Call Out for Creative Fellowships – Arts and Culture University of Exeter

A fantastic opportunity for freelance creative practitioners of any discipline to collaborate with researchers at the University of Exeter.

Arts and Culture University of Exeter is inviting applications from freelance creative practitioners for two Creative Fellowships running in the next academic year (September 2020-July 2021).

Each will be a 4-5 week exploratory placement, working in an interdisciplinary context. The Creative Fellowships are open to practitioners of any artform, including visual, digital, sound and performing arts, craft, design, film, literature and music.

Rather than being a residency, these opportunities are described as placements. The creative practitioner is a peer, opening up new approaches and conversations with the University hosts while developing and enriching their own creative practice. This scheme encourages mutually-beneficial exchange, where both the host and the creative practitioner gain new insights and potential ways of working.

The University of Exeter Creative Fellowship hosts in 2020-21 are:

  • Antimicrobial Resistance Network (Exeter, Penryn and Truro campuses) Led by the Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health (WCCEH) and the European Centre for Environment and Human Health (ECEHH).
  • The Politics of Sexual Nature (Exeter Campuses) Led by the Sexual Knowledge Unit.

The total budget per Creative Fellowship is £5,000 (inclusive of VAT) on a freelance basis, to include practitioner’s fee, travel and accommodation, production costs and documentation. In the uncertain context of the Covid-19 pandemic, we will adapt as required to remote working.

Applications close on Friday 19 June 2020.
