We are delivering a month-long online residency exchange in collaboration with Videotage in Hong Kong as part of videoclub and Videotage’s seventh Both Sides Now programme. Residencies will take place on videoclub’s Vital Capacities virtual residency space: and on Videotage’s Minecraft residency. Residencies will take place in February 2022. Deadline for submissions is: 12 January 2022.

The programme invites applications for the residency from disabled, D/deaf and Neurodivergent artists based in Brighton & Hove. There are 2 opportunities available, with fees of £1,000 for participation plus £500 of production costs. There are additional access support budgets available, which can be organised depending on requirements. Residencies are part-time only and can be worked around your schedule.

Work produced will be exhibited as part of Third Thursdays and as part of an exhibition on Vital Capacities’ website. It may also be included in screenings in the UK and Hong Kong.

Both Sides Now 7’s theme is environmentalism. We invite applicants to consider how they might explore this theme through their residency and work. It might help to look at previous residencies on Vital Capacities to see how others have approached their work.
