An opportunity for young artists

Out of the Blueprint are delighted to announce that, as part of our creative programme, and marking 2018 as the Year of Young People, we’re seeking applications from young artists for two artist print based residencies this winter/spring.

The residencies are available to Scottish based artists, aged 24 or under. Each residency takes place over two months and provides the artist with a workspace, access to the Riso and Gocco machines, a fee and budget for materials; as well as an opportunity to exhibit work in progress within The Drill Hall.

There will also be opportunities to develop artwork for sale through the exhibition, as well as other channels such as print fairs and online.

Residency 1
November - December 2018
(exhibition January - February 2019)

Residency 2
January - March 2019
(exhibition March - April 2019)


Out of the Blueprint are looking for proposals for the residencies. The proposal should consist of:

  • A CV, including date of birth
  • An outline of the research investigation to be undertaken during the residency, with indication of potential artworks to be developed
  • A summary of any research undertaken to date, with any relevant links
  • Between 8 - 12 relevant visuals, featuring current and previous work.
  • An indication of whether you are available for residency 1 or 2.
