Anna Meredith to lead residency for young female artists
Composer, producer and performer Anna Meredith will lead a residency for young female artists at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester next month.
The four-day residency takes place from 18 to 21 July and will be open to young and emerging female musicians and multidisciplinary artists. It is a collaboration between Brighter Sound and the Museum of Science and Industry as part of the Science in the City Festival.
Anna said: “I’m so excited to be leading Brighter Sound’s summer residency in partnership with the Museum of Science and Industry – this fascinating museum is going to be a brilliant starting point for new musical and visual work and I can’t wait to see what we all come up with!
“I’ll be bringing in my longterm collaborators, workshopleader and guitarist Jack Ross and my sister, visual artist Eleanor Meredith, with whom I’ve worked on several successful cross media projects over the years.
“We’re all passionate about supporting young female creators, and collaborating on new work in such an inspiring setting will be a great place to work together, exploring both collaborative large group pieces and giving space to develop individual ideas.”
Female musicians and multidisciplinary artists aged 16 and 25 are invited to apply. The residency takes place between 10am and 4pm between Monday 18 and Thursday 21 July 2016 with an evening performance on Wednesday 27 July. Applicants must be able to attend all sessions in person at the Museum of Science and Industry.
