Residence Fellowship for Artists
La Macina di San Cresci, a residence for artists - member of Res Artis, announces that the Municipality of Greve in Chianti (Florence, Italy) grants a one month fellowship in 2009. This programme is open to artists between 18 and 35 years, proposing innovative projects reflecting an opening to the human, social and economic contexts surrounding them. Disciplines include: architecture (architecture design, urban studies and landscape design), photography, painting, sculpture, ceramics and installation.
The fellowship recipient is granted 1000 Euros to cover expenses (art material, meals, local transport, etc.), in addition to living space and studios free of charge. The selected artist is provided with a shared room and workspace in a shared studio for a 30 days period between 15 January and 30 April 2009.
During the stay at La Macina di San Cresci, the selected artist is asked to give at least one informal lecture concerning his/her work, open to the public in general. The artist-in-residence is asked to leave one piece of work made during his/her stay as a donation to the Municipality of Greve in Chianti. The deadline for applications is 15 November 2008.
