In 2019–22 CCA is developing its support of research practice through establishing a series of Associate Researchers. CCA will support researchers by providing access to our archives and networks, with the potential to develop longer-term projects with CCA and will feature on our Research page. In return, Research Associates will present their practice at CCA, bringing new audiences to their work as well as providing the opportunity to meet with the other CCA Research Associates.
This call is for the second cohort of around 5 Research Associates (with at least 2/5 from NI). Following our pilot year the term for Research Associates will be two years and there will be opportunity to interact with previous and future cohorts.
As a Research Associate, you will:
– feature on the CCA Research web page with links to your research
– have an opportunity to present your practice to CCA audiences
– access CCA networks and archives, opportunities to travel and meet people
– have use of CCA Workshop/Library
– CCA will support Research Associates to secure funding for travel/accommodation to join a public Associates Meetup at CCA
– have CCA as a critical friend and potential testing ground for outputs and impacts beyond academia
CCA is welcoming applications from artists with research-based practices, PhD candidates and other researchers based anywhere in the world with areas of interest that have a relevance to our region or programmes, however, we remain open to other applications.
Apply by midnight on Thursday 1 October 2020. To download the application form and find out where to send it, click here to be taken to our Opportunities page.

URGENCIES (2021) is the second instalment of a biennial group exhibition at CCA Derry~Londonderry, which will take place from 16 January–6 March 2021. This exhibition is selected from an open call, seeking to take the temperature of what artists working today consider to be urgent, with each instalment charting shifting concerns and generations of artists over time.
This call seeks artists in the earlier stages of their careers based in Northern Ireland or with a connection to the region, who address urgencies through their work, to apply. The artworks will be selected by CCA’s Director, Catherine Hemelryk and artist Locky Morris. Applications can consist of existing work or proposals for unrealised work.
Each selected artist will receive an exhibition fee, transport and in the case of unrealised works, a modest production budget. CCA will support artists curatorially and help connect artists looking to work with community groups at CCA or offsite.
Applications should demonstrate how the work is urgent and relates to CCA in this location in Derry~Londonderry at this time in history. Consider including information on the presentation of the work, equipment supplied or required and – for unrealised works, performances and pieces working with communities – include practical considerations and outline costs.
Apply by midnight on Thursday 1 October 2020. To download the application form and find out how to apply, click here to be taken to our Opportunities page.
