Student Residency Prize 2021

Deadline: 2 Jul 2021


This annual prize is open to any student who will graduate this year OR any artist who has graduated in the past two years, from a college or university in Scotland and in any media.

The Cromarty Arts Trust came into existence in 1987 and is a registered charity based in the beautiful Highland town of Cromarty, on the Black Isle. Our goals are to promote and embrace the arts, education, environment, history of the Highlands, and the conservation of buildings of historical or architectural importance. We organise a year-round programme of arts, crafts, literary and music workshops and courses, exhibitions, one-off events, live music gigs and concerts as well as hiring out our spectacular, historic venues for training groups and private functions.

Cromarty itself is a rather special part of the world – a small town on the peninsula of the Black Isle that is not only beautiful and vibrant, but brimming with history, wildlife, geology, important architecture and one of the friendliest places you could hope to visit! With award-winning cafes, restaurant, shops and galleries and a resident population of bottle-nosed dolphins in the Firth, it’s not surprising that it is consistently listed in the ‘top places to live in Scotland’ lists in various press publications.

The prize consists of a student residency at the Cromarty Stables for one month in the Autumn 2021, either 28th Sept - 28th Oct OR 1st - 30th November. Please only apply if you are able to come for one of these chunks of time. En-suite, self catering accommodation and studio space will be provided. A grant of £750 towards travel, materials and subsistence costs will also be paid to the winner. The residency is primarily intended to provide an opportunity for the winning artist to develop their own work in a new and inspiring environment at the beginning of their artistic career.

The resident artist will also be expected to:
• Hold an event such as a talk or workshop and a small, informal exhibition.
• Write a short retrospective report about their residency.
• Leave behind a piece of their work for the Cromarty Collection.
