Ebb & Flow is a series of five-week residencies based on the premise that Southern Louisiana can be seen as a microcosm of the global environment, manifesting both the challenges and possibilities inherent in human interaction with urban and natural ecosystems. We ask artists to describe in detail how the region will affect their work, to propose a public component to their residency and to suggest ways in which they will engage with the local community. A Studio in the Woods, located in the Louisiana wetlands, has observed firsthand the dynamic nature of this rapidly changing territory which in turn affects the entire northern hemisphere. We envision this as a powerful context for the exploration of critical thinking, the development of new ideas and strategies, and using the creative process as a catalyst for social change.

We invite artists to submit applications to our environmental residency series titled Ebb & Flow: Dialogues between art and water, addressing the ecological challenges exemplified by Southern Louisiana. The call is open to artists of all disciplines who have demonstrated an established dialogue with environmental issues and a commitment to seeking and plumbing new depths. Artists are invited to design their own interface with the public and are encouraged to propose ways to engage the larger community of New Orleans and beyond.

Conversations in Contemporaneity

Associazione Culturale Civilta' del Mediterraneo
(New York NY)

Brief Description of the Organization
Associazione Culturale Civilta’ del Mediteranneo has been active in Otranto, Salento Puglia since 2001, promoting and curating summer workshops and residencies for international students and artists in the Aragonese Castle of Otranto.

“Conversations in Contemporaneity” is a new residency program in the Castle De Viti De Marco of Casamassella, just outside Otranto, near Porto Badisco and the sea.  Here, 11 visual artists, writers, musicians, archaeologists and scientists, will do their own work and share a dialogue on contemporaneity during the month. The spirit of the residency will be of extreme informality and flexibility, in order to allow all participants to devote themselves to their work with minimal interruption. Two scholars/critics will be on location for a period of 10-30 days each, engaging in shared conversation with the residents, bringing together artistic and scientific disciplines.

Ideas and invention have always inhabited the Castle of Casamassella, from the presence of renowned economist Antonio De Viti De Marco, poet and writer Girolamo Comi, and philosopher Benedetto Croce. This residency program aims to continue the rich tradition within the Castle De Viti De Marco.
Accommodations for participants include private rooms within the castle (with accompanying terraces); two meals a day – five days a week; shared studio space; and regional excursions including: Lecce, Gallipoli, Galatina, and boat trips departing from the nearby harbor of Tricase, among others.

Art Teachers - Middle and Upper School

Avenues The World School- New York, NY
Avenues: The World School is looking for art teachers for Middle School (grades 5-8) and Upper School (grades 9-12) classes for its Chelsea campus in New York City. In the 2013-2014 school year, the Upper School will have only ninth and tenth grades, adding one grade a year for each of the next two.

Art is an intrinsic part of the curriculum, with work in many different media—painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture and photography. Teachers will use a multi-media approach so students learn and continue to display creative expression in many ways. Inter-disciplinary projects will connect art to other topics being explored in the classroom. Art appreciation will also be a fundamental part of the curriculum with visits to artists’ studios, museums, galleries and local parks. Work with visiting artists from the Chelsea neighborhood around the school will be an integral part of their experience.

The art teachers should be creative in the use of age-appropriate technologies, expert in communication with parents of students of these ages and excited to work with children and adolescents and their parents.

Candidates should possess a B.A. or B.S. and commensurate teaching experience of students of these ages, as well as being practicing artists. Studio management, including the use and maintenance of a kiln, are important skills for the teacher. Proficiency in either Chinese or Spanish is a plus, as we are emphasizing acquisition of both languages throughout the school.
