A month long residency in the gallery at Centrespace in Bristol City. Followed by a two week exhibition. Practicing artists from all disciplines are invited to apply with a proposal to use the gallery as a temporary studio space from 4 – 30 of August 2015.

The project brief invites a contemporary response to the area around the gallery: known as The Old City (as designated by the Walled City Walk map) that will inspire new work.
In 2014 The ‘Walled City Walk’ map, a guide to the Old City was launched in the gallery. The Map was designed and printed by the Centrespace Letterpress Collective and accompanied by a set of ‘Trader Postcards’.The Old City Residency is an opportunity for an artist to build on the success of the map: to bring a fresh insight and share with the public a new interpretation of the area. Artists are encouraged to consider the multi layered historical, commercial, social and psycho-geographic possibilities of the Old City from a contemporary perspective.

Deadline for submissions:
Wednesday 27th May – midnight
