Unit 7 Residencies

Odyssean
Unusual artist residencies on Orkney

Unit 7 is taking 5 UK artists to Orkney this September to carry out unusual residencies in the landscape, including; a lighthouse, a beach on a golf course, and a bothy full of climbers.
We are working with the Pier Arts Centre, Orkney Islands Council, RSPB, The Papay Ranger to site artists in unsual places and create presentations on Papay and at the Pier Arts Centre.

The project is kindly supported by the Orkney Islands Council- Culture Fund.

Unit 7 hosted 20 artist residencies at our Glasgow space in the Spring/Summer of 2013. In return, residency artists exhibited with our partner organisations across the UK in 2014. Our partner venues were: Pipe Factory Glasgow, Hand in Glove Bristol, and One Thoresby Street Nottingham.

We were also very pleased to have been funded by Creative Scotland for this activity.
