Artists and Archive: Artist Moving Image at the BBC is a unique opportunity for six artists to access BBC Archives during a six month research and production period with the ambition to develop and create a new film work using the archives and, potentially, specially shot material.

Training and development are key elements of this residency and BBC Scotland will provide bespoke archiving training on how to access and use archive, as well as the legal, editorial and copyright considerations attached to its use.  At the end of the three month research period proposals will be reviewed and go into a three month production period, with craft support from BBC Scotland. Throughout the residency and production period BBC Scotland will work with LUX to discuss, review and support the artists and establish a programme of talks and events at BBC Scotland which will allow the six artists to share their work with the public and BBC Staff, in addition there will be a £5,000 fee for each participating artist. Applications are invited from emerging and established artists working with the moving image and based in Scotland.  Before submitting your application please download and read the criteria and terms and conditions by clicking here.


This project is produced and delivered in partnership with BBC Scotland, LUX and Creative Scotland.
