The time is now – it is always now. There is no reason to put off what you can accomplish today, and that very much means seeking out opportunities to further your practice, your career and to have your work out in the world. Each week we bring you a few opportunities to explore, to get you thinking about what sort of enrichment might benefit you the most in this moment – right now.
Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art (MAWA) is accepting applications for residency at their Winnipeg location. This residency is open to women, non-binary, trans and 2-Spirit women-identifying visual artists. Residency period lasts from 2-4 weeks and includes free accommodation while offering residents the chance to research, reflect, network and/or produce. For more information, visit the website. Deadine for applications is August 5.
Applications are now open for AIR Sapporo. The theme of residency is The roads stretch on the snow. In their own words:
“Sapporo is a snowy city. When it snows, boundary lines that had been previously visible, disappear. After the snow, the sidewalk I walk on is covered in white, and mysterious lines appear that may be a shortcut made by someone or a detour taken while searching for something. The paths on the snow seem randomly drawn but they actually hold an anonymous logic like that of a rambling curiosity – as if artists left the signs of their research in a certain place.”
To learn more about this residency – and your opportunity to leave signs of your research in a certain place – visit the website. Deadline for applications is August 8.
“SAND seeks submissions that push the boundaries of form, message and voice in fresh and unpredictable ways.” If this describes your work, check out this opportunity to have your work published. To learn more, visit the website. Submission deadline is August 10.
Praxis Center is here for you now and we will be here for you later. Our purpose is to support artists in their professional journies, to encourage them to seek out experiences that push their creative and professional boundaries and to show them how to navigate the art world.
Brainard Carey is an author, artist and educator. He is the director of Praxis for Aesthetics. He has written six books for artists, most recently Making it in the Art World.
