Orphaned Limbs Collective is a Scotland-based and international artist group incorporating interdisciplinary work with community arts projects. ‘when in roam’ is their new project, which explores displacement, belonging, and co-creates stories with the audience about notions of home.

This opportunity is for a Stove member to work alongside Orphaned Limbs to develop a piece of work that adds a visual component to their residency. The commission approach should be integrated into the development and the final performance presentation of ‘when in roam’ on Friday 27th May.

The main criteria for the commission are experience of interdisciplinary arts projects and the ability to work collaboratively in a responsive way to the residency.
