Open House artist in residence

Kettle’s Yard and our neighbouring communities in North Cambridge are looking to commission an excellent programme conceived by an artist for the 6th edition of Open House: Evolving City artist residency.

Kettle’s Yard’s Open House community programme aims to empower communities in North Cambridge to actively shape the cultural life of their city through developing innovative and engaging projects in collaboration with the very best artists working today.

This is a unique opportunity for an artist with a socially engaged practice to co-produce new work through dialogue and workshops with the community. From March 2020 to February 2021, the artist will be ‘in residence’ in North Cambridge, working alongside community groups and individuals to collaboratively realise an innovative and inspiring art project. This will lead to a public presentation or celebratory event at the end of the residency in a community setting. The residency also asks artists and community to think about the ways in which the project can connect to Kettle’s Yard.

Project aims:

  • To provide an inspiring context for an artist to co-produce new work in collaboration with local communities and celebrate the creativity of North Cambridge
  • To support local communities to have a confident voice in shaping the cultural life of their city
  • To develop an exciting, positive and inclusive creative programme to connect and engage people from diverse backgrounds, to bring people together, and to support integration and multi-generational activity
  • To support Kettle’s Yard to explore new ways of working more collaboratively with their neighbouring communities; and sharing decision- making processes through co-production both at Kettle’s Yard and within North Cambridge
  • To creatively engage with Kettle’s Yard’s collections, exhibitions and archives
  • To develop cultural resilience and creative opportunities for North Cambridge that outlive the span of the residency
  • To work with Kettle’s Yard in exploring and facilitating ways for the community to develop their own creative projects

Closes 2 December 2019
