Calling all bold, innovative Printmakers!
Starting out as a maker is tough, which is why we are committed to supporting emerging creatives in our spaces with our new campaign, Print in Action.
Real Ideas are here to help with your next steps in your print making journey. This summer, we are looking to support six print focused short-term residencies for graduates, students and emerging artists/makers in Ocean Studios.
We would like to help you develop your creative story by offering the following residency package worth up to £3500 per residency holder:
What is Print in Action?
Print in Action brings printmakers from Plymouth and beyond together, revealing incredible talent, and celebrating print in its inspiring forms.
Led by Real Ideas and the community of printmakers at Ocean Studios, Print in Action is a six-month programme, starting in April 2022, of workshops, masterclasses, talks and discussions, culminating in a three-day festival from 21st – 23rd October 2022.
We aim to be as inclusive as possible in our work but recognise we’re on a journey. We also recognise the creative sector is biased towards those who are white, cisgender and non-disabled. Our programme will be stronger with greater diversity and we welcome applications from those who bring difference. We have included a short equality, diversity and inclusion survey with this application process and if successful, we may ask you for further information about you and/or your workforce so we can better understand our reach and how, together, we can start to break down barriers to inclusion and celebrate diversity. The information collected from the survey will be anonymous and completion is voluntary and won’t be used to affect our shortlisting process in anyway.
