Scope and Content

Forms recording information on applications for Breathe residencies in 2005 used in the selection process. 

All of the digital files within this series have been documented and retained, but only the forms relating to successful candidates appear on the catalogue due to Data Protection legislation. 

Record Resource Extent

630.5 KB (3 folders)


The records have been arranged into folders following how they were originally arranged at creation reflecting the type of proposal from the artists:
  • Audience Development
  • Research and others
  • Studio based
The subfolders further arrange the files into proposals from UK and International artists. 


These records were retained to document the procedures for the selection of resident artist at the Centre. 

The record set represents: 'Staff Folders\David Hancock\Breathe descriptions 2005' which was originally stored in a 2006 back-up of the Centre main file system. The folder was transferred to the 'Breathe folders' accession (ACC/2021/1) as it is believe this was a later back-up of the same folder. The metadata of the files record that they were originally saved to 'C:\Documents and Settings\artists\My Documents\Breathe descriptions' possibly on a PC managed by the Residency Coordinator. The current file structure appears to have been created at this point.
