D2P residency for Drawing Performance, Apr/May 2019

April/May 2019: Extended deadline for entries – Sun 10 Feb 2019 Residency: 27 April – 11 May 2019

The D2P Residency program is a unique opportunity for new and developing professional artists and art students to engage in the dynamic artistic discipline of drawing performance art. The program provides the foundation to develop drawing and performance skills and to translate creative practice into live action. This rigorous 15 days structured program of mentored residency includes one-on-one tutorials, workshops, intensive studio time, studio visits and artist talks by UK drawing and performance artists. The program is headed by artist and curator Ram Samocha, who is internationally acclaimed and the founder of Draw to Perform.

The residency will be located in the heart of Brighton, one of the most vibrant and colourful cities in Europe and a centre of creativity, vibrancy and progressive art. This time the residency takes place in May to make the most of what this town has to offer. May is the busiest time in Brighton, with the Brighton Festival and Fringe Festival taking place. This means multiple cultural and artistic events and hundreds of Artists Open Houses to visit and explore. Free time will be provided to explore and enjoy the spirit of Brighton festival.

The program will also include guided tours to key exhibitions and art events in Brighton and London and will end with an evening of live drawing performances to celebrate and showcase the output of this creative time.
