In an exciting new partnership with Corridor8, the journal for contemporary art and writing in the North, we have a small bursary available for a Castlefield Gallery Associate Member to develop a response to our exhibition PIVOT: Editions.
The commissioned response can take the form of a written text – be that essay style prose, fiction, experimental writing or poetry. It is also possible to present a visual essay using either printed material or a digital screen.
The commissioned response will be shared at our first Open Table event on Tuesday 19 July alongside an invited response to the show by Manchester based writer/curator Elysia Lukoszevieze.
The bursary presents an opportunity for a Castlefield Gallery Associate Member to draw upon their own practice, creatively responding to a given show as well as present their work in a public event, alongside other creatives working in the region.
After the Open Table both responses will be published in Corridor8 and form the start of a series of contributions to the journal that explore and reflect upon the gallery’s programme.
Further details on the bursary are below,
