This opportunity for two artists to be based at Grizedale Forest is an annual intensive six week long residency that aims to foster experimentation and innovation in response to the natural environment. The artists will be encouraged to reflect and connect with nature for the full six week period. A Royal Society of Sculptors member will be paired with an early-career sculptor (those having completed an undergraduate degree within the last five years and also living and working in the North West) to explore how creative ideas can evolve and how new ideas and innovative thinking can cross generations of artistic practice.
