Welcome back from vacations! Now that your shore leave is over and we are all in the same boat again, let’s have a look at opportunities for visual artists and curators, starting as of today. Switch on the background music from Sould II Soul and let’s get moooovin’.
Now, I am sure you will have some preferences of how to look for Grants, Prizes and Calls, but maybe some of these starting points are new for you. And if you know some good ones to add, please leave a comment or write to me.
Let’s get started with some general ones: If you are based in Latin America or want to go there with a stipend or grant, have a look at www.universia.net. It operates on the whole continent and is a great ressource. For artists’ mobility in Europe, check On-AiR Mobility. Artists-in-Residence programs around the world can be found best on Res Artis and Trans Artists, other useful sites are AIR World Guide, Artists Communities, and Japan’s AIR programs.
Some of the current postings of the Curator Ship are the Call for Warsaw Photo Days’ Open Programme under the theme ‘CLASH’ (Deadline Sept 5); the Scholarships for the European Master of Fine Art Photography (and two more courses, on Photobooks and on Professional Photography) in Madrid, with Deadline Sept. 17; and the 8th International Arte Laguna Prize, in Venice, dedicated to contemporary visual art (Deadline: Oct. 30).
There is really no excuse for not getting back on your feet… but please always hold on to the guard rail, so you don’t fall over board.
Have a great start into the fall! Your Captain.
