The Fort George Creative Society exists to support art, to promote community and interdisciplinary collaboration between artists and to provide a stage not only for international art in Croatia, but for Balkan creativity in the context of Europe by hosting residency programmes, exhibitions, concerts and other events.
Fort George is a 201 year-old British naval fort set atop a headland on the island of Vis in Croatia. Currently undergoing an extensive restoration, the building houses a restaurant, outdoor event space, museum and arts venue, as well as being the home of FGCS.
The FGCS summer residency programme aims to promote collaboration and interdisciplinary exchange of ideas between artists but also to encourage creative responses to the local community, culture and environment.
At the end of their residency, artists will be expected to present some recent work, whether as part of an exhibition, screening, lecture or other medium. FGCS requests that artists contribute some work to be exhibited in the Fort George gallery, and mention FGCS in any work created during the residency, be it in the form of a credit, an acknowledgement or a logo placement.
FGCS requests the courtesy from the Artist in Residence of a mention in his/her works of art conceived during the residency, be it in terms of a credit, an acknowledgement or a logo placement FGCS will also document the residence program and the stay of the residents, artists, curators for social media, website and press purposes.
Shared accommodation in apartments in the town of Vis is provided as part of the residency.
Studio space in the fort itself is provided - there is additional space in the nearby town of Komiža should artists have any special requirements.
Assistance with sourcing materials / dealing with local suppliers etc will be provided. Unfortunately though, the FGCS cannot write a blank cheque for material costs!
