Invitation to Apply for British Council Residency with Mexican Textile Makers in Scotland

The British Council and Applied Arts Scotland are inviting proposals from Scottish designer/makers to take part in a textiles-focused Crafting Futures residency in Scotland during September 2019 working with Mexican textile makers.

The residency will be split across two sites in Scotland: Ness on the Isle of Lewis in the Western Isles; and Braemar in Royal Deeside, north east Scotland and will incorporate studio visits and workshop developmental time to work on a collaborative co-creation project.

The aim of this residency is for creative exploration, first and foremost, achieved through co-creation of object(s).

Crafting Futures is a global British Council programme spanning over 10 countries and in 2019 the Crafting Futures Mexico programme will be expanded to include this Scotland-based residency delivered in partnership with Applied Arts Scotland.

A separate call will be issued soon for participants in a Mexico 2019 residency, taking place in Oaxaca, Mexico during November 2019, and you are welcome to apply to take part in one or both residencies. Selection for each residency will take place separately, and applicants may be selected for one or both opportunities.

Full details of the programme and how to apply can be downloaded below, if you have any difficulties doing this please email and request a copy.

Deadline for applications:  4pm Wednesday 24 July 2019.
