Makers in Scotland Invited to Apply for Altermatter2

Soft Edges, mycelium bumpers for wooden furniture, Adam Davis – UK and Diaz Alisastomo – Indonesia, Altermatter1 

Applied Arts Scotland invite makers based in Scotland to apply for Altermatter2, a Scotland-Indonesia collaboration to explore experimental approaches to making, with a focus on using and adapting design processes combined with material experimentation. This collaborative opportunity will address sustainability across environment and culture through crafts, exploring new circular approaches, systems, and ways of working, supported by peer exchange and expert mentoring.

The opportunity includes an online residency focused around materials and design experimentation, where you will work with a collaborative partner from Indonesia. Subject to additional funding and outcomes from the online residency, there may also be opportunities for an in-person residency with your collaborative partner as well as for showcasing of work.

A fee of £750 will be paid to participants from Scotland for their involvement within the online residency, administered through a contract with Applied Arts Scotland. You do not have to be a Member of AAS to apply for this opportunity, but we do encourage you to consider joining our supportive community of makers which offers a range of benefits.

The programme is supported by British Council Indonesia, Playo and the CAST Foundation in Indonesia and Applied Arts Scotland.
