Lime is seeking experienced artist/printmakers who can work with Nursing and Midwifery staff and patients at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) to produce a unique body of artworks.
Residency 1: Nursing, Trauma + PTSD – This residency will aim to inform the wider public about the nursing profession by exploring ‘the nurses experience’ and the systems and practices in place.
Residency 2: Elective Caesarean – This residency will aim to reduce anxiety and stress associated with Elective Caesarean through an exploration of the procedure and the associated emotional impact it has on pregnant women.
For the initial application stage, artists are asked to submit an expression of interest, identifying their preferred residency, plus supporting documentation to include a statement of intent, CV and images of recent work.
Artistic outcomes are ‘open ended’, however artists are expected to adopt a co-creative and/or participatory approach to the development of new works, engaging staff and patient groups throughout the residency.
Residencies will run over a five month period through February-July 2019. Selected artists will be expected to allocate one half day per week.
Artists will have access to the *NEW* Lime Hospital Printmaking Studio that includes an etching press and screen printing equipment, located on site at the Oxford Road Campus.
