Beinghuman is interested in innovative, cross discipline work with an inter connected ethos, that examines environmental or humanitarian issues & embeds creative ways of reinterpreting traditional wisdom for the modern world. Work that explores what it means to be human, right here, right now.

The residency incorporates master classes with beinghuman's founder, artist Gaynor O'Flynn. During the residency participants examine not only their creative practice but also their business, ethics & how to create a sustainable model for their work & life.

Each applicant must submit one work in any medium to form part of the being summer exhibition. Applicants also need to submit one idea to lead one afternoon session. It can be a workshop, happening, screening or talk.
