Alongside our artist residencies, which we have been running for several years, in 2019 we will be offering further residencies to support changemakers. These funded residencies are open to individuals or organisations who are working to transform the world into a more beautiful and sustainable place.
By supporting changemakers, Hawkwood aims to inspire and facilitate activism, social and ecological justice, system reorganisation, and new ways of thinking and being, in order to catalyse positive change for the future.
The solutions to the societal, cultural and environmental challenges we face are bound to come from outrageous thinkers.
Based in a beautiful surroundings near Stroud, in south west England, Hawkwood’s change-maker residency program supports:
of new work
of existing work
Our residencies offer a period of creative incubation, where change makers can focus entirely on the creative process away from the demands of everyday life within a held and relaxing environment. The applicant can use the residency for his or her own purposes according to their creative discipline and project.
The residency invites activists, artists, practitioners, and others whose work is grounded in:
Social Justice & Equity
In 2018 we launched our crowdfunding campaign #LostPicasso to help fund our residencies. This was completed in just 32 days and raised £7,027, plus another £5,000 through the Arts Council. A big thank you to our 148 supporters, we are very grateful for your sponsorship. If you would like to help us continue our efforts towards creating real change, through social justice, environmental activism and innovation, we would love to hear from you.
Change-makers are provided with full bed and board and a working space. If appropriate, we offer the opportunity to showcase work as part of our events programme, and we can host informal exhibitions.
We have a huge range of creative and inspiring events: focus on movement and creativity with yoga or an art workshop, get involved in social change, reconnect with nature, learn about emotional healing and presencing, or join us for a poetry, storytelling, theatre work, classical music, woodwork, blacksmithing or for an embroidery course.Read More
