On-AiR in Glasgow: Residencies Workshop and On-Air Visit to Cove Park 4 & 5 Feb 2011

On-AiR is a Europe-wide "tool for artists"; mobility workshops and training programs on artist-in-residence (AiR) opportunities. The Glasgow School of Art was one of 19 organisations across the EU hosting a workshop.

4th Year Fine Art Professional Practice Workshop - Fri 4 Feb, 1.30 - 4pm Lecture Theatre, Barnes Building, The Glasgow School of Art 

This workshop was led by Boyana Panevska and Lotje Geeven from Trans Artists. Trans Artists is a knowledge centre on artist-in-residence opportunities, based in Amsterdam. This workshop informed about facts, use and value of international artist-in-residence programmes, as well as other opportunities for artists to stay and work elsewhere 'for art's sake'. All attending received an invaluable free booklet about international artist residencies. 

4th Year Professional Practice: 
On-AiR visit to Cove Park  - Sat 5 Feb, 11am - 5pm

Cove Park is an international centre based in Scotland for the arts and creative industries. Founded in 1999 by Eileen and Peter Jacobs, Cove Park's annual programme of residencies enables national and international artists, working in all art forms, to undertake research and develop new projects. Cove Park is located on the Rosneath peninsula on the west coast of Scotland. On the visit students were shown around the site by Alexia Holt; heared about Cove Park's projects and opportunities, and met a recent Cove Park artist resident to find out about their time and work.

ON-AiR publication

and on how to order it here:


"After a two year collaboration the ON-AiR partners present:ON-AiR: Reflecting on the mobility of artists in Europe.

With this publication the partners of the ON-AiR project aim to take you on a 'journey', reflecting on the current state of mobility in which the artists in Europe operate and their art flourishes. It also includes a summary of the results and outcomes of the ON-AiR project.

An Editorial Team consisting of 18 mobility experts from the different regions of Europe, all working as partners in ON-AiR, proposed 10 topics or thoughts for a more in-depth approach. Ten essays by authors from across Europe are the result. The content and format of the essays differ enormously: varying from a letter written to a resident artist, to an examination of the much-discussed 'brain drain' phenomenon in Eastern Europe, to drawings from a pirate rabbit reflecting on mobility.

This publication does not intend to solve problems, nor does it offer a complete overview of them. It is meant to share issues we experienced during the project with others operating in the field of artist mobility."

This work programme (ON-AiR) has been funded with support from the European Commission. This publication reflects the views only of the authors, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein.
