The residency programme at Hospitalfield provides a location which is at once connected and remote: The house, studios, gardens and courtyards of the estate are ringed by trees and overlook the North Sea just as it flows in to the Tay Estuary. This situation has a feeling of isolation and is an extremely peaceful place to work. Once off the threshold of the estate the reality is that Hospitalfield is a part of the small fishing town of Arbroath and within walking distance of useful amenities. Arbroath station is on the east coast train line running from London to Aberdeen and the direct trains to all of the main Scottish cities is what has made it, over the years, a popular holiday destination. Once much busier in the summer than it is today, the long day light hours, beautiful coast line and high percentage of sunshine hours defines this part of Scotland.
Hospitalfield’s residency programme provides a robust and collegiate structure which prioritises the opportunity to focus and aims to create a scenario in which new ideas are developed with the aim of prompting a step change in the evolution of the individual’s practice.
Applications are invited from artists who have a specific project or period of work to focus on and for whom this time will be invaluable.
Selectors for the residency programmes at Hospitalfield are looking for applicants that can demonstrate clearly what their project or focus for the residency is and what they anticipate the potential that this setting will offer them and the progression of their work.

The post Opportunity: Interdisciplinary Artist Residency at Hospitalfield Arts appeared first on Creative Carbon Scotland.
Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
