The drawing shed, in conjunction with Jordan McKenzie, are offering two Residencies for Live Art / Performance artists, partnerships or collectives. The Residencies will be based on housing estates in Walthamstow, London E17 between March and May and will be followed by a mini symposium /LiveLunch.
The drawing shed are looking for bold ideas that respond to, and engage with, the diverse communities that live on the estates. Artists will have the drawing shed’s new space LockUpNumber11 as their project base and will receive a fee of £500.
Deadline for proposals is Friday 21st February. Click here for more information on the application process.
The Residency programme is in collaboration with LADA and forms part of the drawing shed’s LiveElse[W]here project, funded by Arts Council England and London Borough of Waltham Forest.
