What is the difference between the domestic residency and the online residency?
The main difference between the two residencies is that the domestic residency involves a one month residence period in London, UK. Here we offer a place to live and work on a new body of research.
The 11:11 Online residency is accessed from your computer screen and encourages residents to explore and share a new body of research via our online platform. 11:11 Online focuses on questions around the intersection of art, technology and accessibility.
Can international artists apply?
The 11:11 Online residency is open to all artists both national and international. The 11:11 domestic residency is open to all artists based outside London. Both national and international. We can offer support on visa applications if necessary.
Can you apply as a collective/duo/collaboration?
Collectives and other collaborative practices can apply for the 11:11 Online Residency programme only. Due to lack of space the domestic residency can only accommodate individuals. We do however, very much encourage collaborations between 11:11 residents and local practitioners. If alternative living arrangements can be made for your collaborators we are happy to consider collective proposals.
How does the fee work for a collective/duo/collaboration?
Sadly, we can currently only offer our fixed fee and travel budget per artist which would have to be split if collaborating.
How many residencies take place at once?
Only one residency takes place at once.
Do you give preference to certain mediums?
We do not give preference to certain mediums, however the residency does not offer studio space so we encourage research based projects.
Do you have a list of local organisations/community projects that you can organise encounters with/or have direct partnerships?
We are always seeking out new partnerships and collaborators. Organisations we currently have a direct relationship with are Kingsgate Project Space, Glass House London, The NewBridge Project, HOXTON 253 Art Project Space.
If i have prior commitments during the residency period, is it okay for me to leave for a couple of days?
Yes you can. You are also free to use your time to explore other areas of the UK if relevant to your work.
Will there only be one artist selected from open calls?
Yes, only one resident is selected from our open calls unless stated otherwise. We do tend to keep a small number of shortlisted proposals archived for possible future opportunities. We will notify you if so.
Final presentation - what format can this take?
The 11:11 Online presentation always happen online/virtually. We encourage experimental formats that act as a moment of feedback, a testing out of a new idea and engaging with an audience publicly. 11:11 Online presentations have been extremely varied. Example of projects include online publications, screenings, a radio show, discussion groups via whatsapp, chat boxes, live streamed performance.
The 11:11 domestic residency presentations happen in person with one of our partner organisation, our home or an alternative space that fits your project. The presentation should act as a moment of reflection and an opportunity to gain feedback on your research. We are not interested in a conventional exhibition format but in testing out new ideas and engaging with an audience. Examples of previous final presentations include public readings, film screening, lectures, performances, discussion groups and workshops.
Is there wheelchair access to the accommodation?
Unfortunately the residency accommodation is based on the second floor of a victorian building and does not have a lift or wheelchair access.
What costs are covered by the residency?
Our 2022 programme is kindly supported by Arts Council England. The grant will help us support artists by offering fees, growing relationships with new and existing collaborators and develop professionally as a valuable arts initiative focussing predominantly on queer and female artists. We offer a fee of £500 for domestic residencies + small travel contribution of £150 and a fee of £250 for our online residency programme. This fee goes towards research and the delivery of a public outcome at the end of the residency. During domestic residencies we offer free housing, including a single bedroom, private bathroom and shared kitchen and living/work space in 11:11 founders Alex & Giulia's home.
Do you have any additional budget available towards travel for international artists?
We can currently only cover up to £150 for travel.
11:11 Online residency offers free use of our 11:11 Online residency webpage, and zoom and instagram account if relevant.
