We are inviting an artist or artists to apply for a three-month residency running from August to October 2019 in the unique and beautiful setting of Cressing Temple Barns, Braintree, Essex. The selected artist/s will be given their own studio space in The Dairy and a £10,000 commission to create an artwork that responds to the site which will form part of a new Cressing Temple art trail (see attached Artist Brief).
Cressing Temple Barns is a site rich in ancient history. Built in the 13th century, the Grade I listed Barley and Wheat Barns are amongst the oldest timber barns and some of the few surviving Templar buildings in England.
The selected artist would be given £10,000 (including fee, travel, materials and installation) to create an artwork for Cressing Temple Barns which will be left as a permanent legacy of the residency that visitors to the site can enjoy for years to come. Selected artist/s will have Park Rangers to assist with basic installation of artwork/s if required.
The residency will also include:
- Delivering one participatory workshop for either children, adults or families
- Minimum of three open studio events that invite visitors into the resident artist’s space to better understand the work of the Artist-in-Residence.Download the full artist brief using the icon below.
Deadline for artists to send CV/Images and Expression of Interest letter is 5th July 2019. Interviews will be held on either 16th or 19th July 2019
