Call for University of Exeter Arts and Culture Fellows 2019opportunity
The University of Exeter is inviting applications from creative practitioners for three Creative Fellowship opportunities. Each will be an exploratory placement, lasting four to five weeks, working in an interdisciplinary
The University has recently produced a new Arts and Culture strategy, aiming to “place creativity at the heart of all we think, imagine and do together”. The Arts and Culture Fellowships are an important mechanism for putting our ambitions into practice, offering creative practitioners the opportunity to engage with innovative research across the University’s colleges and campuses.
The Fellowships are open to practitioners of any artform (including visual, digital, sound and performing arts, film, literature and music). Rather than being a ‘residency’ (where an artist produces work for a host that assumes the context of audience), these opportunities are described as placements, where the cultural practitioner is a peer, producing creative outputs that support and enrich the core activity of the host (i.e. the relevant University of Exeter institute or cross-departmental group).
institutes/cross-departmental groups at the University who will be hosting fellows are:
- Institute of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (IDSAI) (Streatham Campus), Fellow research theme: Uncertainty Quantification
- Environment and Sustainability Institute (Penryn Campus), Fellow research theme: Place and landscape; interdisciplinary methods
- Centre for Human-Animal-Environment Bioarchaeology (HumAnE) (Streatham Campus), Fellow research theme: Care, the great
human tradition: A multi-disciplinary collaborative exploration of family care
across time and culture
Interview dates for the Fellowship opportunities will be as follows:
- Institute of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (IDSAI) - Fri 29 March, Streatham Campus, Exeter
-Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) - Tue 9 April, Penryn Campus, Penryn
-Centre for Human-Animal-Environment Bioarchaeology (HumAnE) - Wed 10 April, Streatham Campus, Exeter
The Fellowships will run over a period of four to five weeks to be agreed with the University of Exeter, between April and the end of July 2019, split between in-situ research and production time. The timing and detail of outputs are to be developed in discussion with host institutes.
