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.
Wow! I can’t believe that it’s already 2010. I can still remember when we were waiting for 2000 unsure how computers around the world will react. Here we are 10 years later and not much has changed – except that we’re older, of course 😉
I just wanted to mention that I am still accepting applications for the summer residencies.
- Jan. 16 (application must be mailed by this date) for the summer artist residence, which will take place in July and August. See the Summer 2010 page for more information.
- Feb. 1 for the June writer’s residence. This is an email application. See the Writer’s Residence page for more information.
If there is any information that is not covered on these pages, please feel free to email me your questions. Please be patient though, I’m pretty busy and I get behind on emails. I will try to update here fairly often and try to answer common questions on here, so check back or subscribe.
For those interested, the above mentioned residencies are most likely the only ones that will occur this year. I hope more and more residencies will take place each year.
Hope this new year is productive and brings lots of creativity.
