utilise digital platforms such as Zoom to scaffold communication but there will be lots of time dedicated to practically making work, exploring your local environment and getting your hands dirty.

We welcome artists of all disciplines and backgrounds. You must be over the age of 18 and professionally committed to your craft. We particularly welcome applications from artists who regularly present work to an audience either through performance, exhibition, showcase or targeted community outreach. We ask for artists to be open minded and have a generous attitude towards working with others.

Interested artists are asked to apply by filling out the following short ArtHouse Jersey Virtual Creative Retreat 2020 and sending up to four examples of their work (as digital files) by email to Francesca Duncan (francesca@arts.je) by midnight on 12 October 2020.
