You can be part of MacDowell’s artist community in 2016. Artists from the Middle East working in all artistic disciplines are encouraged to apply for residency. The next application deadline is September 15th, 2015 for the Winter/Spring 2016 session. Those accepted will participate in a residency of up to two months in Peterborough, New Hampshire, USA.
One of the world’s leading artist residency programs, MacDowell serves more than 275 artists each year, many of whom travel internationally to participate. With the guidance of the Arab Fund for Arts & Culture (AFAC), MacDowell is reaching out to give artists working in regions of political and social change the peace of mind to concentrate fully on their work, to share ideas freely with their peers from other cultures, and to develop new perspectives in their creative practices.
The deadline for Summer 2016 residencies is January 15th, 2016. Please indicate AFAC when asked, “How did you learn about MacDowell’s residency program?”
