‘Gather-ing'
Contemporary craft residency and commissions for The Priory, in Stoke Sub Hamdon, Somerset.
Initiated by Somerset Art Works in partnership with the National Trust and curated by Craftspace.

To receive the brief and expression of interest please email d.figueiredo@craftspace.co.uk Deadline Tuesday 5th May.

We are seeking expressions of interest for a Lead Artist’s residency and commission plus three further associate artists’ commissions to take place between June and September 2015 and focusing on a large tithe barn. The aim is to create new work that responds to the ‘spirit of place’, local identity and the rural context, researching and referencing the heritage of the site and its changing uses. Artists are also invited to focus on the generic social and physical aspects of the ‘barn’. Why such large tithe barns were developed and consideration of their role at the heart of medieval life. How and why this building type survives to this day and a re-imagining of the role it might have today. Commissions can also have the effect of enabling visitors to experience the barn in a different way. The Priory is situated in the centre of Stoke Sub Hamdon, a small rural town. It represents a rare and unique group of medieval domestic and agricultural buildings that can demonstrate over 700 years of local and national religious, social, economic and cultural history in England.

The project will showcase contemporary craft: makers, skills, materials and thinking in the context of Somerset Art Weeks which will take place from the 3rd to 18th October 2015. It will meet the aspiration of Somerset Art Works to ‘inspire and challenge’ audiences and ‘raise the quality of craft made and seen in Somerset’ by engaging craft practitioners with a track record of excellence and ability to make creative, imaginative and innovative responses to the site and brief.

For the National Trust in Somerset this project links to their ambition and aspirations to:
  • Increase public access and extend use of The Priory at Stoke Sub Hamdon site.
  • Engage the local resident population and establish a sense of ownership within the community.
  • Facilitate and develop better engagement of their core visitor segments.
  • Provide opportunities to work with the surrounding community.

To receive the brief and expression of interest please email d.figueiredo@craftspace.co.uk Deadline Tuesday 5th May.
