THE GAME CHALLENGE 2015 // OPEN CALL

THE GAME CHALLENGE 2015 // OPEN CALL
More than $25,000 in prizes and discounts!

The IFCC is announcing an open call for The Game Challenge 2015.
We invite all creatives to submit their works from 12 January 2015 until midnight 2 March 2015.

WHAT IS “THE GAME”?

“It’s a totally crazy game where they’ve combined all sorts of game styles and in which you can be anything you want: a human, a monster, an object or natural occurrence. It’s full of unexpected situations like becoming Donald Duck’s evil twin, fighting alongside Gandalf against tribe of plastic chairs. You can drive a car drunk or be a drunk car.”

“The Game” is the name of the game. Like – Dog the dog. But why such a name? Because it’s supposed to be the game of all games, where all known visual styles and types of gameplay meet and where set rules are broken.

HOW COME YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF IT?
In fact this game doesn’t yet exist and the quote you just read is just one construct out of an endless amount of possible experiences that will be provided by the Game. Boonika started developing “The Game” concept almost five years ago, at the same time when Boonar Studio was formed. ‘The Game’ should be both a never-ending game project and an educational platform that gathers professionals and enthusiasts from the fields of art and the entertainment industry. “The Game” project will merge some of the popular genres, visually and conceptually. Before it becomes a real game, if it ever does, first it will be a big on-line/on-site workshop. By working on “The Game” many experts (concept artists, designers, game developers, programmers, script writers…) will teach others through their created content. We welcome all approaches regardless of style. Photorealism, cel-shaded, exaggerated, abstract. Anything goes. This makes no sense? Wrong, in this game everything makes sense. Especially nonsense. Is it even possible to create such game? Well, it will be a challenge.

Since it is just a concept, not a finished product, we invite you to join this challenge and help us create The Game. While doing so you can win tickets for the IFCC festival and other prizes!

For all additional information about the challenge, who can participate, with what kind of works, who are the judges, what are the prizes and so on visit: http://ifcc-croatia.com/the-game-2015/

2015 Triangle Artists' Workshop: Michael Fried and Other Visitors Confirmed and Application Deadline is Extended

Triangle is currently accepting applications for our 2 week intensive Artists’ Workshop. The Triangle Artists’ Workshop began in 1982 to bring 30 international and U.S.-based artists into the New York countryside to make art intensely together for two weeks straight. Artists work side-by-side, eat meals together, and tirelessly exchange ideas. The workshop is known for its intensity of dialogue, surprising experimental quality of work produced, and amazing community it generates. Read more about founder Anthony Caro’s vision for the very first workshop here: http://www.nytimes.com/1982/07/23/arts/an-upstate-farm-where-artists-grow.html

Triangle’s 2015 Workshop will take place from August 23–September 6 at Salem Art Works in rural upstate New York. Confirmed artists and critics who will be visitors to the 2015 Workshop include Willard Boepple, Michael Fried, Thomas Nozkowski, Joyce Robins, Mia Westerlund, and Karen Wilkin, with more to be announced.

International and U.S.-based artists working in any medium or discipline may apply. Studio spaces with 24-hour access as well as two weeks’ shared accommodation and food are provided. Communal meals, visits from curators and critics, outings to nearby cultural institutions, and public events including open studios are organized.

Finalists are chosen by a jury of artists and curators. Ideal candidates show significant promise and dedication to their work and are at a moment in which a two-week intensive residency program and international community of artists will be particularly meaningful and transformative to their practice.

Participants are responsible for their own travel, visa and materials and may apply for limited need-based scholarships in order to assist with these costs. Triangle’s staff will work closely with accepted artists to suggest other outside funding opportunities they may be eligible for.

Since we’ve just confirmed a new, exciting lineup of visitors, we will extend the Workshop application deadline until February 15th at midnight (EST). All applicants will be notified of final decisions by April 5, 2015. Online application form is here: https://triangleartsassociation.submittable.com/submit/34616

We encourage artists to engage with their audience in a manner specific to their creative goals, while using Recess as a studio, exhibition space, or experimental platform to generate new work.

I am looking for artists, philosophers, video makers, designers etc. based in the UK and mainland Europe to submit proposals for a temporary art exhibition about memory loss that will take place at UCA – University for the Creative Arts, New Dover Rd, Canterbury, Kent CT1 3AN, during September 2015.

What if we start losing our memories? How is it possible to recreate a sense of memory loss?

“Memory Or The First Shadows Of [Her] Mind” is an exhibition about the relationship between the idea of memory loss and the audience. The goal of the exhibition is not to try to explain memory loss in a scientific way, but trying to take the viewer to experiment and test the complexity of mental associations through the collapse of meaning and the reconstruction of memory.

All projects should be of high quality, innovative and challenging as well as bringing a new point of view to this concept (i.e. pieces of artwork, storytelling, short films, pictures, poetry…).I am also interested in receiving proposals for one - off events such as performance, workshops, and artists' talks.

The designer and curator Alessandra Chiericato will curate the exhibition. You might be asked to come to England to meet the other participants and collaborate altogether.

If you would like to submit a proposal, please send the following material to alessandra.chiericato@gmail.com

What About Art International Artists' Residency, India (July 2015 to October 2015)

Residency period: Between July 2015 to October 2015

What About Art? (WAA) is an important arts hub in the contemporary art scene in India. What About Art international artists' residency aims to facilitate arts practice for artists and curators, provide a platform and opportunity to network with the arts community in Mumbai and engage in dialogues on visual arts practices. We collaborate with a number of art residencies in India to help the artists engage with a wider network.

We believe that space and a stimulating atmosphere are the most important aspects of arts practice and ensure these through the residency. Artists are often unable to work in cities due to high living costs. This residency is an opportunity for artists to work in the dynamic and emerging art scene in Mumbai.

What About Art? offers four studios and accommodation to professional artists and curators working with the medium of video, installation, painting, sound, performance, sculpture and research.

Selection:
The selection of artists is done by a jury comprising international arts experts.
Selection is done on merit and artistic excellence.
Artists from all stages of their career are considered equally.

Note:
The residency is offered for a nominal fee for the studio and accommodation. An artist can apply individually, through an NGO & organisation or embassy. Travel, art material, food, insurance and visa costs are not covered by the residency.

Open Call for residencies in March-April and May 2015 at CeRCCa - Barcelona countryside

Since the beginning of CeRCCa´s Residency Program in 2009 our aim has been to facilitate and develop research and creative projects that reflect upon and interact with the local community. During these 5 years more than 70 artists and researchers have been selected to be part of CeRCCa. Through the residency and the collaboration with the local community they have developed projects in different disciplines ranging from video, photography and performance to street art, creative workshops and interventions in the public space. To celebrate all these projects and as a homage to the artists, researchers and all the people and organizations that have collaborated with CeRCCa we have created ‘5th CeRCCa Anniversary Publication’.

After the evaluation of the first five years of CeRCCa and thanks to many conversations with other professionals and previous residents we are happy to announce the new venture of CeRCCa. This new venture will be developed through the restructuring of CeRCCa’s artists and researchers residencies.

The New Artists and Researchers Residency Project will be structured as follows

• The main feature of the new strategy will be to promote exchange and reflection with no obligation of producing a concrete body of work or having a final exhibition. In a time where artists and researchers are under pressure to produce and justify the validity of their professions with tangible outcomes we strongly believe that to have time for dialogue and experimentation is much needed. We believe that the perfect framework to do so is to spent time and work together through the artist in residency methodology.

• We believe that the new residency format will be a time for you to work in your own development as well as building up your professional career through networking and knowledge sharing. CeRCCa will help on that process facilitating contacts and visits in accordance to your interests. In order to facilitate networking and knowledge sharing CeRCCa offers an apartment in Barcelona so to have time to meet, promote your work and learn from other professionals and organizations. The fee for 1 night accommodation in CeRCCa’s apartment in Barcelona is 20E and the maximum stay is 1 night a week. Alternative overnight accommodation can be also arranged.

• The new residency format will be structured through stays of minimum 1 month always starting and ending on the 1st or 15th of each month (those have to be the dates of arrival and departure). For 2015 the time span of the residency period can go from the 15th March to the 15th November.

• CeRCCa will facilitate accessibility to our program with a reduced artists fee. The artist fee for 1 month residency is 500E. The artist fee includes single room with double bed, shared 40 sq studio with 1 more artist or researcher, running costs as well as advice, resources and networking information and contacts.
The selection of applications will be done every 2 months by the coordinators of CeRCCa.

• For residencies of 2 months or longer and if the artist or researcher is interested, CeRCCa will consider organizing an exhibition or public presentation at the end of the residency period. To ensure the best curatorial strategy and optimize the exhibition or public presentation a committee of experts will consider the candidate’s application and exhibition proposal. The same process goes for talks, workshops and other events. Priority will be given to site-specific projects of any discipline and format.

We are looking forwards to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,

CeRCCa Team

1 – 2 month residencies for artists living & working anywhere else than in Finland, between June 2015 – March 2016.

Theme for the residencies is ‘Vaasa 20X0’. With this Platform wants to create a stronger presence in the city of Vaasa, innovate cultural life and improve it’s own artistic practice. We aim to establish physical places and ongoing events, where sub-cultures could manifest themselves and where high- and low-culture could meet.

We would like to invite guests from different fields of art, and team them up with the people involved in Platform and Vaasa. We expect our guests on the one hand to produce utopian ideas that will inspire for more research and, on the other hand, very practical projects which will be directly noticeable in the daily life of Vaasa.

We offer the artist a stay in Vaasa for 1 to 2 months. A studio space, accommodation, travel expenses, and a working grant are provided. We also offer a small production budget, which the artist may reimburse by presenting original receipts of purchases, specifically connected to the current project.

TRANSFORMATION Online exhibition project

We are a student triplet from Lithuania. We are young, thus, undergoing various transitive states with particular intensity: from a womb to the world, from a child to a teenager – from it, into a desperate youth struggling to prove one’s worthiness in the world by all means. Apparently, all human life – treating it from an individual or evolutionary perspective – is an on-going transformation of bodies and states. How this phenomenon is affected by civilisation, art, social life, day and night, relations with the transcendent spaces, dreams and in the end – us ourselves? We want to invite you to analyse the topic from your point of view “visually”. To dig deep into own conversions. In fact, we most often concentrate on the result only. Possibly, the whole beauty of development lies in the process – the mediate state between the departure line and the finish. Or maybe in the short silent pause, as before the great explosion; or even the whole Jonh Cage’s “4’33”…

Open to all artists worldwide. Original works in all media. All artworks including
alternative media, paintings, sculpture, prints, drawing, photographs, papier collé,
assemblage, installation, digital manipulation, ceramics, fiber, mixed media and all
other (video stills acceptable).

Please send your short cv, statement and Jpegs of artworks (300 dpi preferred).
ONE email no larger than 20MB.

January 6, 2015 Online Project Exhibition debuts worldwide
After January 6, 2015 Exhibition remains online.

THE VOYERIST IS SEARCHING FOR ARTISTS!

The Voyerist is a project started by Michela Alessandrini and Ekaterina Shcherbakova in 2014. It gathers anecdotes about art and offers an intimate look at the heart of artistic creation. It aims to provoke a wider discussion about art and reveal the voyeuristic attitude of current art trend, taking a stand towards a full assumption of art system’s codes. Far from a gossip interest, The Voyerist does not seek for shocking confessions, nor for artist's predominance over the artwork - it rather believes in curiosity as a way to mediate.
The Voyerist is searching for artists willing to tell anecdotes indirectly related to their practice. Contributors may participate by emailing a video, a text, a sound record, an image, etc. to thevoyerist@gmail.com. Only contributions fitting max 100-150 words for text, 3 minutes for audio/video will be accepted. As for the texts, the language is up to the contributors - as long as an English translation is provided. Selected artists will be notified upon reception of the application (that must include artist's portfolio, contribution and cover image).

“A Spiritual Retreat Just for Artists” (Includes Visual artists, Writers and Composers)

Led by Jessica Feldheim

July 26th - August 4th 2015 in the town of Molyvos, Greece which is on the Island of Lesvos.

Come and join us on a 10-day intimate spiritual retreat, where I will teach you to cultivate a deeper connection with the DIVINE and the ONENESS OF ALL THINGS. The time has come for us to step into our power and lead the way. As artists we have an amazing window of opportunity to become conduits of hope, change and transformation, while we help shift the planetary consciousness that we are all experiencing in the world today. Why not affect everything around us in a more positive way. I will teach you how to transform your artistic practice into a Sacred Devotional Healing Art Practice.

On the retreat I will teach you the tools that you can use to create more LOVE, LIGHT and PEACE in the world right now, while simultaneously working on your Art. Through this open, yet powerful, and exciting limitless new horizon we can first transform our inner mind, thus consequently transform the world.
What we will practice on the retreat (group and private):

• Releasing into the healing waters of the Mediterranean, and take in the beauty of this inspirational region.
• Accessing our blocks / burdens and letting them go
• Meditation and Prayer
• Sensory awareness
• 72 Names of God- A Kabbalistic tool for Enlightenment
• Journaling
• Spiritual time-management
• Remembering the importance of gratitude, ritual, inspiration, day dreaming, and beauty
• Structured work-time
• Fun and sharing
• Sightseeing

In order to attend this retreat there is an application process.
Books we will read on the retreat:
“72 Names of God”, Technology for the Soul, by Yehuda Berg
“The Soul’s Religion”, Cultivating A Profoundly Spiritual Way of Life, by Thomas Moore.

Application Deadline March 1, 2015. There are only 6 -slots open.

More About Jessica: For most of her life Jessica’s desire has been to share her unique gifts and talents with the World: Art, Teaching and Cooking. From the time she completed her MFA from Syracuse University, Jessica knew that she wanted to be placed on a teaching track. She spent the first part of her career educating others in the field of Visual Arts. For all of her life Jessica has been a seeker, and has had many obstacles placed on her path to help her grow, change and transform. She has always put one foot in front of the other, and has never looked back, or settled for the status quo, which ultimately led her to the study of Kabbalah. These mystical yet transformative practices, which she calls “Technology for the Soul”, combined with her fervent commitment to her Art, as well as a strong love for the Mediterranean have guided her to lead “Spiritual Retreats Just for Artists” in the place that she calls “home”.

Getting to the Island of Lesvos and Molyvos
Fly into Mytilini airport (MJT), which is the capital of Lesvos
I have researched flying into Madrid, then take using Olympic Air to fly into Mytilini. We can share resources as the time gets closer.

Getting to Molyvos
To get to Molyvos, you can go by taxi, coach transfer or by bus.
You can get a taxi from outside the airport or pre-book a taxi. The journey takes about 50 minutes to Molyvos. There are several car hire companies based at the airport, but for better deals, pre-book your car, either via your airline or use a search engine on the internet. Taxi costs approx. 60 euros. If you are arriving by charter flight, you may have the option to pay for a seat on the company’s transfer coach. This is usually the cheapest option.There is a bus service from the airport into the capital Mytilini and from there you can get a bus to Molyvos. Please note that there is a fairly limited timetable, with a maximum of four buses a day.

OPEN ART LAB // Artist Residency in Görlitz



ZUKUNFTSVISONEN2015 //

zukünftig:GEMEINSAMKEIT

CALL FOR ARTISTS

OPEN ART LAB – GÖRLITZ IN PROGRESS
Artist Residency – 25th April to 30th May 2015
“ZUKUNFTSVISIONEN2015 – Festival for Contemporary Art“ is looking for Artists in Residence!

The ZUKUNFTSVISIONEN2015 Festival is a voluntary project with a lot of enthusiasm, creativity and courage. It was founded by students in 2007. The concern of the festival is to focus on the low occupancy rate of buildings in Görlitz and to innervate the city with regional and international art.
We appreciate experienced artists as well as those who are at the beginning of their career. Accompanied by music, dance, literature and workshops, there arises a multifaceted program for the inhabitants and guests of Görlitz.

NEW IN 2015:
OPEN ART LAB – GOERLITZ IN PROGRESS // Artist Residency 25 April-30 May

For the first time, we aim to integrate an Artist Residency Program of four weeks into our concept. Four artists or groups of artists will be given the opportunity to live and create in Görlitz for one month.
The aim of the OPEN ART LAB is to deal intensively with the location and the subject of ZUKUNFTSVISIONEN2015:
„zukünftig:GEMEINSAMKEIT“ // “future:TOGETHER”
In this context, we want to focus on the opposites of daily life in the city – and how they can change into similarities.
The base of your art work should be related to the following topics:

- bringing together the young & elderly
demographic change, increasing numbers of older people, and lack of motivation for young people to stay in Görlitz
- strange & familiar
creating a space for integration and acceptance, as in 2015 over 200 asylum-seekers will arrive to stay in Görlitz
- dead building fabric & lively place of inspiration
vacant buildings are a result of demographic change, but at the same time it can offer a space for creative use and evolvement of ideas, dreams and innovation

Our OPEN ART LAB will take place at various locations.
Central point of documentation, information and public meeting will be a transparent container which is placed at one or many different popular locations in the city. In addition to that, we will rent a vacant, glassed shopping gallery as an exhibition- and workspace. The creative process can take place in public – or at least sometimes visible for visitors and inhabitants. Accompanying the artist’s work, there is planned to be a framing program to support the interaction between visitors and artists. Therefore, you are welcome to offer workshops as well as events or live-performances at different places in the city including guests, visitors and casual passers-by.
With this, it is our aim to generate a sense of awareness, interaction, integration and to focus on a public creative process.

During the following festival (23 - 30 May), your work and the work of ten further artists who have been invited to take part in the festival itself will be exhibited in an abandoned house. An accommodation and a budget for your work material (600€) will be provided. We, the ZUKUNFTSVISIONEN2015-Team, will support you by all available means and are dedicated to make your stay a comfortable and successful one. Furthermore, you will receive a pay of 800 Euro for your work and stay at the Residence.

A jury will decide over which applying artists are given the opportunity to take part in the Residency. Our jury consists of one of our team members und four experts:

Verena Andreas, gallery owner, Galerie Module, Dresden
Ulf Großmann, president of Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachen
Hector Solari, curator und artist
Andreas Schanzenbach, CEO Kreativagentur Cromatics, Paint Club
Dresden
Lydia Göbel, team member, BA English Studies and History of Art

Application:

Please send some impressions of your previous work or documentation of your last projects. Furthermore, we would like to receive a (short written) idea how you want to implement our topics in your work, and a short CV, including the most important information about you and your previous work.
Please apply from 17/12/2014 to 01/02/2015 on www.zuvi-festival.de.

Triangle Arts Association Two Week Intensive Artists' Workshop

Triangle is currently accepting applications for our 2 week intensive Artists’ Workshop. The Triangle Artists’ Workshop began in 1982 to bring 30 international and U.S.-based artists into the New York countryside to make art intensely together for two weeks straight. Artists work side-by-side, eat meals together, and tirelessly exchange ideas. The workshop is known for its intensity of dialogue, surprising experimental quality of work produced, and amazing community it generates.

Triangle’s 2015 Workshop will take place from August 23–September 6 at Salem Art Works in rural upstate New York. International and U.S.-based artists working in any medium or discipline may apply. Studio spaces with 24-hour access as well as two weeks’ shared accommodation and food are provided. Communal meals, visits from curators and critics, outings to nearby cultural institutions, and public events including open studios are organized.

Finalists are chosen by a jury of artists and curators. Ideal candidates show significant promise and dedication to their work and are at a moment in which a two-week intensive residency program and international community of artists will be particularly meaningful and transformative to their practice.

Participants are responsible for their own travel, visa and materials and may apply for limited need-based scholarships in order to assist with these costs. Triangle’s staff will work closely with accepted artists to suggest other outside funding opportunities they may be eligible for.

Applications are due by January 15, 2015 at midnight (EST). All applicants will be notified of final decisions by March 5, 2015. Application form can be found here: https://triangleartsassociation.submittable.com/submit/34616

PORTO / Temporary Art Community / Spring 2015

EXPERIMENTAL ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCY TEMPORARY ART COMMUNITY

Right now we still have vacancies for the Spring 2015!

DE LICEIRAS 18 is an experimental, independent project located in a residential house in Porto, Portugal recently transformed into an art space.

We seek for visual artists, designers, conceptual gardeners, experimental writers, sound hunters, performers, philosophers and (...). Ones who are enthusiastic about staying for one month or longer within an exchange based micro-art-community, learn, teach, discuss and break any preconceptions. Who are not afraid to extent barriers between private and public, live and create in the same space. Who are able to take inspiration from both possibilities and impossibilites, obstacles and miracles which creating in such an informal, experimental, no-budget and no-white-box space brings. Ones who will create an elaborated or spontaneous site-specific projects.

There are always 4 to 6 artists in the house and the cat.

SPACE

The DE LICEIRAS 18 is located in a very old, two-story house in Porto, Portugal which seems to organically adapt to the form of the city itself, consisting of no perpendicular lines, with floors sloping and sounds of human and seagulls daily life entering through wooden old windows creating in the interior a constant quasimusical blend of noises. The house is situated in a very particular place, although right in the middle of a triangle created by three most central metro stations: Trindade, Aliados and Bolhão, its entrance stays hidden in a tiny bystreet, overlooked by tourists and bustling with local life. The everyday reality of the bystreet is even more curious due to a very particular combination of the house neighbors, formed by an old shoemaker's workshop, a motorcycle club and a traditional bar. The kitchen and upper toilet of the house face a brothel.

The aim is to connect with the immediate environment of the house and explore borders between private and public by living, creating and exhibiting in one and the same space. The project is addressed to artists from all disciplines who want to spend a month or more, take an active part in the transformation within a temporary interdisciplinary art collective and realize a site-specific project in the house.

You will stay in a private room that you can also use as a studio and exhibition space. You can also create and install your work in any other place within the house, including bathrooms, kitchen and corridors and use the silkscreen workshop. During the process we will collectively decide on the form and exact dates of presenting projects created within the residency.

During your stay you will be assisted with working and personal needs and introduced to local society, cultural life of Porto and other art projects.

THE HOUSE FACILITIES

▸ 4 private bedrooms/ateliers of approx. 20 m² each
▸ DIY silkscreen printing and cyanotype workshop
▸ Fully equipped little kitchen and dining room
▸ 2 bathrooms and one small toilet
▸ Storage room / can be used as a darkroom
▸ Wi-Fi connection

We have a little garden in the Musas community gardens that you are also welcome to use as a studio or a venue for your project.

Portuguese houses generally do not have heating system - and so does not ours. Therefore it may get quite cold in the winter. We usually deal with it just wearing very warm clothes indoor and carrying hot water bottles around but on a special request we may arrange a heater.

IMPORTANT: All the resident artists are expected to equally participate in maintaining the house clean and participate in household works.

COSTS

The project has non-profit character and is artist-run and self-funded. Each participant will pay the monthly contribution of 220 euro which includes the rent, electricity, gas, water, internet, toilet paper, utensils, eco-friendly cleaning detergents, clean sheets and laundry twice per month. You will need to cover your own trip to Porto, food and materials. In case you come as a couple / friends / collective and share the same room the cost per person is 170 euro. There are opportunities of organizing fund-rising events or some cost reduction in exchange for community works.

The latest one month before coming you need to transfer via PayPal 50 euro deposit to secure your residency place. The deposit will be fully refunded on the day your residency is finished, provided you left the space and equipment tidy and complete.

There is no application fee.

APPLICATION

We will review applications on a rolling basis so we advice you to apply as soon as possible.

Please send anything you find relevant to show your interest areas and previous works to deliceiras18 [at] gmail.com. Make sure you include a short text explaining your motivation to stay and work in this particular space. Optionally you can include a short description of a project you wish to realize here.

After receiving sufficient applications we will carry out Skype interviews with shortlisted candidates.

International Fellowship-Program for Art and Theory 2015-2016 at Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen

Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen invites visual and media artists, art critics, theorists, and curators to apply for a fellowship in 2015–2016. Candidates can apply for one semester (October 5, 2015 – February 14, 2016 or February 15, 2016 – June 26, 2016). The fellowship can be split across two semesters.
The closing date for submissions is January 30, 2015 (postmark).

With its Fellowship Program for Art and Theory, Büchsenhausen promotes internationally relevant artistic production, research, and discussion in the region of Tyrol. The program is based on the idea of generating and maintaining a context for production and discussion, in which artists and theorists can connect and reflect on international art and societal discourses in relation to local topics and issues. At the same time, it affords the opportunity for an artistic laboratory of experimentation, where new artistic practices and strategies may be tried out.

The program's aims are:
* to promote and relay a critical, socially relevant production of knowledge in art and art theory;
* to produce, through the fellowship projects, qualified discourses on art and society within the local and global contexts;
* to enable the transfer of knowledge between the field of art and other publics outside the art context;
* to facilitate the exchange between cultural producers in the visual arts and beyond (creating a network of experts).

The program combines the advantages of a residency with the possibilities of a postgraduate, non-university lectureship on the basis of an open, non-formalized structure. In terms of content, the program addresses a worldwide public made up of professionals in the fields of contemporary art, architecture, art and media theory, and criticism.

The fellows are selected by a jury of experts following an open call for applications. They come to Büchsenhausen for one or two semesters to work on realizing their proposed undertaking, and accompany this process with public events. For this purpose, Büchsenhausen offers a monthly stipend, a production budget, working spaces, free lodging, and artistic and technical advice.

The conveyance and discussion of the fellow’s own work occurs parallel to the development of the individual proposals. The public events take place in series. The focus of these series of events is determined by the respective emphases of the various fellows' works. Within the framework of this discursive format, the fellows (or their guests) can present various points in their investigations, open up their works-in-progress to critical discussion, interact with experts who they invite, work through content with the public, and/or try out new ways of working. The fellowship year ends with a group exhibition curated by the director of the Fellowship Program.

For former and current fellows and their projects please visit http://buchsenhausen.at/index.php?newlang=eng (Menu item "Fellows")

For the full text of the call, more information on the application procedure, financial questions, etc. please consult our website or contact us at: office@buchsenhausen.at, phone +43 512 278627, fax -11.

Call for Proposals Nomadic Village 2015, May - August

Northern Italy, Cerkno/Slovenia, Northern Balkans, Sofia/Bulgaria, Austria
Deadline for applications: 30th of January 2015!

Since 2009 the Nomadic Village has been a 2 weeks annual settlement of artists on the road. In 2015 it will become a swarm of people on the move for 4 months, travelling across several European countries and stopping along the way to establish 3 different Villages. The artists on the road are invited to propose projects for the entire trip, or parts of it. They will determine their own travelling schedules and use GPS tracking devices to create spontaneous meetings on the road. The Villages are conceived as meeting points as well as production and presentation opportunities.

For 2015, all the artists in charge of projects should be equipped with mobile Internet, and will be asked to update their whereabouts daily. Participants will have to mark the good spots to stay, document them and exchange with the other artists on the road. These exchanges will create a map that will expand over the years and will be provided to the Nomadic Village participants of future editions.

The Nomadic Village is run by Captain Klaus (lead artist and founder) and tinski (directing artist) from On The Road Productions (ORP), Austria.

[Artists on the road]
Artists, researchers, activists, hackers, those who intentionally displace themselves to seek encounters that not only influence their work but form it; those who work without borders and constantly respond to situations, places and people along their journey, those who have an autonomous working and living mobile setup

WOOD/SODA/FIRE/BANFF at The Banff Centre

Wood…...pots..….ideas……bricks.……fire……collaboration.…..inspiration….mountains…..
As technological changes have gradually infiltrated most aspects of modern life, both for benefit and detriment, some things remain robustly human and process-based and fast-tracking is counter-productive. In the world of ceramics, already a very time-centric occupation, wood firing remains a bastion of thoughtful, concentrated, measured activity. Go too quickly in any part of the journey and the results will underwhelm. Focusing too much on outcome without proper attention to process can lead to disappointment, if not disaster. Deep learning and satisfaction are just two of the results of such engagement - not to mention the comradery, collaborative spirit and decision making which fuel it.
This residency is an opportunity to work alongside other wood and soda fire enthusiasts; to create, share ideas, techniques and inspirations, and in turn, be inspired by the stunning surroundings of the Rocky Mountains which we will take time to discover and explore. We will fire The Banff Centre’s venerable Noborigama kiln - designed and built three decades ago -around which a host of memorable conversations, art work, challenges and celebrations have emerged and occurred.
The residency is best suited to emerging and established artists with wood and/or soda firing experience who want to push their work in new creative directions.

Program structure and benefits:
Shared studio with 24-hour access
A community of artists working together
Studio visit with faculty
Public lectures by faculty, visiting artists, and guests
Technical assistance for wood and salt kiln usage
Access to The Banff Centre Paul D. Fleck Library and Archives
Plus membership at the Sally Borden Fitness and Recreation Centre

Critical Art Writing Ensemble

The Banff International Curatorial Institute's Critical Art Writing Ensemble will explore art writing as an aspect of literature – exhibition catalogues can expand into short novels and stories; reviews into haikus and soliloquies that can transcend the ephemerality of quotidian journalism. Together, participants will contemplate and compose writing that will have the wetness of literature: narrative and poetic potential, emotional/political/spiritual/intellectual engagement, creative approaches to form, and highly distinctive points of view backboned by serious analysis.
There will be time for the solitude that writing requires, and regular meetings to discuss historical and contemporary works of literature and criticism that speak directly to the challenge posed above. Our readings may include texts by Jorge Luis Borges, Susan Sontag, Robert Smithson, Bruce Hainley, Chris Kraus, David Foster Wallace, Henry Miller, Dave Hickey and others.
Participants are encouraged to exchange writing and ideas among each other, and meet with the faculty to discuss their individual projects. This program is open to art writers and curators who seek poetic expression, and desire a little space and a committed community in which to work.

Program benefits:
A community of peers working together
Public lectures by faculty, visiting artists and guests
Readings and discussion groups
Access to The Banff Centre Paul D. Fleck Library and Archives

Kunst Kraft Werk Open Call for Exhibitions in 2016

Kunst Kraft Werk Open Call for Exhibitions in 2016
KUNST KRAFT WERK OPEN CALL 2016:
Entry Deadline: January 1, 2015
Notification by email: February 15, 2015

The Kunst Kraft Werk is pleased to announce our second open call for exhibition proposals, for the 2016 program. Qualified candidates include international and local curators, corporate and cultural institutions, museums, individual artists, group initiatives, and collectives, working in all mediums, with a preference for interdisciplinary practice. Both contemporary and art historical exhibitions are welcomed. We are especially interested in projects that are accompanied by a program of activities, artist’s talks, workshops, or lectures. The number, duration and spacing of the exhibitions are left to the discretion of the KKW, as the space is used for multiple purposes throughout the year. If the entry is a group project, one person must be chosen from that group to represent it and act as a mediator.

Our exhibition space and grounds are particularly well-suited for large scale sculpture, both outdoor and indoor, as well as installation, video projection, and performance. A module wall system allows for two-dimensional works to be shown as well, and for the interior space to be adjusted for each exhibition’s needs. Since our space is currently under renovation, it is important to state that our design objective is not a white cube, however our intention is to maintain the industrial aesthetic of the former gasworks, while encorporating a new lighting/heating/sound system, stage, storage area, restaurant, and beer garden.

Terms/Conditions:
The selected projects will be required to sign a contract with the KKW, agreeing to respect all the obligations inherent to his/her function and especially the specific fullfilment of the project concept. The KKW will provide their exhibition space; staffing during exhibition opening times; technical assistance for install and destall; professional graphic design, printing costs and advertisement/promotion of the exhibition and opening events; professional photographing of the exhibition; translation of texts into German; insurance of the artworks while in the KKW; administrative correspondence, support, and organization; and inclusion into the annual catalog. For the selected projects, depending on the necessities of his/her project and relation to the KKW, responsibilities may comprise of, among others: the selection and localization of the works; the supervision of the relations with the artists and loaners, and overseeing the production of works; the participation in writing press material and, where appropriate, the selection of activities surrounding the exhibition and the editorial direction of their project chapter in our annual catalog (writing at least one text in English).

The Art Director works directly with each project to apply for funding, meaning that the KKW applies for institutional funding per project both in Germany and the home countries of the participating artists. The guest curator, institution, or artists are expected to apply for funding as well. Funding each exhibition is a TEAM EFFORT between the KKW and guest project. The KKW does not pay artist/curator/writer fees. We do not pay production costs of artworks. We do not pay for any additional publications; travel and/or hotel expenses of the participants; visa application fees and customs fees. We apply for funding for all of these items, however do not take personal responsibility for them.

All work, unless indicated that it is not for sale (NFS), will be available for purchase during the exhibitions. The KKW will retain a commission on all artwork sold during the exhibition, and will provide a contract detailing the conditions/responsibilities of all parties.

How to apply:
Please fill out this automatic form. Due to the high volume of applications we now require a 10 euro Jury Fee per application. Once you hit the submit button, the Paypal donate button will appear below. When you press this donate button, you will be automatically redirected to the Paypal link. Your submission is only complete once the Jury fee has been paid. This application fee in non-refundable.

CALL for WORKS - Image Talks symposium and exhibition - may 2015

‘Image Talks’: an exhibition and a symposium about new ways of thinking (about) images.

Starting Date: May 7, 2015

Venues: different locations in the Hasselt (BE) area: a.o. ‘Oude gevangenis’ (campus Hasselt University), CIAP (gallery), De Mijlpaal (gallery), PBL (public library)...
Organised by FRAME (PXL-MAD---faculty & Hasselt University)

FRAME is an association of makers/researchers from the fields of graphic design, the fine arts and (interior) architecture. FRAME cherishes the value and necessity of the fragile connection between discipline and discourse: a largely uncharted territory. The FRAME symposium Image Talks wants to explore unconventional forms of knowledge that create new ways of thinking space and image. We are not only interested in works of art and architecture or in cultural theory: we also focus on the specific poetics and methods that allow a work to emerge. The artistic practice is itself a substantial part of the research, as a way of thinking in and through images and spaces.

CALL FOR ‘IMAGES’

For the exhibition ‘Image Talks’, we are looking for ‘images’ that speak out and dare to confront contemporary visual culture.
We are looking for makers, writers, artists, graphic designers, (interior) architects who use images in an inventive way to create, to think. ‘Images’ is understood here in the broadest sense of the word. We are not only interested in images that can literally be ‘framed’, like paintings, drawings, pictures, but also in sculptures, installations, interiors, buildings, landscapes, literary texts, and even metaphors and philosophical concepts.

Practical info:

--- The exhibition will be held on different locations, allowing for all kinds of spatial installations/works. It will run for a couple of weeks, depending on the location.
--- More specific arrangements will be made after the selection (February 1, 2015)

Are you interested?

We would like to receive your proposals (max. 500 words + portfolio + ‘images’) before January 15, 2015 by e-mail: imagetalks@frame-research.be

ARTISTS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT RESIDENCIES Leitrim Sculpture Centre, Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim, Rep of Ireland

Leitrim Sculpture Centre is offering a series of Professional Development Residencies (PDR’s) for artists based in Ireland and Internationally. The aim of the programme is to provide artists with the technical resources for practical research towards the development of new work and to support creative development through experimental methods and engagement across different material processes.

PDR’s are new in the sense that, unlike the Residency in Context strand, they support the creative practice of the artist without the need for them to produce an exhibition, or specific outcome, at the end or during the period.

ARTISTIC RESOURCES
Leitrim Sculpture Centre provides a wide range of open-planned production spaces each dedicated to different processes in Stone, Metal Casting and Fabrication, Foundry and Forge, Hot Glass, Ceramics, Woodwork, Digital Media, Traditional Print (etching and silkscreen) and Moldmaking.

Within its two large buildings LSC supports 16 private studios, 3 residency studios and a superb gallery. The Archive and Research Centre provides technical information on all the processes undertaken at the Centre as well as links to artists groups, social and environmental projects along with useful information on local resources, history and landscape.

This combination of technical, spatial, geographic and research resources offers an ideal situation from which artists can secure the freedom to explore a specific medium or combination of material process of their own choosing.

For more information and guidelines of how to apply e.mail

ABOUT THE VENUE:

Barisal:
Barisal is one of the seven administrative divisions of Bangladesh. Located in the south-central part of the country. In 1797 the area was established as Bakerganj District but later renamed as Barisal District. The district was upgraded into a municipality in 1876. The Greater Barisal region (Barisal District along with five other neighboring districts) was created as Barisal Division on 1 January 1993. It is bounded by Dhaka division on the north, the Bay of Bengal on the south, Chittagong division on the east and Khulna division on the west. The administrative capital, Barisal city, lies in the Ganges (Padma) River delta on an offshoot of the Arial Khan River(Kirtonkhola). Barisal division is criss-crossed by numerous rivers that earned her the nickname 'Dhan-Nodi-Kaal, Ei tine Barisal' (rice, river and canal built Barisal). Barisal town once called as ‘Venice of Bengal’ had nearly 600 pond and water bodies, more than 22 canals in pre-liberation period and 17 canals in post-liberation period in and around the city and Kirtankhola River was more than four kilometers wide in 50 years back.
Besides these beauties Barisal is full of old architectural structures which contains a lot of untold history of time. Many British structures have been refurbished and many are left abundant. History of some of those will be shared with the participants during the exchange program.

Lakhutia Village:
It’s a historical village, about 5/6 miles from Barisal town. About a 40 minute journey from the city area. It was one of the major places where the brutal killing took place during the 1950 riot in Barisal. On Feb 15,1950 Muslims started looting and burning Hindu houses and killed more than thousands of people in that area.

Lakhutia Zamindar House:
The house is simply known as the house of the king in the village. It was made by king Raj Chandra Roy almost 300 years ago. The famous six kilometers long Rayer Khal (Rayer canal) was excavated from Lakutia Zamindar Bari in early-British period and joined with Jail Khal(jail canal) in Natun Bazaar (new market) area of the city. Now it is an abundant building standing alone. The side area of the building is used by the local agricultural department as seed storage. The main building is standing as ruins. The front roads have very old Hindu monastery on one side and small temples on the back area of the land too. As a whole the huge area contains a lot of dimensions of old structures. The original history and memories related to this house is almost lost and hard to find. But extend history while the partition time can be found and some members have been also located in some areas on the both side of the border, which can help finding the lost history and memories.

Transportation Direction:

The aim of the program is to accommodate and sustain an organic environment for the artists to fall in rhythm with the natural sphere and project their insights amongst fellow artists, ultimately creating a reverberating atmosphere to inspire further projects.

“URONTO” works toward documenting the relation of time and space and the changes of spaces with time, through art practice of any discipline. Participants of each project are invited to portray the history, stories, myth, values or anything about the architectural structure or house or building chosen for every episode.

We do believe that every form of art is inter-related and also it has its own prosper strength individually indeed. Therefore we invite artist of any creative discipline to participate, so that we can have a unique documentation of the theme in enormous variation of artistic media. Where a writer might produce literary pieces or an article; an artist might prepare a painting or an installation piece while a musician may create a tune/number based on mood, history and atmosphere of the place.

INTENTIONS & FUNCTIONS:
1. Cultivate the creative genre among all
2. Providing a wider field to creative intentions
3. Encourage collective work and snub struggle
4. Documenting the Undocumented histories
5. Sharing the histories in the international field
6. Creating responsible aesthetical practice and growing awareness
7. Putting any and all discipline under one roof
8. Developing local art concepts in the rural
9. Inspiring work with founding natural materials
10. Developing the connection between human and nature
The exchange program is truly a refreshing time for the participants where we do provide them a very natural atmosphere to live in with nature where they can make themselves free from regular hectic life and dive into the beauty of nature. But we must include that nature is beautiful and refreshing but not luxurious so all participants should have a clear understanding of that. Expectations of luxurious living will end up highly disappointing and people habituated with luxury are barely encouraged in this program.

As a final note, it must be said that “URONTO” is an open collective composed of individuals who wish to freely express their ideas via any medium. However, freedom of expression must always be accompanied by a respectful attitude towards the work space and other members of the collective. Aside from these particularities, the members are welcome to draw ideas and inspiration from their surroundings, since it is only natural for a creation of Nature to find inspiration within it.

For any more information or questions about the project please contact through email or call. All participants are highly recommended to go through the entire document and understand it properly before applying. Multiple queries are invited from all, before final participations.

No submission after the deadline will be taken, but late submissions with remarkable qualities might get short listed for next episodes. In such cases the participants will be informed in advance.

La Fragua moves into its fifth season expanding the artist residency program with new formats that increase diversity and commitment to provide for the needs of national and international artists.

Open call for 2015 residencies
La Fragua artist residency and CoMbO

The artist residency La Fragua moves into its fifth season expanding the artist residency program with new formats that increase diversity and commitment to provide for the needs of national and international artists.

"My experience at La Fragua was something similar to what an archaeologist might experience upon arrival at a site; to find an open landscape full of fragments and treasures "

The open calls for 2015 are the following:

1. La Fragua on a.i.r program:
Our consolidated program has been host to over 140 artists from all disciplines and all continents throughout the past four years. Stays of 1-3 months in Belalcázar offer the uniqueness of working in the 15th century Convent of Santa Clara and living in the village at “Casa Manolo”. La Fragua supports a vibrant program which includes but is not limited to presentations, open studios, exhibitions, community projects, artist-led workshops and guided tours- where artists have the opportunity to develop unconventional projects and enjoy in the creative exchange with other residents simultaneously immersed in the environment.

2. “Silence”
This new residency program is especially directed towards writers and artists in general looking for a period of profound retreat and a moment to disconnect and focus in concentration on writing, reading, composing and investigation. The unique thing about this program is that residents will live inside of the Convent of Santa Clara in a room with a private terrace with countryside views offered by the sisters of Santa Clara.
3. CoMbO a.i.r:

Opened in the city of Cordoba in March 2014, CoMbO- the satellite space of La Fragua artist residency- not only serves as a gallery environment for some of the projects undertaken by artists in residence at the Convent, but as dynamic and flexible organization which adapts to the transformative needs of contemporary artistic practice.

Thus, in addition to serving as an exhibition space, CoMbO begins a new stage as a production office with a residency model. The program is open to proposals from international and national artists of all disciplines, however we are looking to turn the focus in 2015 on those projects that interact with the city of Cordoba, its relation to the past and our actual situation in a global context.

Convocatoria de residencias artísticas 2015
La Fragua artist residency y CoMbO

La residencia de artistas La Fragua, en su quinta temporada, expande su programa de residencias artísticas con nuevos formatos que aumentan la apuesta por ofrecer diversidad y cubrir las necesidades de los creadores nacionales e internacionales.

Las convocatorias para 2015 serán las siguientes:

1. La Fragua on a.i.r program:

Nuestro programa consolidado por el que han pasado ya 140 artistas de todas las disciplinas y todos los continentes en cuatro años. Estancias de 1-3 meses en Belalcázar con la singularidad de trabajar en el convento de Santa Clara y vivir en el centro del pueblo. Un programa vibrante donde los artistas tienen la oportunidad de desarrollar proyectos no convencionales y disfrutar del intercambio creativo con otros residentes al tiempo que se sumergen en el entorno.

2. “Silencio”

Nuevo programa de residencias artísticas ideado para escritores, investigadores o creadores en general que buscan/necesitan un tiempo de retiro absoluto. La gran peculiaridad de este programa es que los residentes vivirán dentro del propio Convento de Santa Clara, en habitación con terraza privada y vistas al campo ofrecida por las hermanas clarisas.

3. CoMbO a.i.r:

Abierto en la ciudad de Córdoba en Marzo de 2014, CoMbO, como espacio satélite de La fragua no sólo sirve como lugar de presentación para algunos de los proyectos realizados por los artistas en residencia sino que como institución flexible y dinámica se adapta a las necesidades de transformación de las prácticas artísticas en el momento actual.

De esta manera, además de servir como espacio expositivo, CoMbO, se abre en esta nueva etapa como oficina de producción y espacio de residencia, abierto a propuestas de artistas internacionales y nacionales que quieran trabajar sobre la singular ubicación de la ciudad en la historia de Europa y en el contexto global contemporáneo.

Shoot baroque! or the culture of excess. Photography program in Murcia, South East Spain.

The Baroque is a form of artistic expression most commonly associated by its character of excess, but also being object of spectacle, virtuosity, commerciality, mythic proportions, and intertextuality.

The word ‘baroque’ does originate, after all, from the Romance languages, meaning “rough pearl” or “elaborate” when seeking the Latin root "roca", meaning stone. Logic would dictate that baroque, and consequently the neo-baroque, are founded on the idea of creating something of a lasting and sculpted effect.

LA POSTIZA residency is based in Murcia, a city with a long old baroque tradition. Music, arquitecture, sculpure, literature and other manifestations are visible in its heritage. From the 16th century, and particularly the 18th century, onwards that Murcia achieved an urban splendour that lead to its expansion beyond the city walls. We would like to start from this point to build a contemporary photography project about the 'culture of excess' traditional influence in Society, even in hugely depressed environments, as a twentyfirst-century manifestation.

We collaborate with Farmers, Artists and scientists are interested in scientific artistic inquiry. Through participatory projects, we create spaces and experiences where the logic of a situation disappears – encounters occur that broaden, rather than narrow perspectives, i.e. reductionist art and science. We use various media to create work that has the potential to destabilize logics of “certainty”. We deconstruct systems such as food policies and rural farming networks to visualize and understand their intrinsic logics. Through this disassembly new narratives emerge that reconfigure the principles that once dominated these systems. Our work often provides a playful entry point and tools for participants to gain insight into deeper fields of inquiry- not only to imagine, but also to participate in and initiate change in the places “Being A farmer”.

Sculpture Space Funded Residency 2015-16

SCULPTURE SPACE, located in Utica, New York invites artists whose focus is sculpture to apply for a two-month residency between September 2015 and September 2016. Depending on funding, eighteen to twenty residents are selectively chosen each year with a stipend of $2,000 awarded to offset costs.

We offer a 5,500 square foot shared studio with specialized equipment in addition to five private studios. The Studio Manager provides ongoing assistance and technical expertise; the Office Manager and Executive Director are available to assist with any other special requirements. Basic understanding and communication skills in English are necessary. Three to five artists are in residence each month; artists are expected to stay for a full two months. Housing is provided a block away in a newly renovated residence with private bedrooms, washer/dryer, TV, internet, shared living space and kitchen. Artists are responsible for materials, specialized tools and food. Bicycles are provided; transport for materials purchase and other needs is also available.

The studio and house are located in West Utica, close to downtown, and situated in Central New York's scenic Mohawk Valley. Because of Sculpture Space’s long history and presence in Utica, the community is supportive and receptive to site-specific work; in particular, we are interested in projects that realize and expand examples of creative placemaking to our neighborhood and the community.

Artists are required to acknowledge Sculpture Space when works made while in residence are subsequently exhibited or published and must provide high-quality images of works for the website, archives and publications. In addition, we require artists donate an artwork to be sold at our annual CHAIRity Art Auction, held every September, benefitting Sculpture Space’s programming.

Since 1976, Sculpture Space has helped to support the careers and studio practice of over 500 national and international artists from around the world. As desired, artists and arts professionals (including curators and writers) are invited for informal studio visits. The collaborative environment of the studio and the communal aspects of the residence help foster dialogue, exchange of ideas, creative experimentation and both personal and professional connections.

LAST CALL FOR SHORT TERM AUTUMN RESIDENCIES AT CeRCCa

CeRCCa the Center for Research and Creativity Casamarles (50km south of Barcelona) is open for short term residencies during November 2014.
The residency periods are either 15 days (from the 1st to the 15th November) or 1 month (from the 1st to the 30th November) Residency periods.

The artist fee for a 15 day residency is 250E and for 1 month residencies is 500E.

For 2015 CeRCCa is starting a New A.I.R format.

Since the beginning of CeRCCa´s Residency Program in 2009 our aim has been to facilitate and develop research and creative projects that reflect upon and interact with the local community. During these 5 years more than 70 artists and researchers have been selected to be part of CeRCCa. Through the residency and the collaboration with the local community they have developed projects in different disciplines ranging from video, photography and performance to street art, creative workshops and interventions in the public space. To celebrate all these projects and as a homage to the artists, researchers and all the people and organizations that have collaborated with CeRCCa the ‘5th CeRCCa Anniversary Publication’ will be launched in summer 2014.

After the evaluation of the first five years of CeRCCa and thanks to many conversations with other professionals and previous residents we are happy to announce the new venture of CeRCCa. This new venture will be developed through the restructuring of CeRCCa’s artists and researchers residencies.

The New Artists and Researchers Residency Project will be structured as follows

• The main feature of the new strategy will be to promote exchange and reflection with no obligation of producing a concrete body of work or having a final exhibition. In a time where artists and researchers are under pressure to produce and justify the validity of their professions with tangible outcomes we strongly believe that to have time for dialogue and experimentation is much needed. We believe that the perfect framework to do so is to spent time and work together through the artist in residency methodology.

• We believe that the new residency format will be a time for you to work in your own development as well as building up your professional career through networking and knowledge sharing. CeRCCa will help on that process facilitating contacts and visits in accordance to your interests. In order to facilitate networking and knowledge sharing CeRCCa offers an apartment in Barcelona so to have time to meet, promote your work and learn from other professionals and organizations. The fee for 1 night accommodation in CeRCCa’s apartment in Barcelona is 20E and the maximum stay is 1 night a week. Alternative overnight accommodation can be also arranged.

• The new residency format will be structured through stays of minimum 15 days that can be extended in periods of 15 days (1, 1.5, 2 … months) always starting and ending on the 1st or 15th of each month (those have to be the dates of arrival and departure). For 2014 the time span of the residency period can go from the 1st July to the 1st November.

• CeRCCa will facilitate accessibility to our program with a reduced artists fee. The artist fee for 15 days residency is 250E and 500E for 1 month. The artist fee includes single room with double bed, shared 40 sq studio with 1 more artist or researcher, running costs as well as advice, resources and networking information and contacts.
The selection of applications will be done every 2 months by the coordinators of CeRCCa.

• For residencies of 2 months or longer and if the artist or researcher is interested, CeRCCa will consider organizing an exhibition or public presentation at the end of the residency period. To ensure the best curatorial strategy and optimize the exhibition or public presentation a committee of experts will consider the candidate’s application and exhibition proposal. The same process goes for talks, workshops and other events. Priority will be given to site-specific projects of any discipline and format.

Below Zero : Field trip and workshop driven research residency in the Canadian Winter.

Below Zero

Exploration of Winter for Adventurous Artists

Call for applications: deadline December 10th 2014

Below Zero is a residency for Canadian and international artists interested in experiencing the Canadian winter up close and personal. It will take place over a week in Quebec, Canada in February 2015. The residency will facilitate daily excursions into the outdoors for experimentation, exploration of and production within a wide range of Canadian winter contexts. Participants will have the chance to experience Canada’s picturesque deep snow and ice, wild life, traditional seasonal activities, long dark nights and possible severe weather through daily expeditions like dog sledding, ice fishing, skiing and skating. Excuersions will be enriched by local naturalists and experts.

Ayatana workshops focus on experience, research and brainstorming by visual and conceptual artists. Writers, poets, musicians and dancers are also invited to apply. Preference will be given to artists working with natural materials, new media, performance, intervention, site specific installation, interactive or nomadic work and interdisciplinary research. Although it is not necessary for a resident to produce work during the program, collaboration with each other and the non-artist community of experts is encouraged. All participants will be invited to contribute to the residency catalogue. We hope the residency will facilitate connection between participants and lead to collaborations or international shows.

We are looking for adventurous, inquisitive artists with enthusiasm for daily brainstorming and creation and a willingness to share the development of early-stage work with a small group. Like-minded artists will be chosen to encourage collaboration and skill share. The workshop aims to instigate the experimentation and sharing of new materials and artistic ideas in a supportive, analytical and critical context.

All of Us or None: Responses and Resistance to Militarism

From Ferguson to Gaza, we can see how militarism directly impacts all of our lives.

Militarism refers to physically violent and coercive ways of settling conflict or maintaining control what we see in the everyday actions of armed security forces such as the military, militia, police, border enforcement, and school security.

But do militarist policy decisions actually keep our communities safe and secure? What if we instead invested in the things that help communities, countries, and the globe thrive?

Help us change the way people think about safety and security—and about the tools that should be used to achieve them.

Create a poster-
We need graphic artists, printmakers, street artists, comic artists, and other print-based visual artists who are interested in creating unique posters for a traveling exhibit.

Submissions should explore:

Militarism’s negative effects on your community, your country, or the globe
Ideas for active resistance to militarism
Alternative approaches, new projects, or manifestos that seek to achieve lasting peace and justice

Submission guidelines-
Submit your poster on or before Dec. 15, 2014.

Each submission must include:

Digital image of poster of sized 8.5” x 11” or 22” x 28” (300-600 ppi; TIFF or best resolution JPG; maximum 50MB)
A 250-word artist’s statement
A bio, maximum of 250 words
Artists may submit more than one work.

Terms and conditions-
Jurors will select an initial set of work to be the core of a nationally traveling exhibit.

AFSC will print and professionally display the chosen work in our traveling exhibit.

AFSC will display the chosen work on our website and make it available for free digital download to the public.

The exhibit website will identify each poster by artist, title of piece, short description, and your website if you so choose.

By participating in this project, artists are donating their work to AFSC to use in the traveling exhibit, in digital replicas of the work available for download for free, in informational brochures, and on the web. Work will be fully credited to the artists, with contact information included.

Selected artists will receive a $50 honorarium and a print copy of the catalog of the traveling exhibit.

Traveling exhibition-
At each location of the tour, events and discussions will be held, and teaching artists will work with youth to create more posters for the project.

About AFSC-
The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Read more about AFSC.

AFSC is the creator of the internationally acclaimed Eyes Wide Openexhibit, which traveled the country for years. AFSC’s mural art exhibit Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan, composed of work donated by U.S. and international artists, traveled to 60 cities in the U.S. AFSC also produces the If I Had a Trillion Dollars youth video festival.

Application Deadline: 25 September 2014
Announcement of selected participants: 30 September 2014
Residency Date: 7-17 December 2014
Exhibition/Open Day: 17 December 2014
Venue: fishing and coconut farming town of Sta. Maria, Tablas Island, Romblon Province, The Philippines

Provided by host:

Food and Accommodation
Outdoor Workshop Space
Exhibition/Performance Space
Since we are a new community of non-profit nature, participants are responsible for their travel expense. Artists have an option to extend their stay to further realize or work on new projects in the community after the programme, under a separate agreement with the eco-commune.

Artists (individual/group) from a wide spectrum of creative fields (including visual art, multimedia, craft, writing, film, dance and performance) are invited to apply for our first international residency program in a fishing and coconut farming town of Sta Maria, Tablas Island.

Artists are encouraged to develop works with the locals and use readily available materials in the area in response to the rural environment and its community. The residency aims to engage the community in art through public performances, exhibitions, workshops and discussions, striving to promote art that is more interactive and more accessible to the people, especially in rural areas.

Tuburan Eco-Commune is a young community founded in December 2013 in an abandoned coconut farm owned by the founder’s family located at Santa Maria, Tablas Island in the Philippines. We are aiming to create an artistic and sustainable environment in a remote rural community. The location is suitable for each individual who enjoys connection with people, space, and nature. The community values cooperation and interaction between individuals, the community and the public, and ideologies and cultures.

_inventory is an independent, collaboration-based collective that organizes shows in alternative and public spaces.

CRACK Trust

It all started in 2007. Artist Shawon Akand and artist Delowar Hossain’s meeting had germinated the crucial idea of this platform in that year. Shawon Akand’s idea of artists gathering was drawn from the Baul (one of the Sufi sects) philosophy and tradition in Bengal. Kushtia, a south western district of Bangladesh, is one of the major centers of this philosophy. Eventually this platform is now constituted as a Non-Profit Arts Trust which is primarily based in Bangladesh, yet also charting new artistic arenas in different communities of the world.

It has gradually consolidated and developed ideas grounded in the spirit of exploration, exchange, and collective experience. It focuses on promoting young artists and thinkers by giving them space and momentum for flourishing their talent on an international basis. On its journey of last 7 years, CRACK has developed a strong network of associated artists in the world, especially in South Asian countries.

How to apply?

Application is FREE!

The applicants are requested to submit the following materials to inventoryresidency.application@gmail.com

1. A complete portfolio including brief Biography/CV

2. A short motivation letter

Forest Studio Residency

Stour Valley Arts offers artists working in any discipline the opportunity to undertake self-directed residencies in our newly converted Forest Studio on the edge of King’s Wood, Challock.

Forest Studio is a free of charge, and free to apply, residency. This residency is fundamentally about process rather than production and can last either 2 or 3 weeks. During this residency you might explore the forest and be inspired, test a new idea or way of working, or just get away from the daily routines of the studio. This resource offers you the opportunity to invest focussed time and thought in your practice without the demands or expectations of making resolved new works.

There is no deadline for applications, but the selection panel meets twice a year with the next meeting due to take place on Thursday 21st August 2014. For more information go to our website http://stourvalleyarts.co.uk/ or email us at info@stourvalleyarts.org.uk.

PREMC - an art residency in Orissa, India

The first thing you have to know about PREMC is that this is NOT the typical art residency, but this will be the time of your life!
In fact, while you will have free time to work on your personal project, PREMC will concentrate on discovering Indian culture – the one practice in Orissa, to be precise. Therefore, your weeks will be divided in two: the first part of the week, will be about learning, through participating in local festivals, going into the houses of people (who will tell you about their rituals, daily life and beliefs), attending talks given by specialists (university teachers, professional artists, priests) and visiting temples and other important places in the surrounding area. In the second half of the week, we will give you time to breath as no activities will be planned, it’s time for you to transform all this inspirational matter into your own creativity and art projects!

The residency will welcome 30 artists from January 12th to February 12th 2015 ; the cost is 250 US $ per week (1000$ in total) and includes accommodation, food, weekend visits and participation to all activities.

CALL FOR ARTISTS

CRACK INTERNATIONAL ART CAMP 2014
Organized by CRACK Trust

Application Deadline: 15 September 2014
Finalist Announcement: 30 September 2014
Camp Date: 25-30 December 2014
Open Day: 30 December 2014
Venue: Smaran Matsya-beej Khamar, Rahimpur (adjacent to Dhaka-Kushtia highway), Kushtia, Bangladesh.

Introduction/ Background:
Artist Shawon Akand and artist Delowar Hossain’s meeting had germinated the crucial idea of this platform in 2007. The initiators conceived a melting pot for artists and creative minds coming from diverse fields of praxis to come together and explore each other’s artistic realms. Eventually this platform is now constituted as a non-profit arts trust (CRACK Trust) which is primarily based in Bangladesh and also charting new artistic arenas globally.
At CRACK Trust we believe that Art is a complex process and it could not be separated from life and ways of living. We think that every form of art has inter-relation and it is necessary to develop vigorous inter linkages between every field of culture to create a favorable environment for the progress of artistic practices. In this light, apart from visual artists, CRACK also engages creative people from various disciplines, including but not limited to theatre activists, photographers, film makers, musicians, psychologists, singers, poets, writers, journalists, actors, anthropologist, folklorists, historians, art critics and so on.

Objective & Purpose:
1. CRACK International Art Camp(CIAC) focuses on promoting young artists & thinkers by giving them space & momentum for flourishing their talent on an international basis.
2. CIAC is building a potential cross-cultural relationship keeping away from the conventional corporate culture.
3. Exchange of thoughts, ideas, concepts & beliefs will accelerate seamlessly through CIAC.
4. CIAC facilitates the participants coming from across the world with the philosophical basis to think independently out of basket.
5. Telescoping scope for practicing Art & Culture across the border. Involvement with multi-cultural participants will definitely click fresh, positive and new ideas for anyone involved in this art camp.
6. Sharing and caring for cross-cultural art will aim at the establishment of an eco-friendly platform. A way out from the monotonous urban life, spending some days in the lap of nature and catching up with the beats of pastoral Bengali folks are exactly what every artist might be thirsting for!
7. Brain-refreshing rather than brainstorming - the purpose of the camp is to provide the participants with a sound environment to relax their minds and share their views and insights about art works with each other.

Who can attend?
• CIAC is open for all art loving, cultural-minded people across the globe. It calls for artists in a broad sense from visual or conventional art media to the multidisciplinary periphery (poets, writers, journalists, singers or musicians, film makers, photographers and so on).
• Even though there is no age limitation to become a CIAC participant, young artists will be given priority.
• The CIAC is targeted to adventurous and enthusiastic persons who can accept challenges to comfortable living. People accustomed to luxurious suite and feasts are firmly discouraged to join the CIAC.

How to apply?
The CAMP is absolutely Registration FREE!
The applicants are requested to submit the following materials to the Crack International Art Camp [CIAC] (crackbangladesh@gmail.com) and Curator (@gmail.com)
1. A complete portfolio including brief Biography/CV

DELICEIRAS18 / temporary art community

We seek two artists for the new, experimental project DELICEIRAS18 located in a residential house in Porto, Portugal transformed into an art space. The first artist-in-residency round starts on the 1st of August but you can also apply for following months. Dates of each residency will be set with each artist depending on their individual project.

THE PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The DELICEIRAS18 project is located in a very old, two-story house in Porto, Portugal which seems to organically adapt to the form of the city itself, consisting of no perpendicular lines, with floors sloping and sounds of human and seagulls daily life entering through wooden old windows creating in the interior a constant quasimusical blend of noises. The house is situated in a very particular place, although right in the middle of a triangle created by three most central metro stations: Trindade, Aliados and Bolhão, its entrance stays hidden in a tiny bystreet, overlooked by tourists and bustling with local life. The everyday reality of the bystreet is even more curious due to a very particular combination of the house neighbors, formed by an old shoemaker's workshop, a motorcycle club and a traditional bar. The kitchen and upper toilet of the house face a brothel.

The aim of the project is to connect with the immediate environment of the house and explore borders between private and public by living, creating and exhibiting in one and the same space. The project is addressed to artists from all disciplines who want to spend a month, take an active part in the transformation within a temporary interdisciplinary art collective and realize a site-specific project in the house.

You will stay in a private room with a desk and pallet bed. The house interior will be newly painted in white color. You can use as a studio and work installment space as well your room as any other place in the house, including bathrooms, kitchen and corridors. The final result will be presented in the same space within last days of the project. During the work process we will collectively decide on the form and exact dates of the exhibition.

During your stay we will assist you with your working and personal needs and introduce you to the art scene of Porto and other parallel art projects. The residency is initially planned to last for one month but there is a possibility to extend your stay even up to one year.

THE HOUSE FACILITIES
4 private bedrooms/ateliers of approx. 20 m² each
fully equipped little kitchen and dining room
2 bathrooms and one small toilet
DIY silkscreen printing and cyanotype studio
storage room / can be used as a darkroom
Wi-Fi connection

We have a little garden in the MUSAS community gardens that you are also welcome to use as a studio.

COSTS
The project has non-profit character and is self-funded. Each participant will pay the monthly rent of the house that is 105 € + 70 € expenses (including electricity, gas, water, internet, toilet paper and eco-friendly cleaning detergents). You will need to cover your own trip to Porto and food.

APPLICATION
We will review applications on a rolling basis so we advice you to apply as soon as possible.

Please send anything you find relevant to show your interest areas and previous works to deliceiras18@gmail.com. Make sure you include a short text explaining your motivation to stay, work and exhibit in this particular space. Optionally you can include a short description of a project you wish to realize here. An interest to help with painting and other preparatory works will be taken as an advantage however is not mandatory.

After receiving sufficient applications we will carry out Skype interviews with shortlisted candidates.

Kastel Stafilic is the best location to rent apartments as there is alot of sense in peace and quiet atmosphere. There is also an airport nearby but once you get used to it you won't even hear those planes flying by. Most tourists in Kastela are Chechs, Polish, German and English people and some of those people also come to Marina in Kastel Gomlilica so they rent boats to go to further islands and have fun. There are towns near Kastela and one of them is Split as mentioned and is about 10 km away, town Solin is 5 km away and town Trogir is 7 km away. They are all connected by Kastela bay.

Ceramic workshop - Elena, Bulgaria

The initial aim of the workshop is to revive the Medieval ceramic technique from the 2nd Bulgarian Kingdom. This particular ceramic
was produced for a high-rank citizen as dining dishes and wall decoration. The technique is forgotten until the archeological research in 70's in Tsarevets - Veliko Turnovo.
Master Valentin Dimitrov decided to repeat the old tradition of ceramic technique and decoration. The studio is situated in Elena, a small old town near the ancient capital in the heart of the Balkan-mountains. Suitable for pottery production, ceramic jewelry and sculpture.

Summer and autumn workshops are open from August on. The studio is suitable for groups of 6-8 people for 10 days period chosen by the group*

De Nieuwe Ruimte

Derde Wal wil in het seizoen van 2014/2015 interactie, experiment en uitwisseling van artistieke opvattingen over de publieke ruimte van het Waalfront in Nijmegen onderzoeken en presenteren. Dit project krijgt de titel De Nieuwe Ruimte.

De plannen van de gemeente Nijmegen voor het Waalfront zijn helaas uitgesteld. Hierop willen we graag anticiperen door het Waalfront levendig en aantrekkelijk te houden, zonder dat we ons willen mengen in details van de invulling ervan. Van belang is de situatie die nu is ontstaan en met deze gedachte zullen er kunstenaars geselecteerd worden
Derde Wal geeft in dit project ruimte en tijd aan beeldend kunstenaars en biedt hen de gelegenheid te experimenteren in de openbare ruimte van het Waalfront. Deze projecten in de buitenruimte zijn tijdelijk en willen aantonen hoe het nog onontgonnen gebied van het Waalfront kan groeien.

Derde Wal nodigt kunstenaars uit een positie in te nemen. We vragen kunstenaars een nieuw, confronterend, verruimend of verrassend perspectief te geven op de ruimte van het Waalfront.

Stuur een voorstel en een klein portfolio vergezeld van een cv naar info@derdewal.nl

Moonee Art Space

Moonee Art Space (MAS), is a contemporary art space for creative thinking, doing and presnting. MAS building is listed as a heritage place.

The initiator of MAS, Fatima Vafa, has been guided solely by the inspiration of forming a centre that is run, established and developed by artists, for artists.
Its formation may be analogous to the evolution of a work of art itself, as it goes through an open-ended journey.
Fatima welcomes challenge and even creative chaos in order to ‘take it from there.’ In this way, MAS provides a space for what artists need to do:
speculate, experiment, practise and show. Moonee Art Space supports artists’individual programs and provides
resources to realise their aims.

In its Artist in Residency program, practising, established and emerging artists will be welcomed to apply for residencies, fostering a dialogue with local artists. MAS will encourage a focus on contemporary practice and exhibit or publish the collaborative results.

​​MAS will also offer a range of programs from exhibitions and residencies for emerging and established artists, to workshops and teaching programs for all ages.

MAS welcomes artists for whom environmental sustainability is a central part of their vision. At the same level all other inspirational expressions are also welcome to apply.

Moonee Art space is located in the very heart of cultural and business area of Moonee Ponds (Moonee Ponds Junction.) There are shopping centers, cafes and restaurant just under the MAS. Public transports to down town Melbourne and many other part of the city are just on the other side of the street. Moonee Ponds is very close to downtown and other very cultural and artistic area of Melbourne.
