Closing date: Monday, 13th April 2020  

Artist and Scientist in residence roles will begin mid-June and end in mid-August.

Green & Away offers an artist residency for the duration of its summer season. This placement provides an opportunity for an emerging artist to develop and demonstrate their art at a leading environmental venue. The successful candidate will have a lot of independence over the course of their residency, and the organisation is open to your ideas for what you want to create on the site. You will, however, be encouraged to contribute an interesting piece of environmental, ecological, or land art, working with natural or recycled materials, which will be either permanent or present for the duration of the season and which will add to the atmosphere of the site. The ability and willingness to explain and educate volunteers and visitors to the site about your work and to collaborate on other creative projects are also desirable.

Green & Away takes place outdoors and under canvas. You will need your own tent, however, we may be able to arrange one for you if you are unable to bring one and you let us know in advance. Full board is provided (3 vegetarian meals a day and regular tea breaks with cake!). The site has hot showers, clothes washing facilities and composting toilets.

A licensed bar, comfortable sitting areas and arts and crafts facilities come as and when we have built them. There is WiFi and phone/laptop charging facilities. Please note, when you first arrive the field will be almost empty (although our toilets and showers will be operating), so please be prepared for this.
