PRESS RELEASE


Artist Residencies at Outlandia announced


In January 2015 a call-out was made for artist proposals for week-long residencies hosted by London Fieldworks & the Nevis Landscape Partnership at Outlandia, a unique artists’ studio and field-station in Glen Nevis, Scotland. 

From 65 applications received the Outlandia Steering Group selected 8 UK based artists to receive a bursary of £250 to support their residency. Due to the exceptional standard of the proposals received a further 14 unfunded artist residencies have been offered.
