G R O W Artists Residency

Community Growers is a new scheme where food growers within a number of central Sheffield neighbourhoods will be given resources and support to encourage and nurture localised food growing. This could be in backyards and front gardens, window boxes, cascading down tower blocks. The GROW residency provides an open remit to create new, innovative artwork(s) with the scheme and with the communities involved.

The residency runs from July 2009 to March 2010. The residency can take place over a more intensive time frame if this suits the project(s) you have in mind.

Residency Fee: 3200 (25 days +)
Materials: 600
