PS² – OPEN CALL – artist parents/artist carers residency – closing 18 June

  • Open to: artist parents and/or artists with caring responsibilities
  • Fee: £2,000 for four weeks, plus an additional £150 to support an engagement event
  • Deadline: Sunday 18 June 2023, 6pm
  • Suggested dates for residency and engagement event: 3 July – 4 August 2023

PS² will host an artist parents/carers residency in our Project Space in July 2023, at the beginning of the school holidays. Although school-age children are not a prerequisite to applying, we wanted to identify a period that can often be particularly disruptive for an artist parent/artist carer’s practice.

The residency is designed to be open and responsive to individual artist parents/ artist carer’s needs. Therefore, in the application form, we invite you to tell us about how we might best support you, how you might use the space and time afforded by this residency and how it will support your practice. Alongside the fee, we have included some additional budget should you wish (and have capacity) to host an engagement event of your choosing which is inclusive of other artist parents/artist carers.

Please refer to the PS2 Accessibility and Inclusion Guide on our website for details on the spaces, noting in particular any restrictions that may impact your personal circumstances. PS² is deeply aware of the need for more accessible artist-led spaces, many of which are impacted by temporary leases which do not allow these organisations to make the necessary changes to their buildings. Ensuring access for all is a key component of our future direction, to support meaningful, equitable, engaged, and reflective programmes of work with/for artists and for/with audiences.
