Open Call: D6 Research Residencies (North East UK), D6: Culture in Transit


We are inviting artists based in the North East of England (Tyne & Wear, Northumberland, County Durham and Teesside) to apply for a four-week research residency at D6. There are two residency opportunities available:

Dates for opportunity 1 March - April 2019
Dates for opportunity 2 May - July 2019 (to encompass Refugee Week 17th-23rd June)
We are seeking to support artists in our region with an international dimension to their practice. We will provide regional artists with the space and time to research a new project or idea without the constraints of having to necessarily produce a body of work; the emphasis for this residency is on research, not on finished artworks.
We are interested in taking forward the ideas and projects developed to form part of our future programme where possible. All artists will have access to the D6 studio in Newcastle City Centre, equipment and critical support. Please note this is a non-residential residency programme.
