Joya: AiR / spring residencies for artists and writers 2019

Share

Category:

Country:

Joya: AiR is a not for profit arts residency developed by artists for artists of every conceivable discipline. Consider Joya: AiR not only a unique, stimulating and contemplative environment for international artists and writers, but as a meeting point for divergent and creative thinking. This is a multi-disciplinary residency, self determined, critical and profoundly engaging.

Joya: arte + ecología / AiR is an "off-grid" interdisciplinary residency rooted in the crossroads of art, ecology and sustainable living practice. It is located in the heart of the Parque Natural Sierra María - Los Vélez, in the north of the province of Almería, Andalucía. Joya: AiR offers abundant time and space for residents to make, think, explore and learn from their surroundings.

Joya: AiR supports a range of disciplines including, but not limited to, visual art, writing, music, dance, curatorial and film. Founded by Simon and Donna Beckmann in 2009, the Joya: arte + ecología / AiR programme is grounded in the foundation that dynamic and sustainable creative activity is the backbone to regenerating the land that has been slowly abandoned over the last fifty years. 

Since 2009, Joya: AiR has welcomed over 600 artists and creatives to realise their projects within one of the most unique and beautiful regions of the country. This is one of the sunniest regions of Europe receiving over 3000 hours of sunlight a year.

Residents have access to studio space and 20 hectares of land. Accommodation (private room with attached bathroom) and meals are included, as is collection and return to the nearest public transport system.

New international bursaries for UK bloggers

Share

City:

The British Council is thrilled to offer a new opportunity for talented UK arts bloggers and writers to travel internationally.

Bloggers have had a huge influence on UK performance, but opportunities for paid work or career development are few and far between. To address this, we’re piloting a programme awarding bursaries to three UK bloggers – enabling them to have an international experience, develop their skills and build connections outside the UK.

The winners will spend time in either Lagos, Romania or a country of your choice, meeting new contacts and discovering the richness of cultural exchange. This opportunity also includes two hours of mentoring with a member of our judging panel, led by Lyn Gardner. We ask winners to produce one or more pieces of work about performance inspired by their visit – to be published by the British Council, by themselves or by another publisher.

We're looking for arts bloggers who live in the UK and have at least two years' experience of blogging, writing, vlogging or podcasting about arts. There's full information about how to apply on our website. Get your applications in before midday on 29 November 2018.
