CCA Research Associates
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 first cohort of around 5 Research Associates (with at least 2/5 from NI) with a view to expanding in future years following the pilot.
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.
To apply please email a covering letter, current CV, website/links, images/texts and completed Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form with the subject heading 2019/20 RESEARCH ASSOCIATES by 10 October 2019 to email@example.com.
