i. Fogo Island Arts Residency applications

Fogo Island Arts is seeking applications from artists working in a wide range of disciplines for residencies taking place between April 2016 and March 2017.

 

About Fogo Island Arts
Fogo Island Arts is a residency-based contemporary art venue that supports research and production of new work for artists, filmmakers, writers, musicians, curators, designers and thinkers from around the world. Since 2008, FIA has brought some of the most exciting emerging and renowned artists of today to take part in residencies and programs on Fogo Island, Newfoundland, Canada.

 

FIA is part of the Shorefast Foundation, a Canadian registered charity dedicated to improving the socio-economic conditions on Fogo Island. Combining contemporary art, iconic architecture and social innovation in a singular setting, FIA is a world-class institution that is uniquely rooted in community.

 

FIA residencies
Fogo Island Arts residencies provide opportunities for artists from a wide range of disciplines to live and work on Fogo Island for periods ranging from one to three months. Artists-in-residence are provided with accommodation and studio space, as well as a weekly stipend to offset the costs of materials, shipping, and day-to-day living expenses. Most travel expenses are also covered. Artists-in-residence are asked to do one public presentation, performance, workshop, or similar event during their residency. Selected artists are invited to present their work in exhibitions at the Fogo Island Gallery.

 

FIA residencies are intended for professional artists with formal training or equivalent experience and recognition among their peers.
