Mophradat residency at CCA

Visual artists from Egypt can now apply for a three-month self-directed residency at CCA from 1 July to 30 September, 2018. The deadline for applications is 15 December 2017.

The successful applicant will be based in CCA's artist flat in order to undertake research around the city. CCA will help facilitate research and meetings with other practitioners. The artist may occasionally use CCA’s spaces for screenings, workshops and critiques during their residency, and will be provided with marketing and a small amount of technical support for these events, to be arranged in advance with the programme team. They are welcome to use CCA’s equipment, including projectors, sound kit and lights to experiment. CCA staff also offer feedback on work when invited to do so. CCA has a small artist’s flat on its third floor, which is where the resident will be accommodated, and Mophradat will cover their flight to Glasgow, monthly stipend, a studio if needed, visa, and travel insurance.
