Design Residency at Fashion Space Gallery

Description

With the changing landscape of design practice and an increasing interest in collaborative and multidisciplinary projects, it is an exciting time to support practitioners who seek to push their own practice, and forward-thinking collaborations between fashion designers, product, graphic and game designers, artists, architects, engineers and scientists through the residency programme. London-based designers with an existing practice and a background in disciplines such as fashion, textiles, footwear and jewellery, with a strong interest in cross-disciplinary and experimental practice, are invited to apply.

The selected resident will work collaboratively – assembling their own team or working with a team that Fashion Space Gallery helps to organise – bringing together the expertise of designers, technologists and scientists to produce visionary and impactful new work.

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS 2019 Fashion Space Gallery is pleased to announce its fourth annual residency for 2019. The residency was created to support designers working within fashion or associated fields, in particular those whose practice is experimental and hard to define. The residency seeks to encourage collaboration, and, where possible, partnerships with practitioners from other disciplines (e.g. science or graphics) can be facilitated to support the resident’s research.

BRIEF This year, we are looking for designers to respond to the theme of Design and Politics. In a time when global and local politics impact people’s everyday lives, we invite designers to propose ideas that embody design’s ability to impact politics and policies. The selected resident is expected to work collaboratively bringing together the expertise of multi-disciplinary individuals working within the world of design, technology, science and politics to produce visionary and impactful new work.

BACKGROUND With the changing landscape of design practice and an increasing interest in collaborative and multidisciplinary projects, it is an exciting time to support practitioners who seek to push their own practice, and forward-thinking collaborations between fashion designers, product, graphic and game designers, artists, architects, engineers and scientists through the residency programme.

PARTICIPATION London-based designers with an existing practice and a background in disciplines such as fashion, textiles, footwear and jewellery, with a strong interest in cross-disciplinary and experimental practice, are invited to apply. Fashion Space Gallery will select one project, helping to produce, present and promote the work over a six month development process. The selected Design Resident (and his/her collaborator/s) will be awarded a £5000 project development budget and resources to develop their work, including access to design and fabrication studios at the London College of Fashion. Starting in March the residency is expected to culminate in a project during our summer season on Design and Politics at Arcade East for which there will be some additional funds available.
