Invisible Worlds Residencies

FoAM

Invisible Worlds Residencies are a collaboration between the Eden Project and FoAM, funded by the Wellcome Trust.
 
Invisible Worlds Residencies are primarily based at the Eden Project, and open to all – artists, scientists, creators and makers – to explore phenomena beyond our senses: too vast, too small, too fast, too slow or too far away in space or time. You can use the time to develop risky new ideas or to continue your existing work in a unique environment, within a diverse community of public engagement specialists, horticulturalists and educators.
 
There are no pre-defined outputs, but the project must embed public outreach – this could be in the form of a small exhibit, workshop or event, or it could mean working on your project in the open and talking with the visitors as they come by. The Eden Project audience is very broad, and not a typical museum-visitor demographic – so you’ll need to think about what will work best in this context. Exchange of ideas and skills with the Eden Project team is desirable. There will be a facilitator who can help you develop your public engagement skills, and in return we’d like you to show them something – this might be how to do a lab protocol, programming or electronics, new materials for use in exhibits, or an artistic process. The work produced during the residency must be made freely available using open-source methodologies (Public Domain or CC-BY licences).
 
Funding is available between £500 and £3,000 per resident. This can be used as you wish, depending on your needs. The funding may be used to cover any associated costs, for example travel, accommodation, childcare, materials, and fees. The residencies can last for a total of 1 week to 2 months, and can be split into separate blocks of time if required. The residencies can be individual or shared by more than one person, for example a collective or family. The residencies can take place in June/July or Sept/Oct 2018.
 
The Eden Project is in an isolated location and accommodation is not included with the residency. However, basic accommodation may be available on site with a small cost implication (details below). We can help you to find appropriate accommodation (on site or anywhere you like) and car access if required, but this must be covered within your budget.

Police Point Artist in Residence Program

Mornington Peninsula Shire

Emerging and established artists, writers, musicians and creatives are invited to apply for a Police Point Artist in Residency.
 
Both supported and fee paying residencies are available, ranging from a minimum of two weeks to a maximum of six weeks.
 
In a supported residency the cottage is occupied without charge to the artist but there is a requirement to participate in agreed public programs that contribute to the cultural life of the Mornington Peninsula. Fee paying residencies are $300 per week (+GST).
 
The AiR is in the historic Gatekeeper’s Cottage (c.1888) at Police Point Shire Park, Portsea. The cottage was initially built for the quarantine boatmen. In 1901 it became accommodation for the Gatekeeper who oversaw movement in and out of the Quarantine Station that was opened in 1852 to control and prevent the spread of diseases from immigrants arriving by sea.
 
Minor changes have been made to the building over time and an extension now forms the studio space. The entire cottage was renovated to heritage standards in recent years.
 
The Gatekeepers Cottage is a two-bedroom residence with reading room, studio, kitchen and dining room, bathroom, vegetable boxes and back verandah with spectacular views of Port Phillip Bay.
 
Artists can be inspired by this nationally significant cultural heritage site located in the traditional lands of the Burin’yong-bulluk, one of at least six clans of the Bunurong who were part of the Kulin Nation of Central Victoria.
 
The Police Point AiR program is coordinated by the Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Arts & Culture team who work closely with key stakeholders and the community.

Jardin Orange Residency

Jardin Orange Residency

Jardin Orange (“Orange Garden”) is a new artist residency in the north of Shenzhen, China. It has been host to and seeks to promote talented artists both from within China as well as to bring international artists to the burgeoning Chinese market. The overall mission of the project is to become an active participant in the region’s artistic growth as well as to become a “magnet” residency that attracts and supports young artists in their careers. Artists come here to be culturally flexible, push beyond their comfort zone, to work hard and to experiment with new forms of personal expression that they haven’t tried before.
 
Jardin Orange Artist Residency (JO) offers Artists-In-Residence (AIR) a unique environment to spend extended residencies within the burgeoning young metropolis of Shenzhen, in southern China.
 
This residency, in particular, is for artists to come explore their personal stylistic boundaries, to attempt things that they haven’t done before, to experiment with new techniques and to consider the advice of others. We strive to encourage, in every step of the creative process, the forward motion and evolution of each artist that pushes them ahead in their professional journey. Jardin Orange Artist Residency is designed as an opportunity for artists to intensively pursue creative work away from their home setting and to welcomely embrace the modern Chinese urban setting.
 
We are looking to host recognised international and regional artists so they can develop their creative visions to new limits and to work on a series of canvas pieces that can then be then displayed and sold in our gallery.
 
Eligible Applicants
JO offers 4 to 12-week duration residencies throughout the year. The goal is to host around 2-3 artists per month. This means, potentially, dozens of artists are provided the opportunity to live and work at Jardin Orange Artist Residency each year.
 
This residency is currently open (til end of 2017) to “local” (those residing in the SZ/HK/GZ area) the artistic genre of visual art of painting. Unfortunately, we are not equipped for the performing arts, music creation, installations, large sculptures and “old-school” photography processing.
 
Artists are expected to commit to this mission: Jardin Orange offers each artist the autonomy and space to engage in his or her personal stylistic exploration; the artist is thought to be flexible, willing to push beyond one’s comfort zone and experiments with new forms of artistic expression and techniques.
 
2018 Applications are submitted by e-mail to jardinorange@gmail.com. A complete application includes:

  • an updated CV and biography (including all exhibition events / websites / shows)

  • a high-resolution visual portfolio your art work of the past 3 years (.pdf)
  • online or digital price reference list for recently sold canvases or works (and average sale price of 1x1m canvas)
  • artist letter of intent: what projects you would like to work on during your stay, how many and why

 
Facilities
Each resident is provided access to an individual studio space (37 sq. meters) and shared kitchen space. Sometimes, studios may be shared depending on volume of artists. Studios are located inside the residency’s three-story building and are fully equipped. Have 300-sq. meter public gallery and several offices.
 
Program Fees

  • Paid by host: Private living accommodations, reasonable amounts of studio and art materials (if not already available), gallery set-up for exhibition

  • Paid by artist: Travel to/from residency, personal travel / excursions beyond residency-based activities, spouses or assistants, insurance, visa costs, daily living expenses

We also offer a select number of group residencies for collaborating artists and virtual residencies for those who can’t spend prolonged time away from home. We welcome artists of all ages, from all cultures and communities, and in all stages of their career. Each residency includes a private bedroom and studio as well as ample time to work in a gorgeous atmosphere. We do not emphasize events or production goals. We believe we can offer artists nothing more precious than the chance to work, and we provide everything an artist needs to organize her time for maximum productivity.
 
Setting
Our seven-acre Upstate New York campus, with its lovely meadows and forest, is adjacent to the former home and gardens of poet Edna St. Vincent Millay and the exquisite Harvey Mountain State Forest. Our residents and guests have access to trails for hiking and bicycles, as well as meadows for picnics (with wild blueberry, wild thyme and a delicious mix of plants and flowers) and creeks and streams for cooling off. In the Winter, residents may choose to go cross-country skiing.
We are near the towns of Chatham, NY and Great Barrington, MA (a lovely Berkshire town with all the trimmings).

Our chef cooks healthy delicious dinners and also provides food for residents to cook their own day-time meals. We are happy to respond to food allergies as well as vegetarian, vegan and other diets. We have a barbecue for outdoor grilling and get-togethers.

The Steepletop Barn has four bedrooms and four studios with beautiful meadow and mountain views. The Main Building was featured in the July ’98 issue of Architectural Record for its sleek look and commitment to universal access. This building contains two residency suites and studios as well as common areas open to all residents, including the kitchen, dining and living areas, and a laundry room. All are fully accessible. The Main House also has a darkroom, a Yamaha U1 upright piano, a large collection of art books, lounges, a public telephone, and WiFi.

Skopelos Foundation for the Arts Residency

The Skopelos Foundation for the Arts

The Skopelos Foundation for the Arts offers residencies for two weeks to two months for ceramists, mixed media artists, painters, printmakers and sculptors from March through December.
 
The Skopelos Foundation for the Arts is looking for the adventurous artist that would want to immerse themselves and create from the Greek culture. We offer residencies in ceramics, painting, printmaking and sculpting.
 
Greece is a land filled with hundreds of enchanted islands, and Skopelos is one of its most inviting. Located in the Aegean northeast of Athens, Skopelos offers visitors a memorable experience. The view of Skopelos Town from the harbor is breathtaking. A broad promenade for leisurely strolling along the waterfront, whitewashed cottages festooned with brilliant crimson bougainvillea, nestled against lofty, green hills–this is the Greece tourists hope to visit on cruises and seldom find.
 
The Skopelos Foundation for the Arts adds an appealing accent to this beguiling island. Gloria Carr, a woman with a dream, established the Skopelos Foundation in the mid-90s. A graduate of George Mason University’s Fine Arts Program and the Pratt Institute in New York, Gloria traveled to Greece for a holiday. She landed on Skopelos, was enthralled by its beauty, and extended her holiday indefinitely.
 
And so the Skopelos Foundation for the Arts was launched. In a land where things move on Greek time, the American concept of deadlines hasn’t made much headway. Nevertheless, Gloria built a state-of-the-art studio and was ready to begin offering workshops in little more than a year. Her mission was “to give students, artists, and interested travelers an opportunity to experience Greek culture and art, both traditional and contemporary.”
 
The Greek culture is one of generosity, kindness, and togetherness. The Greeks are happiest when everyone is included. If you sit down to a meal with a group of people, you don’t leave until everybody is ready to leave. In this social climate, people go out together for coffee, dinner, or drinks. When you walk downtown to drink coffee, you might find a laborer, the mayor, a lawyer, and a carpenter all sitting at the same table, enjoying each other’s company. Their views matter, not their educational level, background, or income. We want to offer this same atmosphere in our residencies at the Foundation.
 
In Skopelos, people can leave their stress behind and be themselves. The atmosphere is relaxed, and the common phrase is ‘siga, siga’ –‘slowly, slowly.” Visitors who want to shape this mellow, people-centered culture to their own lifestyles may feel uncomfortable at Skopelos. Adaptability is the key. If you look at change as an opportunity and not as a problem, the Skopelos Foundation for the Arts is the perfect place for you!
