Time moves on whether we are prepared or not, and as a career artist, time is one of your main assets in finding success. Use it wisely and you will secure ample opportunities to expand your own practice and make sure your art is seen by the world – squander it and your career is at risk of faltering even before it takes off. Build in time to seek out opportunities into your regular artistic practice, in this way you will not only continue to create but continue to evolve within the art world. Here are few opportunities – two of them flash opportunities with fast approaching deadlines – to get you going.
Flash Opportunity: Hotel Maria Kapel invites emerging and returning artists to apply for residency. This program offers the opportunity for artists to explore ways of working throughout the residency period and do not offer a particular theme to be followed. There are two residency period options, six weeks and five months. For more information and to apply, visit the website. Application deadline is May 31.
The IDEANOVA Foundation Team invites creatives to design a small or medium-sized mobile architectural design representing a sundial. There are cash awards for several categories and the winning design will be placed at the foot of Wawel Castle in Krakow, Poland. For full details and to enter, visit the website. Deadline for submissions is June 1.
Sound Art Lab in Denmark invites artists who wish to work on a dedicated project to apply for residency.
