Un de ses mandats est de promouvoir la diffusion d’expositions itinérantes sur l’ensemble de son territoire, via la Virée de la culture.

À partir de maintenant, les propositions pourront être envoyées tout au long de l’année. Il s’agit dans ce cas d’ouvrir un échange avec les différents professionnels de l’art dont les recherches et l’expérimentation pourront activer différents espaces et produire différentes formes autant dans l’espace de la galerie que hors-les-murs. Il pourra s’agit d’une intervention, d’un partenariat, d’un projet de commissariat, d’ateliers de production, d’un cours de maître, d’une publication, d’un séminaire ou colloque, de performances, conférences, ou projections ponctuelles ou en série, d’une fouille dans les archives, d’une initiative de financement ou même d’un ensemble de ces formes dans un projet d’envergure.

Skol lance également un appel à projets dans le cadre du programme d’été SKOOL, qui s’adresse aux artistes et travailleurs culturels issus de la relève. Les propositions de stages/résidence d’été d’une durée de 10 semaines nous parviendront d’équipes administratives temporaires constituées pour travailler dans le contexte d’un centre d’artistes autogéré. En transformant le centre en lieu d’apprentissage, le programme SKOOL met les ressources du Centre à la disposition d’une équipe qui pourra expérimenter différentes formes de recherche artistique dans un cadre professionnel, et ce, avec l’appui d’un mentor. Les propositions pour le programme SKOOL doivent être envoyées au plus tard le 15 mars 2012, le cachet de la poste faisant foi.

•    Une description détaillée de vos images ou vidéos;
•    Une enveloppe pré-affranchie pour le retour de votre dossier.
Information générale :
•    L’appel régulier est ouvert aux professionnels en art de tout âge et expérience ; l’appel SKOOL s’adresse exclusivement aux étudiants et récents diplômés universitaires (qui ont moins de 3 ans de pratique professionnelle) ;
•    Les dossiers seront évalués par un comité de pairs ;
•    Skol paie les droits de diffusion et honoraires selon les taux recommandés par la CARFAC ;
•    Un plan de la galerie est disponible sur le site Internet en format PDF.

July 3 to July 29, 2012

Winnipeg, Manitoba 

Deadline for applications: April 1, 2012

The Summer Institute is an international post-graduate artist residency for professional artists working in all disciplines. Up to ten artists, architects, designers, curators and other creative professionals will share a collegial, open-studio environment. This critical discursive opportunity will take place in Plug In ICA’s new purpose-built facilities, with an adjoining workshop, art research library, gallery, bookshop and café. Plug In ICA is located at the perimeter of the University of Winnipeg campus, adjacent to the Winnipeg Art Gallery, and in the heart of an urban environment.

Participants are encouraged to pursue their own practices and projects within the context of a shared/collegial/collaborative environment. Faculty and staff provide support and feedback to participants in the program, and work to foster productive and rewarding professional development opportunities. Participants may instigate and participate in collaborative projects, or work independently.

The Institute will host other visiting curators throughout the residency to conduct studio visits with artists.
Sylvie Gilbert is currently the director of Artexte in Montreal, a centre dedicated to the study, the documentation and the interpretation of documents produced in the field of contemporary visual arts. The various positions she has held in arts organizations, museums and public galleries, have included senior curator at the Walter Phillips Gallery and the Banff International Curatorial Institute at the Banff Centre (2004-2008), and director/curator of the Liane and Danny Taran Gallery at the Saidye Bronfman Centre for the Arts in Montreal (2001-2004). Gilbert acted as the Canadian Commissioner for Catherine Richards for the Sydney Biennale (2004). She has curated numerous exhibitions, the most recent include: alt.publication.artists.contemporary.mtl.ottawa.gimli, Pickpocket Almanack Project, Artissima, Italy (2010); Derek Sullivan and Gareth Long: The Illustrated Dictionary of Received Ideas (2010); Bureau de Change (2008); Micah Lexier’s Touch Paper Once: Selected Documents from the Walter Phillips Gallery Archive 1976 – 2007 (2008); Garry Neill Kennedy: Simple Functionalism (2008); Dagmara Genda: Screamers and Bangers: The Wallpaper Project (2008), and Comic Craze (2006) among others.

Andrew Kearney, a mixed media installation artist, was born in Limerick, Ireland in 1961. He studied fine art at Limerick College of Art and Design, and then went on to Chelsea College of Art and Design, where he obtained an MA in sculpture. He won the Barclays Young Artist award at the Serpentine Gallery, London, in 1992. The same year, he was awarded a fellowship at the PS1 studios of contemporary art in New York. Kearney moved back to London in 1993, where he developed an installation for the Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin. The following year he developed other installations for the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, the Camden Arts Centre, London and the Ottawa Art Gallery, Ontario. Site-specific work led to collaborative architecture and public art projects, including a commission for Heathrow Terminal One, with architect, Nicholas Grimshaw, and the Public Art Development Trust. In 2001 Kearney worked with Glen Howell architects on their “Millennium Project” for Westminster Council and on the “Courtyard Interface” for South Thames College, London and the Public Arts Commission Agency. In 2001/2002 he completed two large installation projects in Ireland, “With Intent”, Limerick and “Illumination” at the Boiler House in Ballymun, Dublin. In 2004 he was commissioned to develop an artwork entitled, “Art Wall”, in the new chambers of Limerick County Council. In 2004 Kearney completed his second residency on the ”Informal Architecture” program at the Banff Centre for the Arts. Last year he completed a three-year research program funded by the AHRC at Middlesex College of Art, London. The project looked at the ways in which we inhabit a purpose built environment of an art campus and how that space changes its role as the needs of its users change with new technologies. Two books were published: “Phase 2”, 2007 and the “Spaces Buildings Make”, 2008, culminating in an installation on the South Bank – part of the London Architecture Biennale.  In recent years he has worked on projects such as interactive lighting for the Wexford Opera House in Ireland, entitled, “Liquid Mountain” 2009, Hull, England, and “Art in Empty Spaces” 2010, Tate Britain, 2011.

SUPERNORMAL 2012 call for artist proposals
a unique artist-led event – 10-12th August 2012
Deadline for Proposals: 31st March 2012
www.supernormalfestival.co.uk

Now in it’s third year, (having evolved from Braziers International Artists’Workshop), SUPERNORMAL offers a platform for visual arts and artists of all disciplines to draw inspiration from the event’s unique ethos and setting. An opportunity for dialogue, exchange and exploration of art-focused practice and action in an experimental environment where risks can be taken and leaps of imagination can occur. We encourage participation in the festival as both artist and spectator to give the arts a wider audience and artists a greater challenge outside the conventional gallery space – putting the arts at the heart of the festival.

Proposals & Selection Process
Proposals will go through a selection process and will be judged on the quality of the idea, along with an understanding of the context and audience of Supernormal. As an event that promotes an amalgam of experimental art and music, we will be looking for work that may offer a different viewing or participatory experience – that engages and inspires thought, whether challenging or easily accessible. The work should show understanding of the audience for an event that promotes experimental art and music and work that breaks new ground.
Supernormal welcomes proposals from artists, performers and groups as detailed above. Please include an outline of your idea, work or project in as much detail as possible along with any supporting images and links. (up to 750 words)

Funding & Resources
Supernormal is a not-for-profit event with an invisible budget and limited resources, although we are currently working on funding proposals to assist in the production of work. We would encourage artists to source outside funding where possible. We can provide artists with guest passes to the event, food and drinks, promotion of projects and profiles.

Things to consider  
-How you plan to execute the work  
-How much time will you need on site  
-What materials and resources you will need  
-Consideration of the weather  
-Location of work on site (would you need a pre-visit)  
-Is it self-supporting  -Does it involve participation  
-How you will facilitate the work during the event

Please send proposals to:

We look forward to hearing your ideas!

Festival of Regions 2013 / Digging Up, Austria
Call for Project Submissions 
7–16 June 2013 
Deadline: 16 May, 2012

The Festival of Regions has been exploring and conquering a region or a town in Upper Austria every two years since 1993. Far from the metropolises and cultural centres, a program with contemporary art and culture is designed and communicated to all the residents of a chosen region. Apart from regional, national and international participation by creative artistic and cultural agents, collaboration with local associations, institutions and individuals is sought to anchor the festival in the area and thus leave behind traces that are as deep and distinct as can be. Apart from reinforcing and furthering regional initiatives in the cultural sector, raising awareness of cultural developments is one of the festival’s aims in combination with the aspects of communication, open dialogue and interconnecting everyday culture and art

http://www.fdr.at

The festival venue of Eferding is known principally as a commercial vegetable growing area, especially as a supplier of mini-gherkins that are harvested by the legendary ‘gherkin flyers.’ It is less well-known that Eferding, founded in 1222, is the third oldest town in Austria and can look back on an eventful history that stretches from the Nibelung saga via the peasant uprisings up to the dominant royal house of the Starhembergers. This time we will be engaging with a conservative, good middle-class town. As always at the Festival of Regions, the public domain will serve as both a space for artistic action and a hospitable meeting place. There is a variety of interior spaces in the town available for performances and installations. From the centre the festival program can expand into the nearby environs.
Digging Up is the motto for the Eferding Festival of Regions. On the one hand, this suits the agricultural character of the place, and on the other, digging up can also bring to the light of day things that have been hidden and covered up. In any case, things first have to be dug up if something new is to grow, if new fruits are to be harvested. The motto is therefore a metaphor for planting today’s art and culture, whereby rare plants and blossoms are hoped for in all possible mutations and variations.

Call for submissions
Project proposals are invited from all artistic areas and genres. In an atmosphere of openness, projects with local specificity will be given preference nonetheless, along with endeavours that engage with the town’s social history and draw in as many strata of the population and individual positive forces as possible, for which role we will gladly function as mediator. Connotations with the festival motto of Digging Up will also be considered. However, please do not submit already-made projects without any connection to the festival’s location or theme.

Details
Submissions in German or English with a maximum of seven pages. Deadline for submissions is 16 May 2012 (postmark) by normal mail or by e-mail as a Word or PDF file to the Festival of Regions, Marktplatz 12, 4100 Ottensheim / Austria; einreichung [arobas] fdr [point] at, Telephone +43 (0)7234 – 85285, http://www.fdr.at

Atelier Topaz – résidence

Opasatika, Ontario, Canada
Le lieu
Situés au cœur de la forêt boréale, les Ateliers Topaz sont à la fois un lieu de retraite et un centre de création pour artistes, toutes disciplines confondues. L’endroit parfait pour la réflexion, l’évasion. Le groupement d’édifices fait 900 mètres carrés et repose sur 14 hectares face à la route Transcanadienne. Il donne sur un étang de deux hectares. Topaz c’est la « Route 66 » dans le nord de l’Ontario. L’endroit, modeste et nostalgique, rappelle aussi les grandes épopées de la colonisation francophone de l’Ontario. Ces studios de création ou cette résidence d’artistes, endroit idéal pour les arts visuels, sont situés au centre du Canada, à mi-chemin entre l’Atlantique et le Pacifique, là où les étoiles deviennent les topazes de la nuit.

Ce qu’on offre
D’abord l’espace et, l’espace de travail déterminés selon les besoins de l’artiste. Les espaces polyvalents permettent d’y faire de la peinture, de la sculpture, de l’installation, etc. L’atelier de menuiserie, le Bar à clou, est équipé des outils de base. Un magasin d’objets trouvés est disponible autant pour l’inspiration que pour l’utilisation dans une œuvre. Le peintre apporte ses pinceaux, le musicien son instrument et l’écrivain son ordi.

Les personnes qui séjournent aux Ateliers Topaz jouissent de l’accès à la cuisine et sont responsables de préparer leurs repas. Toutefois Laurent peut aussi leur cuisiner de petits plats typiquement canadiens-français aux besoins ou aux désirs. 

Topaz possède deux suites avec lit double et une chambre avec lit simple. Chacune possède sa salle de toilette avec douche. Ces installations évoquent admirablement le style des années 1960. 

Pour la baignade, le Lac des Cœurs se situe à deux kilomètres à l’est. Pour le canotage ou la pèche, la rivière Opasatika est deux kilomètres à l’ouest. Pour se déplacer, il y a de vieux vélos ou la marche. Pour un frais très raisonnable, votre hôte peut aussi vous conduire ou organiser un déplacement vers Kapuskasing à l’est ou vers Hearst à l’ouest. 

Les matériaux d’artistes ne sont pas disponibles dans la région. Il est donc important de faire vos achats avant votre séjour, à moins que vous travailliez avec des matériaux que l’on peut se procurer dans des magasins ordinaires ou même en nature.

b) the use of visualisation and interactive technologies in the visual arts; and
c) the creation of digital media with intelligent projections that may include 3D animations.

Artists selected to participate in the programme will be exposed to a body of technical knowledge enabling them to explore forms, methods of display, and concepts not possible in their own studios as well as new ways of thinking and working in a unique collaborative environment. Christie will provide funding, facilities and technical mentoring to make its visualisation technologies accessible to resident artists.

1. DURATION OF PROGRAMME AND RESIDENCY

The Artist in Residence programme will have a term of two years. It will operate on an annual basis, hosting one artist position for a full year, or the equivalent in short term residencies. Each resident artist will have the opportunity to work from two to twelve months, depending on the size of the project, creating a work of art using Christie’s projection systems.

2. FACILITIES AND ARTIST BENEFITS

Each artist will be provided with studio space at Christie’s facilities at the Communitech HUB in downtown Kitchener, Ontario. The space is accessible to the resident artist 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. In addition, each resident artist will have access to the following:

b) reimbursement of housing expenses for rent of up to $1,000 per month (the artist may bring family members but the artist will be required to cover any additional costs);
c) a stipend of $1,200 per month to cover food and personal expenses of the artist;
d) reimbursement of travel costs of up to $1,000 for the artist to travel from the artist’s residence to Kitchener, Ontario (the artist may bring family members but the artist will be required to cover any additional costs);
e) a workstation/studio at Christie’s facility at 809 Wellington Street North, Kitchener, Ontario
f) access to software
g) use of a bicycle supplied by Cycle CAFKA;

An important consideration in the selection of artists will be the extent that an applicant will take advantage of the resources and technical support provided by Christie. Artists will be selected for a residency based on:
a) the quality of past work;
b) the potential impact of the residency on the artist and their work;
c) the ability of the artist to master new technologies; and
d) a demonstrated commitment to working at Christie’s Kitchener facilities with their team and resources.

3. EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMING / OUTREACH

The Christie/CAFKA residency is intended to benefit the cultural life of the City of Kitchener and the Region of Waterloo. As part of the Artist in Residence programme, resident artists will be expected to undertake a selection of the following, to be agreed upon between CAFKA and the artist:
a) public lecture;
b) public workshop;
c) video interviews to be broadcast on CAFKA TV and posted on the CAFKA web site;
d) blog or vlog, to be posted to the CAFKA website; and

Seven Below, in partnership with Burlington City Arts, is pleased to request proposals for six-week residencies at The Barn near Burlington, Vermont. The residencies are designed to provide artists with a peaceful, inspiring, and supportive environment for individual and/or collaborative new work. The residency program is open to artists at any stage of their career and working in various visual arts media.

Residents will live and work at The Barn, a uniquely restored property on 65 acres offering magnificent views of Mt. Mansfield and the Green Mountains. The 200-year-old Alan Irish Barn was reconstructed in 1996 and served as the recording and rehearsal facility for Phish, Trey Anastasio, and other musicians. In 2006, to support the activities of the Seven Below Arts Initiative, The Barn was retrofitted to provide living and workspace for up to three artists in residence at a time. The six chosen residents are selected from a diverse range of national and international applicants, and they are provided with a $2,000 materials and living stipend to help support the creation of new work.
They are joined by Seven Below Studio Manager and working resident R. Elliott Katz from Cabot, Vermont.

2012 RESIDENCY DATES
There are two residency sessions each year. Due to the mixed use of the residency space, we cannot release 2012 start and end dates at this moment. Typically, Session 1 begins the first week of June and ends in mid July (June 1st – July 13th), and Session 2 begins in mid July and ends the last week of August (July 15th – August 26th).

Fire Island Artist Residency announces the 2012 application cycle
www.fireislandartistresidency.org

« We live at an unusual moment, when queer and trans sensibilities are flourishing in a way I have not seen since the ‘70s. It’s important to seize this moment and create opportunities that give safe and nourishing space to this phenomenon, to counteract the environment of distrust and even persecution that remains our everyday lot, despite our many advances. FIAR does this in spades. » —AA Bronson
“Clothing is optional. Talent and vision are not. » —Evan J. Garza

Fire Island Artist Residency (FIAR), the first artist-in-residency program in the United States exclusively for GLBT emerging artists, is now accepting applications for its 2012 Summer Residency Program to take place in Cherry Grove, an historic GLBT community of Fire Island, New York. Selections for 2012 residents will be made by esteemed jurors Dan Cameron, Senior Curator, Orange County Museum of Art, and by co-founder of Gran Fury and celebrated contemporary artist Marlene McCarty.

Emerging queer artists from across the U.S. working in contemporary visual arts are encouraged to apply by May 4, 2012. Visit www.fireislandartistresidency.org to apply.

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
2012 FIAR Application deadline:  May 4, 2012
Program dates:  July 21–August 19, 2012
Application fee:  25 USD

FIAR will provide free live/work space to five selected artists-in-residence, who will work, relax, and immerse themselves in the Fire Island community, during which time they will be visited by a handful of prestigious and renowned visiting artists who will commune with residents and provide support and feedback throughout the duration of program. Communal dinners and salons with visiting artists, and presentations by each about their work, provide unique opportunities for residents to learn from accomplished contemporary artists and discuss issues of theory, practice, identity, art history, and queerness.

Visiting artists for the 2012 FIAR Summer Program will include several renowned and celebrated contemporary practitioners, including: Nayland Blake, AA Bronson, Taylor Davis, Jim Hodges, Jack Pierson, and Mary Ellen Strom.
The 2012 residency will be the second FIAR summer program to take place in Cherry Grove and the first to span four weeks. Co-founded in 2011 by artist and educator Chris Bogia, and curator and writer Evan J. Garza, Fire Island Artist Residency first inaugurated its program in August of 2011 with five emerging artists – Travis Boyer, Ryan Brewer, Elijah Burgher, A.K. Burns, and Katherine Hubbard – who converted a modest beach house into a makeshift live/work space for a two-week residency, and joined a historic group of gay, lesbian, transgendered, and queer artists who have contributed to the legacy of art-making in this deeply unique beach environment.

Fire Island Artist Residency is currently processing its incorporation and 501c3 status, and is fiscally sponsored by Visual AIDS, New York. The 2012 FIAR Summer Program is also made possible by the generous support of Sikkema Jenkins & Co., New York and the generosity of individual donors. Visit www.fireislandartistresidency.org/support for more information.


ABOUT FIRE ISLAND ARTIST RESIDENCY
Founded in 2011 by Chris Bogia and Evan J. Garza, Fire Island Artist Residency (FIAR) is a nonprofit organization that seeks to bring the best gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered emerging contemporary artists to Fire Island, a place long-steeped in GLBT history, to create, commune, and contribute to the location’s rich artistic history. FIAR offers live/work spaces for artists who will participate in a summer residency while immersed in the Fire Island community.
FIAR is dedicated to artists engaged in contemporary creative practices. Leading innovators in contemporary art will serve as mentors, living alongside participants and providing them with one-on-one studio visits.

In this way, FIAR hopes to bring both new creative perspectives and prestigious art professionals together in this extraordinary location to foster the creation — and preservation — of queerness in contemporary art.

AAMI – Rapport sur les normes d’emploi et  la gestion des ressources humaines

Montréal, le 7 mars 2012 – L’AAMI publie un rapport sur les normes d’emploi et la gestion des ressources humaines dans les centres canadiens en arts médiatiques indépendants

L’Alliance des arts médiatiques indépendants est un organisme national de services aux arts qui promeut et met de l’avant les intérêts de la communauté vibrante des arts médiatiques, représentant ainsi plus de 80 organismes indépendants à travers le Canada dans les disciplines de la production film, de la vidéo et des nouveaux médias ainsi que dans les secteurs de la distribution et de l’installation.

Puisque l’AAMI considère les normes d’emploi comme étant une question prioritaire, elle a commandé une étude approfondie des normes d’emploi dans les centres d’artistes en arts médiatiques auprès des consultantes MDR-Burgess. Cette étude avait pour objectif de créer des outils de référence, incluant des recommandations afin d’améliorer la gestion des ressources humaines dans ce secteur. La présente étude démontre que malgré l’excellent service qu’ils offrent, les centres d’artistes en arts médiatiques font face à d’importants problèmes de ressources humaines dû à un manque de financement. Les salaires de base de la présente étude sont comparables aux résultats d’autres études, c’est-à-dire qu’ils sont bas par rapport à d’autres secteurs sans but lucratif.

Les compétences exigées aux postes d’employés et de gestionnaires sont grandes. Le personnel doit avoir une connaissance de la production médiatique ainsi que du secteur des arts médiatiques (et, dans quelques cas, de l’art contemporain). Il doit également avoir des connaissances financières et des compétences dans la rédaction de demandes de subvention. Environ la moitié des postes exigent des études collégiales ou universitaires ainsi qu’une ou deux années d’expérience.

L’étude permet de dresser un portrait de la réalité actuelle :
•    Les travailleurs sont jeunes et hautement qualifiés
•    Deux tiers des travailleurs doivent faire des heures supplémentaires, jusqu’à 10 à 20 heures par  semaine.
•    Les centres d’artistes autogérés dépensent peu en avantages sociaux, mais des plans d’indemnisation sont offerts dans la mesure du possible.
•    Il y a peu de perfectionnement professionnel, mais les organismes s’efforcent d’offrir des opportunités.
•    Le roulement du personnel est élevé, 40 % des travailleurs occupant leur poste depuis deux ans ou moins.
Le présent rapport comprend la recommandation d’une structure salariale s’appuyant sur les données salariales actuelles et tenant compte des différences régionales et du financement au fonctionnement. Le rapport inclut également des pratiques exemplaires et des exemples astucieux où dans un contexte de ressources financières limitées, les organismes trouvent des façons originales de répondre à leurs besoins en gestion de ressources humaines. Les organismes sont intéressés à améliorer leur gestion des ressources humaines puisqu’il s’agit d’un élément clé afin de créer davantage de stabilité à long terme au sein du secteur des arts médiatiques.

Ce rapport parait quelques semaines suite à la publication des résultats d’une étude par  Hill Strategies Recherches Inc qui indique que la participation des canadiens aux arts, à la culture et aux activités liées au patrimoine a atteint un record en 2010. Étant donné que le grand public valorise les arts plus que jamais et que l’une des plus grandes priorités du gouvernement actuel est de renforcer la qualité de la main d’œuvre canadienne, la solution semble évidente : l’investissement dans les arts est crucial pour la santé et le bien être au pays.
