Opportunity: Cornish Language Residency at Endelienta

We have an exciting residency opportunity available this June! With support from Arts Council England and Cornwall Council, and in partnership with Lowender Peran we are hosting a short residency for creatives to work with a Cornish language expert to further their creative practice. We welcome composers, musicians, singers and writers to take part in this residency which will last for 6 days working on location at St Endellion in June 2022. A stipend of up to £600 per individual is available, plus travel expenses, for the selected creatives to work with the Cornish language expert. Accommodation and workspace is provided for on site.

The purpose of this residency is to support the selected candidates to develop the use of the Cornish language in their creative practice. This is not intended simply as a translation service. They will have access to a Cornish language expert during the residency. The only mandatory outcome is that the work is in the Cornish language, there is no limitation with regard to subject matter. We expect participants to make a presentation at the end of the residential week.

We are able to work with three creatives on this project. Groups of more than three individuals are welcome to apply, but the maximum allocation is £1,800. Individuals would not be required to work with other residency participants, and all participants will have equal access to the Cornish language expert. However, we encourage collaborative working with other residency participants as part of the process.

More information is available here.
