Paid residency for local young artist!

The GAP is delighted to announce 3 x 6-month, paid artist residencies for early career creatives aged 18 – 30.

The residencies are a key component of The Other-Wise Project, a series of creative and participatory explorations with young people that will explore, challenge and rethink the old ideas that shape contemporary education.

We’re looking for young creatives from Balsall Heath and the surrounding area to apply for this opportunity.

As a resident artist you will immerse yourself in the work that The GAP produces throughout the project, allowing that to influence your own creative practice and developing your own response to the challenges and ideas it throws up. You will work with the friendly GAP team, the young participants and with the two other resident artists, and consider your own creative process as an ‘other’ way of learning, of building resilience for an uncertain future and of effecting change.
