Margate Pride is inviting applications to participate in the second BRINK residency this summer. BRINK is a seven day residency for LGTBQIA+ artists and creatives working across varied disciplines; where all creative practice is welcome.
BRINK encourages cultivation and generation through collaboration and negotiation.
Where different practices meet and lived experiences are shared, where new worlds appear in the creative collision.
The residency invites participants to explore and respond to notions of the BRINK: being on, coming back from, breaching, going beyond. The BRINK is a destination, physical and psychological, emotional and for some spiritual. It is a threshold site, a verge, a transition in a multitude of possibilities.
LGBTQIA+ lives exist in these liminal spaces, dualistic places that are often paradoxical and othering, impulsive and theoretical.
Using sharing as a vehicle for collaboration, what unknowns will be manifested as the outcome of this exploration and how will the geographical site impact the participants making; as Margate sits on the edge of the British isle, on the Brink of regeneration and coastal dilapidation via socioeconomics and climate change.
