Art and Conservation, call for participants

Country:

Calling paticipants for a collaborative residency between Sail Britain's creative programme and artist and conservationist Jazz Austin.

With the health of our oceans in the spotlight, this residency opportunity will be a chance to examine what part artists can play in protecting and celebrating an increasingly threatened natural environment, and to learn more about the wildlife and ecosystems of the Scottish coastline.

The programme is open to all, both professional and amateur artists, and Jazz will be running workshops in different creative techniques throughout the week. We hope to create space in which to experiment and produce work inspired by the ocean and dramatic coastal landscapes we engage with while sailing in the islands. The sailing boat is a very special social space where resident artists can engage with each other to develop and exchange ideas. It also allows time to observe, to listen and to engage with an inaccessible environment in an intimate way.

No previous painting/drawing or sailing experience is required – just an enthusiasm to get involved!

Dates: 15-22nd June 2019

Location: Mallaig, Western Isles, sailing north to Raasay, Rona, Skye and the sea lochs.

For more information please visit the webpage and feel free to drop us a line with any questions, we're always happy to say hello!

Please note that although the deadline is the day before the residency starts, places will be allocated to suitable applicants on a first come basis.
