Thank you to all who submitted Notes of Interest for Open Call for Micro Residents on 27 & 28 August in the Park Centre, Baxter Park, Dundee. We will be in touch before the end of the week.
This page remains here for information only. If you have further questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Selected Micro Residents will be invited to produce new site-responsive work to share at Open Stage, which will coincide with the Open Night of May Meet In Mutual exhibition in the Park Centre, Baxter Park, Dundee on Friday 29 August.
Interested artists (including visual artists, musicians, writers, etc.) are invited to answer an Open Call to take part in this two-day Micro Residency as part of the project May Meet In Mutual.
The two-day Micro Residency is an opportunity to research and/or make work in response to the site and most importantly to share and exchange ideas with others. We seek artists who are interested in considering what can be important/complex/exciting/problematic about site-responsive practice. Those who intend to focus on performance, text, or screen-based work will be invited to share responses during the Open Stage event on Friday 29 August.
Micro Residents will utilise the Park Centre where desk space and basic materials will be supplied, as well as lunch. The site provides opportunities to experiment with screen-based work, to test or document new work, particularly sculptural or installation floor-based work and to share ideas with others. Inspired by the social and democratic ethos of the community’s Park Centre, May Meet In Mutual is intrigued by how Open Source methodology could inform artistic practice.
