Artist in Residency Opportunity, Radnorshire Wildlife Trust


As part of our Rhôs Pasture Restoration Project we are seeking to appoint a visual artist(s) to undertake a residency in Summer/Autumn 2021.  The artist will spend time getting to know rhôs pasture and build an understanding of its importance for biodiversity, ecosystem services, climate change and people. They will communicate with farmers, land owners and local communities. There will be the opportunity to reflect on past work and develop new work in response to the habitat.

The artist fee is £3,000 plus £500 towards accommodation and travel. 

The artist will work closely with Jenny Mottershead, Community Arts & Heritage Officer and with CARAD Rhayader Museum.

This opportunity forms part of our work to raise awareness of rhôs pasture, engage people with the habitat and utilise it for educational, health and wellbeing benefits. It’s just one of the ways we will be using arts and heritage within the project.

Please visit our website for the artist brief and more information on the project. 

For more information on the residency contact or on 01597 823298. Closing date is 27th June 2021.
