So, I believe I have received the last of the applications for the summer artist residence, which will take place in July and August. I have emailed everyone whose application I have received, so that means that if you sent in an application, but haven’t received a confirmation of receipt from me, there are only two possible reasons:
- a. I haven’t received your application or
- b. my email didn’t get to you.
Either way, you should get in touch with me.
I must admit the decision will not be an easy one. There are many great artists who make really interesting work with very compelling reasons for wanting to come to Bialystok. Alas, a decision must be made, and 6 artists will be invited to come to Bialystok for the summer. Soon the committee will confer and I will inform ALL applicants of whatever decision is made by February 15, and then with the permission of the chosen artists, I will post who will be coming in July.
Welcome to the Art Factory Białystok International Artist Residence program blog. This will serve as the space for information about our residency programs until we get a website up. After that, it may still function as a blog with periodic updates on what we’re doing.
So far we have had one residence take place – in summer 2008. This is a very young program! The next residence is coming up in summer 2010. A writer’s residence program is in the works. This blog will serve as a documentation of development of the residency program. The aim is a year-round program. There are many hurdles to overcome, and it may take some time, but I believe it can be done. Art Factory Białystok has been a dream of mine, and it is slowly but surely materializing.
And who am I? My name is Urszula Humienik-Dworakowska, and I am the residence founder and project coordinator. I do basically anything and everything to get this thing together and get the right people to help out, etc. My husband, Pawel, helps out with many of the aspects – I don’t think I could do it all completely on my own. To find out more about me, find me on facebook.
