After, the pieces will be transported to be displayed in the Foundation's three centers located in Spain.

About the Foundation:

The Gabarron Foundation is a non-profit organization, cultural center, and art gallery located in the Carriage House Center for the Arts that strives to inspire vision and creativity in audiences of all ages, races, and creeds. As an organization that values diversity in the highest regard, it is our mission to promote cultural awareness, art appreciation, and education for the community. The Foundation values the interpretation and exchange of contemporary art and culture, as strives to be an echo chamber for the Spanish land outside its borders and, at the same time, a mirror of the American culture.

FLACC - Residency Programme at FLACC Workplace

Open call for visual artists in various media and disciplines

FLACC is a workplace for visual artists and creates the conceptual, organizational and technical conditions for realizing unique artist projects. Every year, FLACC selects ten artists to set up a new project. In each annual selection, FLACC aims to strike a balance between national and international artists, between beginners and artists with experience, between autonomous art and/or research projects and artists that deal in more concrete terms with the historical, geographical or social context of the workplace.

FLACC has metal and woodworking workshops, a digital studio (film and photography), and a foundry with a furnace and kilns for ceramics, bronze and glass applications, and an extensive workspace. The staff is knowledgeable about the production possibilities of nearby workplaces and collaborates with those workplaces and with schools and companies to give the artists the best possible support and assistance.

The call is open for all visual artists. Due to the diversity of our workshops, the application is open for projects in various media and disciplines. Projects with a notice of the specific geographical, cultural,
social or historical situation of FLACC (or Genk/Belgium), challenging the notion of a ´workplace´ or with the specific technical possibilities of FLACC are preferable. The work period is three-month full time or around 90 days, divided in several smaller work periods between January 2014 and December 2014. FLACC offers an accommodation, a workplace, covered travel expenses as well as a small production budget.

Application procedure
Please use our aapplication form for your application. The application should include a well-defined project proposal, a thoroughly calculated budget (download excel sheet), a preferable time frame and your resume (text and images and/or video).

More info about the procedure can be found in the application form.

Addo - Pontypool Artist in Residence

Call for applications:

We are inviting applications from artists with a collaborative/participative approach to undertake a residency in Pontypool that will draw out and address issues of physical, social, cultural, and environmental connectivity across Pontypool and between Pontypool and its surrounding area. This will involve considering the links between communities, the exploration of cultural tensions, and the relationship between the urban and the rural presented by Pontypool’s heritage landscape. Taking place from August 2012 to January 2013, the residency will act as a pilot project for the Arts Council of Walesʼ Residency Programme and will be an integral part of an Arts and Humanities Research Council Networking Grant funded research project called In-between: Cultural Regeneration in Market Towns, being led by Intersections (a research unit based at Newcastle University), which is examining how participative public arts and artistsʼ practice may impact on the communities, identities and economies of market towns – working with Pontypool in South Wales, Dumfries in South West Scotland and Hexham in North East England.

This opportunity is open to UK and International Artists.
Applicants must demonstrate:
• Creative originality and professionalism in their work
• The ability and desire to work collaboratively with the public and other partners as part of their creative practice
• A willingness to immerse themselves in the life and culture of the area
• An understanding of the issues of connectivity (and the paradoxical tensions) inherent within regeneration schemes and partnership working
• A critical awareness of the roles that artists and cultural activity may/may not play in the regeneration of urban areas
• The artist must be aware of and abide by the laws for working with children and vulnerable adults, should they undertake such work as part of the residency. In the event of manufacture/installation of artworks by the artist, the artist must demonstrate current and appropriate indemnity insurance relevant to the artist in person and to any object/s to be manufactured.
