Regen Art Lab offers a residency opportunity for an artist to collaborate with clean energy experts.
Regen is a not-for-profit centre of energy expertise and market insight whose mission is to transform our energy system for a zero-carbon future.
The Regen Art Lab (RAL) is a new programme for interdisciplinary collaborations to take place between our clean energy experts and artists from underrepresented backgrounds in the energy sector (ie. BIPOC, ethnic minorities, people from low-income backgrounds, and the LGBTQ+ community), to create innovative visions of our low carbon future.
The RAL Residency 1 will take place online from October 11th until December 17th 2021 for an artist to produce new work(s) that engagingly relate to the issue of decarbonising how we heat our homes and businesses. There is no centralised or like-for-like solution, making this the greatest challenge the UK faces to become a net zero carbon economy.
The artist will be an early career practitioner or recent arts graduate (up to three years out of education), with an interest in and/or some familiarity with issues exploring our climate emergency and wider societal transformation.
We are open to consider various preferred mediums, and particularly keen to hear from:
• Visual artists, digital artists and graphic designers
• Renewable energy artists, or more general installation artists
• Computer programming coders and creative media technologists with an interest in immersive technologies
Visual artists who are interested in working with data are especially encouraged to apply.
The resulting work will be exhibited on our digital platform, in the University of Plymouth’s Sustainability Centre, and shared with our extensive networks of cultural and industry partners.
Regen will provide:
• An artist fee of £1500 (15h a week commitment)
• Budget for materials of £300
• A digital residency site
• Technical support in achieving the aims of the online residency
• Support and promotion of the artist and their work through our networks
For more information on the residency, and details on how to apply please visit our website here: https://www.regen.co.uk/regen-art-lab-residency/
Deadline: 19th September 2021
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.
