Opportunity: Artists’ Development Programme

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

The EIB Institute’s Artists’ Development Programme 2016, targeting one emerging visual artist (less than 35 years old) from the European Union focusing on “The imprint of man- representing the anthropocene”, is now open for applications until 21 February.

The programme provides an opportunity for the selected artist to develop his/her practice at the highest level during a month-long residency in Luxembourg in June 2016 by creating a new (body of) work(s). During this time, he/she will be mentored by internationally acclaimed British artist Darren Almond. Applicants should be fluent in English.

A jury, consisting of members of the EIB Institute Arts Committee, external arts professionals and the mentor, will evaluate the applications and select the artist in residence. It bases its selection on his/her motivations, quality of the work, and the applicant’s potential to use the residency to maximum benefit. The selected candidate will be informed via email by the beginning of April 2016.

The EIB Institute will take over the artist’s travel costs to and from Luxembourg. This includes a stopover to visit the mentor, Darren Almond, in London and experiencing the latter’s creative studio(s). The artist will also receive a stipend (EUR 100 per day). At the end of the residency, the participant will receive a success fee of EUR 1,500 each, provided he/she has produced an artwork.

Candidates should send the following documents to Ms. Delphine Munro (arts@eib.org) :

  • CV (in English)
  • Scanned copy of their passport or identity card evidencing nationality in one of the 28 Member States
  • A paper detailing the project that would be produced during the residency, in line with the proposed theme (maximum 600 words, in English)
  • Portfolio of visual documentation of several works best characterizing the art of the applicant (in PDF, four A4 pages maximum)
  • Names and contacts of two professional referees, familiar with the art of the applicant
  • A brief reference in the body of the email to how the applicant found out about the programme

Application deadline: Feb. 21st @ midnight

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
