anam creative: eco collab

anam creative: eco collab, ‘land’ is part one of a two part project commissioning musicians and visual artists to collaborate and develop work concerning the Scottish environment.

 

Each collaboration will feature four musicians and two visual artists based in or within travelling distance of Glasgow city centre, where our office is. Applicants must be between the ages of 18 – 25.

Commissioned artists will be paid to work for a total of 8 hours per week following Scottish Artist Union Rates of £27 per hour.

 

This project is funded by Creative Scotland.

 

Our aims

  • to provide paid opportunities for young artists.

  • to support artists in developing their practices through collaboration.

  • to facilitate discussions for artists to gain insight into alternative disciplines.

  • to support new working relationships within the creative industries.

  • to refine and exhibit new creative work at the end of the project. 

  • to work towards a cohesive vision that will strengthen anam creative's reach and output.

  • to raise awareness of Scottish environments.

 

Essential

  • Applicants must be between the ages of 18 – 25 years old.

  • Applicants must be based in or within reasonable travelling distance to Glasgow so that they are able to do in-person collaborative work and attend all of our reflection sessions.

  • Applicants should have developed their practice to a high level and have access to sufficient equipment to create their work with - we are currently unable to provide this.

  • ​We are looking for confident, reliable, positive and open-minded creatives to join our collective and develop new interdisciplinary work together.

  • Full-time students are ineligible for this project, any current students must have completed and graduated their course by June.

Applicants from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply; we are particularly interested in applications from those from socially disadvantaged backgrounds.

Fees
Commissioned artists will be paid £27 an hour for a total of 8 hours a week over 12 weeks. This will include 6 hours of self-directed work and a 2 hour reflection session led by anam creative.

 

They will complete their final week of work in December, which will include setting up for the exhibition with the other group.

The total fee for each commissioned artist is £2,592.
