Call for Multi Disciplinary Artists & Creative Thinkers

Gibraltar Cultural Services (GCS) will be organising the Gibraltar 2019 Natwest International Island Games Art Residency at various locations in Gibraltar in June and July 2019. The art residency is a programme for artists working in any medium, interested in developing their work collaboratively in visual arts, physical theatre, performing arts, literature, or any other form. Towards the end of the residency there will be an exhibition to showcase the work produced throughout the two weeks programme.

GCS will be working alongside artist Alan Perez in this project, to develop work of a collaborative nature and foster creative thinking.

My experience at the last Island Games Artist Residency was one I will never forget - we 30 creatives so quickly became an inspired and supportive community where creative experimentation and integrity were our group focus. I left a better artist and a better person.
