La Macina di San Cresci, Greve in Chianti ( Florence ) Italy

Deadline: April 10 , 2012



La Macina di San Cresci , residence for artists member of RES ARTIS , announces that  the Provincia di Firenze will award two residency fellowships to artists. The program invites artists from around the world to apply to work for one month in a studio at la Macina di San Cresci. The Fellowship recipients will receive  a € 500 stipend, private room, studio space.
 
The theme for the program is "Platform 948: where engage ideas and concepts about the environment." Develop a composition in which the machinery of nature and machine of art become one, through a series of interventions and through the perception of the artists. A research that creates "views" and operates in-between reality and the different layers of the territory: the past, the contemporary economic culture, the temporal and spatial interrelationships. A reflection on the socio-cultural, architectural, language, habits  characteristics of this place, the environment, the village , interlaced with the man and with habits whom he lives of this environment.

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 However, I do not publish information on exhibition or publishing opportunities, nor do I advertise artist retreats and workshops that charge money.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!
