Artists residency brief (PDF, 109kB)

The University of Bristol is looking to commission one poet and two artists-in-residence, to work with the University and local communities, reflecting on and imagining the new Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus, which is due to open in 2021/22. Each residency is offered for a total of £8k with each artist expected to work for approx. 6-8 weeks within one calendar year of the start date which is likely to be June 2018.
The closing date for this opportunity is midnight on Tuesday 8 May. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to an interview to present their proposals on Tuesday 22 May.

The Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus will give us opportunities to work with the city, create jobs and celebrate Bristol culture. The development will turn an eyesore into a green, open campus that benefits the whole city.

Our new campus will concentrate on educating postgraduate students, attracting top talent from across the UK and around the world.

We’re talking with communities, businesses and the Council to shape our plans, which include landmark buildings for postgraduate teaching, learning and collaboration. Work here will focus on digital technologies, the innovation they drive and and how they're used by people, organisations and industry.

We’ll also expand our successful Engine Shed enterprise hub and build a new student village together with improvements to the public realm, including new cycle and pedestrian links to the surrounding area and high-quality landscaping.
