You are a professional artist. That means that you are in control of your future. It also means you – and only you – dictate the bounds of your achievement. We live in extraordinary times and we face an extreme micro-moment of widespread concern and uncertainty. This is no reason to stop – no reason to slow your momentum. During this period of unknown outcomes, you must continue to pursue opportunities as you have always done. Being your own agent of change and growth means there is noone else who can influence these things. Read on for upcoming opportunity deadlines.

International Elias Canetti Society announces the annual residence scholarship for 2020. Selected artists can use this opportunity to hone their craft on site in Ruse and Bulgaria while earning a stipend receiving a travel budget. For more information, visit the website. Deadline is March 30.
Digital America has the following to say about their rolling submissions:
“Digital America is interested in pushing the boundaries of online publishing. We publish an array of digital art, internet art, design, and critical essays that question, analyze, and/or hack the tools of digital culture. You can submit work independently to firstname.lastname@example.org (see guidelines below). Selected work is either published in our fall issue (November) or our spring issue (April). If you’re curious if your work would be a good fit for the journal, we suggest taking some time to read through the last few issues. We promise it’s time well spent.”
Life is unpredictable. It takes shape in some unexpected ways at times. Praxis Center is here to see you through all of the twists and turns. And we remind you all at this critical moment that no matter what is going on outside the boundaries of your studio, you must at all times be looking to the future. Do not be dissuaded by each passing moment – keep your focus on the endgame and your energy directed at whatever it takes to get there.
