Making History Residency 2022

Making History is a maker in residence Scotland-wide initiative, funded by Historic Environment Scotland (HES) and Craft Scotland, bringing makers in residence to some of Scotland’s finest historical buildings.

Historic Environment Scotland and Craft Scotland are looking for three to four makers to support a community engagement project inspired by four of Historic Environment Scotland properties, Arbroath Abbey, Dunfermline Abbey, Melrose Abbey and Dunblane Cathedral.

Taking inspiration from the physical structure, stories, history and culture of these buildings, the successful applicants will be supported to work with a community or learning group to co-design new work in any one of Craft Scotland’s eligible disciplines, and share their findings, practice and skills with other makers and educators through in-person or online talks.

The project will take place from February to March 2022, with a showcase presented after this time. Makers will need to commit to 15 days work in total, for the development and delivery of the project.

Each maker will be paid a fee of £3,675 (inclusive of VAT) for the residency. The fee is intended to cover studio/ site and research time, scheduled meetings, preparation, travel, and delivery of agreed outcomes. A separate materials budget will be agreed with your HES Learning Officer/Manager.
