NATUR: North Atlantic Tales
call for projects

We’re looking for the stories, collections, archives and memories that connect Iceland, Denmark, Norway with Scotland, and those organisations and individuals wanting to work with artists in residence

We are looking for the stories, collections, archives and memories that connect Iceland, Denmark, Norway and the UK, along with organisations and individuals that want to work with artists in residence to bring them to life. Your work could be the official history of a nation or a very personal exploration of your own heritage. From institutional archives, research projects to family collections we want to hear from you to tell the rich story of our shared cultural heritage.
NATUR: North Atlantic Tales is a new platform enabling artists and archives to work together researching and create new works around the human stories connecting archives, memories and collections that link the people of Denmark, Iceland, Norway, England and Scotland.

It will interrogate 7 themes through the archives of each country that shaped and continue to forge a shared Northern identity (folklore and language, merchants, fisheries, industrialisation, conflict, oil, and women’s history) – inviting artists and communities to work with archivists and collections to activate those stories that connect partners’ sense of shared history. Establishing the NATUR network through both narrative and working partnerships it will enable archives to more efficiently work with creative industries and support communities in accessing and creating identity from the shared heritage in five deeply connected countries.

(PLEASE NOTE: A further call for practicing artists to apply will open in June inviting artists to apply for residencies in Scotland, England, Iceland, Norway and Denmark, with the first project exhibition taking place in Iceland in the Autumn)

Location: All Scotland ,England, Wales, Northern Ireland, International
