East Bank partners launch new residency programme for East London creatives
We are excited to announce the official launch of SEEDED – a new funded residency programme for East London creative practitioners, small-scale creative organisations and collectives, as part of the East Bank Creative Programme, supported by Foundation for Future London and City of London.
East Bank’s London College of Fashion, UAL and UCL East are kicking off the programme by offering two applicants the opportunity to explore ideas, experiment and develop new practices, while pushing conventional boundaries of engaged, creative research. Running from Spring 2023, the selected residents will receive £5000 funding, access to networks and researchers as well as workspace and facilitated support throughout the programme.
Practitioners keen to investigate themes around social practice, activism, collective memory, urbanisation and community engagement, through co-creation and partnership with one of the host organisations are invited to make their application by Monday 21 November 2022.
To find out more about the residency programme and to apply, visit the SEEDED web pages AND share with your creative networks across East London.
SEEDED is part of the East Bank Creative Programme launched this summer, supported by the Mayor of London, Foundation for Future London, the City of London, London Legacy Development Corporation, and the councils of Newham, Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest. East Bank Partners are UAL’s London College of Fashion, UCL (University College London), V&A East and V&A East Storehouse, BBC and Sadler’s Wells.
