VAI Awards 2022: Call for Applications – Exchange!

“a residency award that provides funding for two or more artists to come together to exchange and create understanding across different cultural contexts.”

Exchange! The goal of this award is for VAI members to come together to exchange and create understanding of different cultural contexts. As we see on a daily basis, our cultural backgrounds are what shapes us and inform our viewpoint and areas of practice. It is our way of living, how we see the world. But, this may also present a challenge as we seek to participate fully in the visual arts. Therefore, the purpose of this award is to provide support to artists who may wish to collaborate with each other and create an opportunity for growth and better understanding across different cultural identities.

The award will provide funding of 3000 Euro. It is open only to current VAI Members. Group applications must ensure that all members of the group applying are current members. The successful awardees will be paid in two tranches, 1,500 Euro upon provision of an updated version of the plan that they submitted, and the balance upon submission of a final report of their experience and findings, which may also be published in The Visual Artists News Sheet and/or The Manual area of VAI’s website.

The Application window will open on Monday, 2nd May 2022.
The deadline for applications is Friday, 1st July 2022. at 5pm
Decisions will be notified before Friday, 29th July 2022.
