Fogo Island Arts is seeking applications for its International Artists Residency Program and The Canadian Young Curator Residency. Residencies will take place in Spring and Fall 2018 and 2019.
Opening in 2008, Fogo Island Arts is a residency-based contemporary art venue that supports the research and production of new work by artists, curators, filmmakers, writers, musicians, designers, and thinkers from around the world.
Artists-in-residence are provided with a studio, accommodation in a traditional Newfoundland home, a vehicle for on-island use, and a weekly stipend to offset the costs of materials and day-to-day living expenses. Most travel expenses are covered. Artists-in-residence must give one public presentation, performance, workshop, or similar event during their residency.
The Hnatyshyn Foundation-Fogo Island Arts Young Curator Residency provides an opportunity for an emerging Canadian curator between the ages of 25 and 30 to participate in a six-week residency. The residency will cover the costs of travel to and from Fogo Island, accommodations in a traditional Newfoundland home, and use of a vehicle for on-island transportation. The residency also includes a stipend to cover food costs and incidentals.
