Creative residencies from the University of Brighton
The role of artists in our society is changing all the time. Collaborative projects are much more common than they used to be and Artists are more often called upon to work in a wide range of contexts. The advantage of such an art residency for the learning and research process is that it gives an artist the opportunity to inhabit and work in a fresh location and context. An artist can take up such a residency for a number of different reasons. At root, they kick start the development of fresh artistic interests and ideas. On such residencies, inspiration can be conjured up by being dropped into a different physical environment which leads in turn to new ideas, social engagements and interventions.
