The Museum of Loss and Renewal and The Walking Library are very pleased to invite applications for the online Group Residency PLACE, PEOPLE AND TIME: WILD WAYS

Wild Ways is an international residency and public art project curated and facilitated through a new partnership between The Museum of Loss and Renewal (Tracy Mackenna & Edwin Janssen, Collemacchia, Italy) and The Walking Library (Misha Myers, Melbourne and Dee Heddon, Glasgow) and is part of The Museum of Loss and Renewal’s ongoing Place, People and Time group residency series. This new partnership brings together two long-standing artist duos and projects who share site-specific, participatory and socially engaged art practices in common, yet hold diverse skills and expertise between them.

The residencies are offered for practitioners and researchers working in all creative disciplines and for those who have a strong interest in the investigation of site and place. Applications from fields where relationship to and investigation of place and site are of central focus and are used to develop, conserve, document, explore, explain, interrogate, plan and propose such as performance, art, design, architecture, archaeology, engineering, geography, geology, geotechnology, history, landscape design and writing are welcomed. 

The online component of the project will take place through four weekly 3-hour online workshops on 7, 14, 21 and 28 October 2021, and will result in a digital publication. The online residency is offered in partnership with a one-week in-situ residency that will be held in Italy’s Molise region in October 2022 (advertised Jan 2022), hosted by The Museum of Loss and Renewal. Applicants may apply for either or both residencies. The maximum number of participants for the online residency is 12, and for the residency in Italy is 10.
