Here are some artist opportunity's from tk inbox
Re:Create Artists’ Residencies

Stills, Edinburgh Printmakers and Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop invite artists to apply for the above opportunities to develop their practice in working with individuals from selected communities.

Throughout a period of up to eight months at least three selected artists will receive

- critical and professional support to explore new ideas and best practice

- resources and training to experiment with the techniques and processes of the three organisations’ studio facilities

Re:Create is a dynamic city-wide programme which provides artistic and professional development to a core group of artists while introducing the creative possibilities of specialised resources to people less likely to participate in the visual arts in Edinburgh.

Please note that this is a non-residential opportunity, artists will not be provided with accommodation but reasonable travelling costs will be met.

Dear colleagues

Details of the 2008 round of the AHRCs Collaborative Research Training scheme have now been announced.

The aim of the scheme is to support institutions in establishing new or enhancing existing specialist research training that will primarily benefit arts and humanities doctoral students in the UK.

Applications can be made by any UK Higher Education Institution (HEI) or AHRC-recognised Independent Research Organisation (IRO), in collaboration with one or more UK HEI(s), or one or more museums, galleries, libraries, and archives.

The scheme is made up of 3 categories:

Specialist category

Applications are eligible from 2 or more eligible organisations. Applications must be led by an HEI or IRO. Applications should be for up to 10,000 for up to 2 years. Eligible costs include planning and co-ordination, publicity and marketing, and the production of training materials or resources.

National category

Applications are eligible from organisations intending to set up training on a national scale, for up to 60,000 for 2 years. Eligible costs are as above.

Student-led Initiative category (formerly the Conference category)

Applications are eligible from any UK arts and humanities doctoral student for up to 2000 towards the costs of setting up any collaborative research activity. Any activity or programme of training will be eligible in this category (such as a website or on-line resource etc), as long as it is organised by and for arts and humanities researchers.

It is hoped that the Collaborative Research Training (CRT) scheme can contribute to the aims of the AHRCs Museums and Galleries research programme in supporting new and existing collaborative partnerships between museums, galleries, archives and libraries, and Universities. Particularly for the CRT scheme we believe such collaborations in training could be of great benefit to arts and humanities students and could give them practical experience of working with or within such organisations.

Full details of the scheme and the application procedures can be found on our website:


The deadline for Expressions of Interest for the National Category is 31 January 2008. The deadline for full National bids and all Specialist bids is 31 March 2008.

If you have any questions in regards to the scheme please do not hesitate to contact us. The contacts for the scheme are Ben Spratt, 0117 987 6534, <mailto> and Gavin Buckley, 0117 987 6522, <mailto>.
