Radar is an innovative programme of digital artists' residencies in public libraries across the county of Lancashire, in the North West of England.
We are currently seeking an international artist (someone who's main home is outside of the UK), to become Radar's second artist in residence, based at the Harris Library, Preston, Lancashire, UK.
The goal of Radar is to explore relationships between the virtual and physical cultural experiences on offer and potentially available through libraries; to consider the role of libraries as free and accessible public gateways to culture, and the implications of the evolution of digital culture on this core function. Resident artists are expected to do this through engaging collaboratively and creatively with library users and staff.
