We are currently seeking expressions of interest from creative practitioners for the Art and Therapeutic Design (ATD) programme for the new Department of Clinical Neuroscience (DCN) hospital in Little France, Edinburgh. These exciting opportunities include three 12 month fellowships and a 12 month artist residency.
Deadline: 5pm on Wednesday 9th November 2016.
- Artist Residency
This is a fantastic opportunity for a contemporary artist (or artists) to research, develop and deliver a 12 month residency project which could include an exhibition, workshop, digital production, performance, event or publication. The focus for the activities or interventions should be on building meaningful collaborative practice with community projects in the geographical vicinity of the Little France Campus with particular attention to those representing minority or hard to reach groups.
We are looking for an artist (or artists) with a track record of innovative socially engaged practice who can demonstrate confidence, motivation, vision and creative aptitude for developing arts within healthcare settings and with minority or disadvantaged communities. There will be scope for the selected artist to pursue personal interests in the choice of specific communities or themes they explore.
A total sum of £38,000 ex VAT has been allocated inclusive of all fees and expenses for this residency. This is broken down as artist residency fees of £28,000 (140 days @ £200) plus a materials budget of £10,000 to cover production or event delivery costs.
As part of the ATD 19.1 residency programme there will also be access, via discussion and approval, to a shared budget for mentoring, discussions and dissemination/publication.

- Fellowships- DCN
The fellowships are a fantastic opportunity to promote and showcase the working activity and research interests currently found within the DCN through a programme of dynamic art/science commissions. Innovation and design development using current research practices is key to each fellowship within the programme. This project seeks to build relationships between artists, staff and external research partners to demonstrate best practice and contribute to on-going dialogue with respect to the benefits of creative practice in clinical environments.
The opportunities are:
– Language & Cognition Fellowship
– Music Fellowship
– Design Fellowship
The three DCN fellowships are a unique opportunity designed to build relationships and creative capacity between the hospital and wider city communities over a 12 month period. It is anticipated that much of the development work will take place off site however we expect both temporary and permanent outcomes to find a place both within the existing DCN at Western General and/or the new building at Little France.
Each fellowship is valued at £40,000 ex VAT including all materials and expenses. This is broken down into fellowship fees and a materials budget to cover production or event delivery costs. This is based on a fee allocation of £30,000 (150 days @ £200 per day) and £10,000 for support, materials and expenses.
As part of the project there will also be access, via discussion and approval, to a shared budget for mentoring, discussions, and for dissemination/publication.
