Call for proposals from UK-based artists
Visiting Arts in partnership with The Delfina Foundation is pleased to announce Artist to Artist International 2010.
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, to visit UK for one week for the exchange of ideas and experiences.
The 2010 scheme will introduce a geographic focus by inviting artists from 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.
The selected overseas artist will spend 2 weeks in the UK. The emphasis is on the development and research process rather than production, free from any obligation to produce a prescribed outcome.
All selected participants will need to be available from the 8 March until the 21 March 2010 (fixed).
Please contact Adam Knights at Apply@visitingarts.org.uk for application forms and further details about the scheme.
Application deadline: 5 December 2009
