SaltSpace is excited to offer a new paid residency for it's members!
Members are invited to apply to be selected for a collaborative residency, bringing together two or three artists from different creative backgrounds to collaborate on a project which culminates in an exhibition/product/film/workshop, currently this would take digital form with the chance of a physical outcome if possible.
This SaltSpace Members-only opportunity is ideal for artists who are currently needing a new perspective, challenge or inspiration to take their work in a new direction. It is an opportunity for members to engage with each other while also bridging the gap between different specialisms and mediums.

Reading Circle On Decolonisation
“In the Autumn of 2020, members of the public and SaltSpace community gathered in an online reading circle centred on practices of decolonisation in relation to place and architecture. In each of the 6 sessions, guided by Civic Soup, participants read aloud in-turn from scripts, essays and autoethnographies. Base texts focused on the settler-colonial present and its residues in Glasgow’s built environment, refugee architectures of temporary permanence, ecofeminist perspectives on land use and cultivation, and architectural legacies of imperialism in non-Western geographies.
