Street By Street- Digital Artist Residency





Digital Artist Residency

Without precedent and with immediate effect, society is endeavouring to understand, adapt, and evolve to a whole new concept: Social Isolation.

In this present world-wide crisis - where physical contact, day to day life, and community interaction is severely restricted - individuals are finding themselves in the new and startling reality of navigating a world of rapidly evolving social norms.

 Street By Street aims to explore the personal and social geography of our neighbourhood. It seeks out creative, non-physical ways to navigate human connectivity and kindness in an effort to create a better picture of our community, to connect with those around us despite barriers, and to build stronger links for the future.

 We are interested in proposals that, over a two-month period, remotely explore the concept of connecting people 'street by street' through creativity and innovation. The selected applicant will produce a body of work that investigates geographical areas in the context of the social and personal topography of those who live there.

Submissions are open worldwide and to arts collectives or researchers - anyone exploring the boundaries of art, technology, and social engagement.


• The selected artist will be given a virtual studio in Artlink's @87 digital gallery to document their exploration and offer a glimpse into their process for the duration of the residency.

• The Artist will be limited geographically to exploring any of the streets in a one-mile radius of our physical gallery space at 87 Princes Avenue, Hull, HU5 3PQ. We are interested in how connections can be made virtually that link together a street or community.

• The artist's response should focus on social-engagement and explore the connectivity and capacity of current digital tools and social platforms, whilst also exploring activities that do not exclude those within our communities who may not have access or the resources required to communicate in this way.

• The residency duration will be over two months, from the 27th April - 27th June, with Artlink producers supporting the artist remotely through the process.

Artist fee

£2,500 - This includes development and delivery over the two-month residency period and any materials. 

*This figure is inclusive of any VAT the artist may incur. The artist is responsible for their own tax and National Insurance arrangements. No additional travel expenses are available.

Open Call for entries- Space Between Us




Space Between Us 

A digital exhibition of work exploring themes of human interaction and outdoor space.

Showing internationally Friday 24th April - 26th June 2020.

50% proceeds of sales will be donated to the worldwide Coronavirus Relief Fund, 50% proceeds to artists.


The exhibition

Suddenly and rapidly people have adapted to being indoors. In a present world-wide crisis, where physical movement is restricted, the idea and purpose of outdoor space is thrown into focus. Connecting with each-other is still possible through different channels, but right now, not in physical space.

This digital exhibition, presented during an unprecedented time of near international lock-down, takes the viewer out of confinement to look through the lenses of a group of artists, each who have produced a significant body of work capturing ways that space shapes and is shaped by human interactions.

Square Peg Bursary, Artlink Hull




An open submission bursary opportunity for a visual artist based in the North of England who identifies as being disabled

Deadline: Friday 16th February 2018 at 5PM.

Square Peg is Artlink Hull’s wide-ranging disability and diversity arts programme, commissioned and supported by Hull UK City of Culture 2017. The final Square Peg project of 2017 is an open submission bursary opportunity for an artist based in the North of England who identifies as being a disabled person. The selected artist or partnership will be funded and supported to create new work for a solo exhibition to be held at Artlink Hull in summer 2018. The Square Peg Bursary is intended to provide an opportunity for a disabled artist to create new work for exhibition which they may otherwise be unable to realise.

A shortlist from the submissions will be drawn up by a panel with personal and professional experience in art and disability including artists, curators and critics. Shortlisted applicants may be invited to interview before the selection of the final artist, for which communication and/or transportation support can be provided.

The bursary is £3,500 for the selected artist’s time and materials/resources for the work/s to be created. Additional finance is available for communications and transportation support for the selected artist during the production process as well as for the realisation of the final exhibition.

Interested artists should submit their outline proposal for the bursary opportunity along with details on their artistic development and supporting information via the portal on CuratorSpace here. If you require application information or your submission to be in an alternate accessible format, please contact us by emailing or via telephone: 01482 345104 to discuss your needs.

This project is funded by Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and supported by Shape Arts.
