British Council
Transatlantic Residency Programme


Application deadline 2 December 2016.

The British Council and its partners are pleased to announce a new UK / Caribbean artist residency programme focusing on transatlantic exchanges between the UK, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago. 

Autograph ABP is proud to be a partner on this programme, and our Director Mark Sealy will be part of the international jury to select the artist in residence. 

The British Council in collaboration with UK and Caribbean based cultural part- ners have come together to offer new residency opportunities open to visual artists, art critics and curators who are living and working anywhere in the UK. The residency can be research and/or practice-based and includes round trip travel, accommodation, a materials/project budget, an artist fee and a stipend for living costs. 

This pilot residency is designed to accommodate two (3) three-month residency placements beginning between January and March 2017 in Jamaica and Trinidad and the residency will have an open-ended outcome. It offers supportive bases with partner institutions, connected with the successful candidate's proposal.

The residency is supported by British Council, its UK partners: Delfina Foundation, Gasworks, Autograph ABP and Hospitalfield Arts; and Caribbean partners: NLS Kingston in Jamaica and Alice Yard in Trinidad.
