ARTIST TO ARTIST INTERNATIONAL 2009, Visiting Arts & The Delfina Foundation, UK (Lá Fora… 66)
Call for proposals from UK-based visual artists
Deadline: Friday, January 9th 2009
Visiting Arts in partnership with The Delfina Foundation are pleased to announce Artist to Artist International 2009. The 2009 scheme will introduce a geographic focus by inviting artists from across the Middle East and North Africa.
The programme provides an opportunity to bring together artists to initiate dialogues across international borders, enabling pairs of artists to enter into new working relationships on an open-ended and informal basis. Professional, practising UK based artists can apply to invite an artist of their choice, from the below prioritised countries, to visit them in the UK for one week for the exchange of ideas and experiences.
The selected overseas artist will spend a week with the UK artist, visit their studio, meet contacts, network and discuss ideas. The emphasis is on the development and research process rather than production, free from any obligation to produce a prescribed outcome.
Invited artists from the following countries only, are eligible to participate in the 2009 programme: Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt, Jordon, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Morocco Oman, Palestine Territories, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
All selected participants will need to be available from the 23rd – 29th March 2009 (fixed).
Please contact Adam Knights for application forms and further details about the scheme.
