Collectivism Residency




Haarlem Artspace is seeking 5 individuals to join us for our Spring
project ‘Collectivism’ which involves a four-day residency and
one-day conference bringing people together for an exchange
of ideas on the themes of collectivism, resilience and
collaboration. The one-day conference Resilience through
Collectivism will be the second Derbyshire Creative Heritage
conference and is in partnership with Junction Arts.

Haarlem Artspace provides quality, dedicated studio space for
contemporary artists, writers and other creative businesses
alongside a public programme of cutting-edge exhibitions, talks
and events designed to engage and inspire. The residency invites
five artists, writers, curators or researchers to join us in the space for
four days plus the final conference day. This will be an opportunity
to join our studio holders and associates and guests from Instituto
Procomum in Brazil, our partners on the British Council’s Developing
Inclusive and Creative Economies programme for five days of
dynamic activity. The residency is jointly facilitated and co-curated
by artist Alice Gale-Feeny and artist and Haarlem Artspace
Director, Olivia Punnett.

Our aims are to demystify artistic and collaborative working and
encourage debate, reconsidering rural contemporary arts and the
experiences of resilience through collectivism. Participants will
engage in activities exploring how the collective multidisciplinary
studio experience invigorates an individual’s practice. Work will be
documented using writing, drawing and digital recording and will
be shared on a new digital platform following the residency.
Haarlem Artspace (within Haarlem Mill) is based in Wirksworth, a
market town on the edge of the Peak District National Park that
once had a thriving lead mining and quarrying industry. The town
has an unusually large artistic and creative population, in part due
to the 25-year history of its annual Wirksworth arts festival, which
now attracts more than 4000 visitors each year. There is a distinct
community ethos here, and the town is very much a creative hub
with a strong sense of place.
Activities undertaken on the residency can include anything the
individual would like to work on within the spirit of the themes. This
is an opportunity to share your work with other people and work in
the context of a vibrant shared-studio space. You may equally
have a specific project that you want to carry out over the
week. We would like one of the participants to document the
