Call for Proposals 2015 - CLOSED
Deadline May 15 extended to May 25, 2015
The Summer Sessions are short-term residencies for young artists organized by a network of cultural organizations all over the world.
The Summer Sessions offer a highly productive atmosphere with production support and expert feedback to jumpstart your professional art practice. The result is a pressure cooker in which you develop a project, from concept to presentable work, ready to show.
Are you an ambitious, early career artist, full of ideas and ready to realize your project this summer? Then apply by submitting a video, in which you briefly explain your project, the support you need and why you should be a part of the Summer Sessions.
Below are the results from the Summer Sessions since 2009.
We are constantly doing things with the general purpose to make ourselves and others more content. Could doing nothing however also be a means to this end?
