Landscapes and Horizons Creative Residency

‘Landscapes & Horizons’ is a new fully funded group residency for five Scotland-based artists and cultural practitioners, open to people aged over 40, from refugee and other migrant backgrounds. Hosted by Cove Park in collaboration with Luminate, Scotland’s creative ageing organisation, and Cross Borders at Scottish Refugee Council.

They are providing this residency opportunity for artists and cultural practitioners aged over 40 who need space, time, care and reflection for their creative development. They are particularly keen to support applicants who have not accessed this kind of opportunity before, and who have faced barriers due to their age, care commitments and/ or asylum or immigration status/ journey.

The residency is aimed at those who were already working as artists or community organisers with a focus upon arts and cultural projects. The residency is also open to those who weren’t able to pursue their practice in their home country for fear of harassment or persecution. Your interests or practice may include, but is not limited to, visual arts, curation, theatre, dance and choreography, music, composition, song writing, craft, design, architecture, food and cultural heritage.

The residency provides a week of creative activity, workshops, and events, offering time for each resident to pursue their own interests and to take part in group projects. The residency will take place at Cove Park on Argyll’s Rosneath Peninsula. This rural hillside site is on Scotland’s west coast and is just over one hour from Glasgow by car or by public transport.

  • Landscapes & Horizons is a five-night residency which will take place from Monday 26 February to Saturday 2 March 2024.
  • The resident will receive a total award of £550, plus a travel and a materials allowance. Residents who do not have the right to work or any recourse to public funds receive the equivalent in the form of necessary equipment, courses or vouchers of their choice. Residents who have caring needs/ responsibilities can enquire about additional accommodation.
  • The residency will centre around creative activity, allowing participants to focus upon their own work and interests, and to come together with other residents to take part in creative workshops and events led by artists and former Cove Park residents.
  • Although Cove Park’s residencies are self-catering, some meals will be provided and participants in this programme will be invited to cook and eat together, along with Cove Park’s team, programme partners and workshop facilitators.
