The Fogo Island Arts Corporation is a new contemporary art venue on the east coast of Canada. The Arts Corporation runs two distinct yet complementary programs, the Residency program and the Production program. Both programs encourage dialogue between visiting artists and local people to share experiences and perceptions.
The Fogo Island Arts Corporation’s mission to bring together local communities and the international art scene is reflected in the accommodations and work space provided to Residency Program participants. Striking new studios are being built at locations across the island. They are designed by acclaimed architect Todd Saunders. The first of these studios—The Long Studio—opened on June 2 2010.
Living spaces are provided in refurbished traditional homes located in nearby communities on the island.
How to Apply: Visual artists, curators and filmmakers can apply for residencies on Fogo Island in 2011. Residencies are 3 – 6 months. Visiting artists/curators/filmmakers are provided with a studio space and a house to live in.
Application deadline: July 31 2010.
Applications are reviewed by an international Selection Committee. For complete guidelines and applications forms please visit this page.
