Culture is the true identity power. In this context the major role of the artists is to promote through art cultural
diversity and preserve common values. Intercultural dialogue through art is an important instrument. Art is not a means - art is a space in which everything is possible, in which different times, subjects and objects, sometimes divergent,
coexist. And not just coexist, but communicate and create values. Through art, culture, tolerance, initiating a dialogue among nations, among various artistic expressions, a real dialog among real people. Culture communicates in the
language of heart, which is understood by everybody. For artists, communication is essential – both with the audience
– the art consumer, and with representatives of national and international art groups. For application form or questions please write to bszechy@yahoo.com

The Guide outlines a step-by-step 'nuts and bolts' process for achieving accessible practices by setting the standard and illustrating how cultural organizations can make it happen. It features examples of 'best practices' that illustrate specific methods for opening existing programs, services, facilities, and activities to individuals with disabilities and older adults, as artists, arts administrators, board members, volunteers, teachers, students and audience members. This online text takes advantage of Internet technology by presenting and linking to a wide variety of resources that assist cultural organizations.

INFORMATION of the Artist in Residence Program in Hungary
http://www.bszechy@yahoo.com

deadline 3/25/2008 INFORMATION of the Artist in Residence Program in Hungary International Artist Residencies, Budapest/Balatonfured/A.I.R. Dates: Tuesday, May 20 - Thursday, June 12; Thuesday, June 17 - Thursday, July 10; Tuesday, July 15 - Thursday, August 7, 2008 Hungarian Multicultural Center, Inc. (HMC) is an award winning 501©3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting international art and the understanding of world cultures, through high quality art exhibitions, cultural exchanges and related educational programs. Based in Dallas and Budapest, the organization operates throughout the world. Incorporated in 1990, HMC has already received awards for artistic merit from the Hungarian National Art Found and Embassy of the United States of America, Budapest among others. The HMC's projects (exhibitions, seminars, lectures, and educational programming) focus on international art works as embodiments of individual artist's visions, which are understood to be informed--to a varying extent--by personal, local and global cultural influences on the artist. AIR is an international meeting point for the arts. Its aim is to support and encourage contemporaryartistic creation, research and debate. One of HMC's main activities is its Artist in Residence Program. The purpose of this program is to offer a platform to promote the exchange of artistic discourses from artists with different artistic backgrounds and from different geographical origins. The program is designed to encourage the exchange of ideas in order to broaden creative horizons. By encouraging this cultural diversity, we also hope to be able to update the debate between the artists themselves and between other professionals from the art world and the general public. HMC considers art as a dynamic social force that is capable of inspiring individuality and of defining groups. Our Artist in Residence Program also includes exhibitions, artist talks, film, workshops and other activities. HMC is planning and exchange program with other European Artist in Residence Program, so that the resident artists would be able to get in touch with other artistic centers. The current problems that have arisen from a lack of understanding of the varying cultures around the world today and it becomes even more apparent that HMC's projects address a number of very important needs. Visual art -- one of the few languages that transcends all boundaries -- offers a way to understand not only ourselves and one another, but it offers a venue for greatness, which must be supported if we as a civilization are to move forward. This is HMC's goal. After our 10 years anniversary we have published a book. The book includes all artists at the HMC's residencies, ntroductory by Dr. Geller Katalin-art historian. The book cost $16.00 + shipping and handling $4.00. The HMC invites interested visual artists and writers to submit application for its residency programs in Hungary. Its principal focus is an international residency program to which artists from around the world are invited. The goal is to provide a supportive community with uninterrupted time to work. The residencies offer participants a unique opportunity to interact with other artists representing a variety of cultures and backgrounds. Accepted applicants are expected to speak and understand English. Approximately 12 - 12 (total 36) artists are invited for each section. The residence offers 2 beds per room/bath as living quarters. Studio, room, breakfast and lunch, transportation to Balatonfured, exhibition and site seeing are included in the cost $1,550 (EURO$1,050). Artist must share the studio with other artists. Exhibition: The location of the exhibition and the final final contents of donated work must be decided after due consultation between the program director and the artist. If successful applicant wish to be accompanied by family members or an assistant, it is necessary to consult with HMC beforehand. Expected artists are give at least one informal public slide presentation about their work during their stay at the HMC and to leave one piece of work made during the residency as a donation to the HMC. Exhibition will be arranged. Also, we are organizing an exhibition for the 2006, 2007 participants at Vizivarosi Gallery, Budapest in June-July 2008.
