Grants for U.S. artists

I recently happened upon a website called The Artists Objective. It has some useful information, particularly of interest for U.S. artists is the ART FUNDERS link. Hope you find these useful.

Also, a reminder that there are  4 days left to apply for the June writer’s residence. Click on the Writer’s Residence page for more information.

Happy New Year 2010!

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.

Deadlines are:

  • 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.

Hello!

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.
