I am writing to you in relation to a residency which was advertised in the march VAN issue for the Cyland Media Arts Lab, St. Petersburg Russia. After seeing the advertisement I presented them with an application for a six week residency and got accepted. I am starting the residency on August 19th after obtaining a travel and training award from the Arts council of Ireland for fights and per diems.

I wish to thank you and to inform you of my success from your advertisement and work.

Yours Sincerely

Alan James Burns
