We are pleased to announce details of the 2017 Little Sparta Residency Programme. Following an open call for applications, the Little Sparta Trust has awarded three residencies this year to enable artists based in Scotland to develop their work at Little Sparta. The participating artists are:
Gerry Loose (poet)
Martin Parker (sound artist)
Sarah Tripp (visual artist)
These residencies are part of Sharing Little Sparta, a pilot programme launched in 2016 and supported by Creative Scotland. The project is developed in partnership with the National Galleries of Scotland, the Scottish Poetry Library and the University of Edinburgh, and aims to improve and enhance access to Little Sparta for both artists and the public. Further information on Sharing Little Sparta, the residency programme and the work of the participating artists is available here.
