Open Call | Satellites Programme 2023

Each year we Collective Edinburgh invite emerging creative practitioners at a pivotal point in their practice to submit a proposal for their Satellites Programme.

Four creative practitioners based in Scotland will be selected to form a cohort for the 2023 edition of Satellites. The programme seeks to foster criticality through peer development and reflection, and includes discussions, workshops, events, retreats and public presentations of new work.

Four selected practitioners will each receive:

  • £3000 artist fee

  • £2000 research and production budget

  • Support from our programme team to produce a new work

  • Three days of tech support

  • Participation in four facilitated group critical discussion sessions

  • Two group retreats (Edinburgh and elsewhere in the UK)

  • Studio visits and production meetings with the Collective programme team

  • A dedicated critical response, produced to accompany the new work (this could be a text, talk, workshop, podcast etc.)

  • Professional documentation of new work

  • Events and workshops with fellow Satellites participants

  • Marketing, publicity, travel and access support

  • Support and access to services from PAM Wellbeing

Applications are welcome from across the spectrum of contemporary art and creative practice including but not limited to: studio based, material (paint, sculpture, print, etc), photography, moving image, research, collaboration, curating, social engagement, activism, performance, writing and critical enquiry.

This year the selection panel for Satellites consists of artist Sulaïman Majali, curator Amal Khalaf, and artist Jennie Temple.

Before submitting here, please read the guidelines and Advice & FAQs.

Collective is supported by Creative Scotland.

Deadline: 8th May 2023
