Celf o Gwmpas in partnership with Disability Arts Cymru is delighted to announce the successful applicants for the first ever residency programme open to disabled artists in Wales.
The four winners are:
Lou Lockwood: Imprint, a further experiment in touch memory
Dawn McIntyre: Sanguis et Capillum
Jack McClafferty: Exploring the language of landscape, people and place
Jo Munton: We are innocent when we dream
A high standard of applications were received, all coming from artists who have achieved a professional level of practice and selection was made on the basis of artistic ambition, risk-taking and experimentation.
Each of the artists will have the opportunity to spend time with ground-breaking arts organisation Celf o Gwmpas at Centre Celf in Llandrindod Wells, Powys, focusing on research, experimentation and the development of new work.
Residencies will be taking place from October 2017 to January 2018, and the successful applicants are forming part of a national and international residency programme supporting disabled artists working in a wide variety of art forms. Each artist will receive a bursary, accommodation and shared studio facilities at Centre Celf as well as advice and guidance on career development and an in-residence group exhibition in March 2018.
Celf o Gwmpas continues to generate and create through an international pioneering training and workshop programme, gallery exhibitions, screenings and performances, working towards social inclusion, inspiring artistic ambition and providing a rescource for the wider community.
