The Endangered Landscapes Artist Residencies

8th December 2020

As is part of an exciting new collaboration between the Cambridge Conservation Initiative’s Arts, Science and Conservation Programme (ASCP) and the Endangered Landscapes Programme (ELP), we are delighted to announce the launch of the Endangered Landscapes Artist Residencies and Arts Prize.

This opportunity is open to artists with links to the landscapes in the following countries: Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Portugal, Romania, Scotland, Turkey, Ukraine, and Wales. 

The arts and cultural practice are a powerful means of reawakening our sense of the familiar, connecting to the past, and exploring possible futures. They play a pivotal role in addressing environmental challenges and are a compelling route into understanding how people are connected to landscape. Artists are invited to be in residence in one of ELP’s eight implementation landscape restoration projects. Residencies are accompanied by awards of between $3,150 and $5,400 and will begin in June 2021. 

Expressions of Interest open on the 7th January 2021 for one month.  

You can find out all about our plans for artist residencies, the external judging panel and how to apply here.
