Constant Relay is a first-in-first-served, no application, short-form residency and exchange opportunity at ReadyMade Works. Artists receive time in the studio bookended by encounters with fellow artists in residence.
Throughout March artists will be offered 3.5-hour sessions in the studio with 30-minutes of allocated time to cross-over with the following artist in residence. This crossover is an informal opportunity to connect with other practitioners, share something about what you are working on, or exchange ideas.
The residencies will run Monday-Friday 28th Feb - 11th March, and 21st - 25th March. Each day is divided into three different studio sessions 9-12:30pm, 12-3:30pm and 3-6:30pm. Artists are encouraged to do at least 2 sessions over the course of the residency. Constant Relay will culminate in a closed sharing on Friday 25th March 4-6pm hosted by ReadyMade Works Creative Producer Jane McKernan. All involved artists are invited to come together and share their processes and exchanges with one-another.
