About Location One

The International Residency Programme at Location One in SoHo, New
York, was established in 2001. Full details about the programme can
be found on at

Location One is a not-for-profit organisation devoted to the
convergence of visual, performing and digital arts. Its programme of
activities includes the established international residency programme
for visual artists, exhibitions of work by emerging, senior, and
resident artists, performance events and collaborations and community

For full information about Location One please look at the website


Candidates may work with painting, sculpture, installation, video,
photography, sound, new media or other media. Candidates must be
working artists with a substantial record of achievement outside
formal education.

Location One's residency programme seeks artists who wish to
experiment with new forms of artistic expression, including those
involving new technologies. The programme is explicitly open to
candidates of different levels of experience.

Funding and Accommodation

The Scottish Arts Council wishes to ensure maximum flexibility for
those artists with families or career or individual needs. The
Residency opportunity is thus structured as follows:

The successful selected artist will be invited to participate in
Location One's Residency Programme (further details below). The
Residency fees payable to Location One will be met by the Scottish
Arts Council and the successful artist will receive a financial award
of 6,000 to enable them to take up this opportunity.

Location One will assist the artist in finding appropriate
accommodation for the period. Artists will receive financial support
for accommodation, through the one-off payment of an accommodation
allowance of 4,000 for the duration of the residency.

Application Process

The residency is open to visual artists working in any medium. When
completing their applications, artists should explain in their
written statement their reasons for seeking to undertake this

Applications to the Scottish Arts Council are invited by the deadline
of 5.00pm on 1 October 2007, using the Scottish Arts Council
Application Form for Individuals 2007/8 and selection will be made by
a twostage process involving both the Scottish Arts Council and
Location One.

The Scottish Arts Council will consider the applications in order to
produce a shortlist of three artists. The Visual Arts Department of
the Scottish Arts Council may invite artists to interview in order to
reach the shortlist of three, but reserves the right not to do so
should it not add anything to the application process. Applicants
will be advised by the Scottish Arts Council whether or not they have
been shortlisted by 7 December 2007.

Location One will then convene a curatorial panel to select the
successful artists for the residency through consideration of the
written applications and supporting visual material from the short-
listed artists. The final decision will be made by Location One and
the three short-listed artists will be advised of the final outcome
before 31 December 2007.

Location One's curatorial panels base their decisions on
a) artistic merit
b) potential for artistic growth, and
c) appropriateness, of their motives for applying for the residency
and their artistic work, for the residency programme
