Fogo Island Arts is seeking applications for its international residency program from artists working in a wide range of disciplines. Fogo Island Arts is a residency-based contemporary art venue in Canada that supports research and production of new work for artists, filmmakers, writers, musicians, curators, designers and thinkers from around the world.
Fogo Island Arts residencies provide opportunities for artists to live and work on Fogo Island, Newfoundland for six to eight weeks. Artists-in-residence are provided with accommodation and studio space, 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 also covered. Artists-in-residence must give one public presentation, performance, workshop or similar event during their residency. Residencies will take place in 2021 and 2022.
FIA residencies are intended for professional contemporary artists with specialized training, recognition among their peers and a history of public presentation of their work in a professional context.
Applications are welcome from Canadian and international contemporary artists working in a wide range of disciplines including visual art, film, arts writing, music/sound, curating, design and theory.
Applications should consider the unique circumstances under which Fogo Island Arts carries out its programs. Applicants should also keep in mind that this residency takes place on a remote island with limited amenities.
Deadline: Mar. 23, 2020
