About the residency
Endelienta is a cultural organisation working to foster the arts and spirituality in North Cornwall. Building on the success and reputation of the St Endellion Music Festivals and on the unique setting of St Endellion, Endelienta promotes music, literature and arts through a year-round programme of events, offering more people the opportunity to participate in the arts in North Cornwall.
One of their ambitions is to support emerging artists, in particular musicians, composers, writers and visual artists. They want to share the experience and spirit of the inspirational setting of St Endellion with talented creative minds and enable opportunities for working on and showcasing new compositions, writing or art on location.
With support from Arts Council England they are able to offer a short residency to a composer, a writer and a visual artist. This is the third year that Endelienta are able to offer this opportunity.
The residencies are for 7 days working on location at St Endellion, to take place from 30 August until 6 September 2018. A stipend of £600 including travel expenses is available for a selected composer, a writer and an artist. Accommodation and work space is provided on site.
The purpose of the residency is to support the selected candidates in their creative work, without limitations with regard to subject matter. Endelienta expect however that the three successful candidates will incorporate in their work a reflection on the St Endellion location and make a presentation at the end of the residential week (6 Sept). The residencies are scheduled simultaneously, offering candidates the opportunity to work together or in parallel.
