Residencies and Opportunities

Live Opportunities


ATLAS Arts supports a range of artist residencies and fellowships, some with no fixed outcome, others with specific research questions. All aim to build communities around artistic research and to centre the vital importance for artists to have time, money and space to experiment and be slow.

Tobar an Dualchais Residency

An annual residency supported by a fee and production budget, inviting artists to undertake a period of public research in the Tobar an Dualchais digital archive. Open to visual and sound artists with an interest in oral history, archives and sound, this residency aims to foster meaningful engagement with Gaelic culture and heritage, and to build critical and imaginative responses to the complexities of Scottish history and cultural identity.

Tobar an Dualchais is Scotland’s largest online collection of sound recordings, consisting of up to 50,000 recordings of songs, music, history, poetry, traditions and stories collected from across Scotland from the 1930s onwards.

If you are interested in taking part in future residencies, or supporting a residency, don't hesitate to get in touch.
