Training Opportunity

Call Out for Neurodivergent Artists

Mainspring Arts has teamed up with BarrowFull to present SpringTide, an exciting artistic residency for young neurodivergent women living in Cumbria and Lancashire.

Over five days you'll take part in workshops exploring socially engaged practice. The workshops will be tailored to you and led by an experienced neurodivergent artist.

You'll come up with an idea for a socially engaged project of your own, and get support, mentoring and seed funding to work on your idea after the residency.

The project is designed by and for neurodivergent artists - our aim is to create a space where you'll feel comfortable, supported and able to thrive.

The opportunity includes:

A 5-day residency at BarrowFull, Barrow-in-Furness

Access support

A £500 fee

Travel expenses & accommodation for you & a PA/support worker, if needed

£300 seed funding towards your own project

4 mentoring sessions to help you with your project

An opportunity to try out your project with local audiences (if you want to!)

Support to take the next steps

This opportunity is open to neurodivergent female artists aged 18 - 25 living in Cumbria or Lancashire.
