CALL FOR RESIDENCY: Pulau Ubin Artists-in-Residency Programme
Deadline date: July 31, 2014 City: Pulau Ubin, Singapore; Source: The Artists Village
The Artists Village – Pulau Ubin Artists-in-Residency Programme is conducting an open call for artists to apply for the residency. This Artist In Residency (AIR) program is located in Pulau Ubin. The AIR program will be offering artists an opportunity to stay and work on the island of Pulau Ubin. We have a vision to use the island as a canvas to create art. The artists will be staying in the residency house equipped with basic workshop tools. This residency is an attempt to get cultural and art practitioners to work in close contact with a comparatively unspoiled natural environment in Singapore. We hope to provide a chance for artists to develop a different perspective from the experience of living on the island. At the same time, we recommend intending participants to inculcate a view towards working in and with nature and eco-friendlier art practices in this unique residency.
Since 2011, the programme had present many SIngapore and international artists. These artists include Mike Cooper, Vichukorn Tangpaiboon, Jay Koh, Dennis Tan, Mike HJ Chang, Wang Chuyu, Zhang Kexin, Jacquelyn Soo, Ian Carlo Jaucian, Yuzuru Maeda, Wu Jun Han, Truong Thien, etc.
This project is organized by The Artists Village.
The application for 2014-2015 is open now. For this cycle, we are having collaborations with our overseas partners for an exchange residency programme. There are two parts to the residency programme. For the first part, artists will stay and work on Pulau Ubin in Singapore. As for the second part, the resident artists will be have an opportunity to attend another one of the residency programmes organised by our collaborating partners in overseas (China / Vietnam / South Korea). Therefore we regret that we are only able to accept applications from Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents. More information on our overseas collaborators will be release soon. Applicants are highly encouraged to propose projects which touch on environmental issues or Pulau Ubin itself.
