In the Image: a Kickstarter Project Worth Supporting!


I don’t normally post about a kickstarter project unless it is rather extraordinary and I think this one is. Please take a look at the short video below and consider donating to this amazing project. What the filmmakers have to say about their project (which can be found here:


IN THE IMAGE is a documentary about Palestinian women who film human rights abuses throughout the occupied West Bank. Each woman in our film belongs to the Camera Project, a unique collaboration of Jews and Arabs who use video to fight for justice, equality, and against intimidation by Israeli settlers and soldiers. Most importantly, the film explores the lives of these young Palestinian women as they enter the 21st century: their struggles between tradition and modernity, between invisibility and international media attention. The film also reveals the heartwarming collaboration between Arabs and Jews - a joint effort to achieve a just peace.

Welcome to Mira's List

This blog provides information on upcoming grants, fellowships and residencies for artists, writers, composers, and media artists. It is for serious professionals only, from emerging to mid-career to established. I also publish information for graduate students from time to time. However, I do not publish information on exhibition or publishing opportunities, nor do I advertise artist retreats and workshops that charge money. At least that is my current policy. For more info on where to exhibit or publish, please see my links section which I try to periodically update. I sift through hundreds of search engines and websites to find opportunities for YOU dear artist. In return, I ask you to pass the information along to those who need it. Also, since this is a free blog, I don't always have the time to weed carefully through everything. If you find a grant or website or residency that is not up-to-date, is dodgy in some way, or is no longer in existence, please let me know! Also, if you stay somewhere at one of the residencies I suggest and have a good experience, I want that feedback too. Please check my FAQs at the top right side bar if you have questions before starting your search. Best wishes and happy hunting!
