The Artist in Residence (AIR) Program

Goals of the Artist in Residence Program · Facilitate opportunities for professional artists to work in school and community settings · Facilitate opportunities for students of all ages and abilities to develop skills, knowledge, and appreciation in and of the arts · Facilitate opportunities for teachers of the arts to expand their skills and knowledge · Facilitate opportunities for teachers of non-arts subjects to learn how to strengthen teaching and learning across the curriculum through arts integration techniques Payment of Residency Artists The fixed wage and per diem requirements for AIR Roster artists have been eliminated. Applicants will be required to provide a 'minimum' wage for artists (currently $40/hour). Beyond the minimum wage, however, artists will be allowed to negotiate their own financial arrangements, including wages, travel, per diem, and housing. Residency Requirements To create residencies that best fulfill the needs of their constituents, NAC-imposed programmatic requirements, e.g. length of residency, hours per week, studio space, mid-point assessment, teacher in-service, community outreach, etc. is not required. It is up to the sponsor, the artist and the planning committee to determine what kind of residency would result in the desired outcomes. Residency design should be a collaborative process between artists and sponsors. The AIE Program allows for residencies to be designed for effectiveness and are not conformed to a specific time period. Residencies should provide opportunities for participants to witness and/or participate in the artistic process and offer interactive workshops, lectures, discussions, classroom lessons, teacher training, rehearsals, performances, etc. Typically the sponsor applying for an AIR grant through the Arts in Education Program contacts artists to discuss the residency fees, plan, goals and outcomes. AIR Roster artists should work directly with students, teachers and other populations, which may include cultural institutions, youth organizations, prisons, libraries, senior centers, businesses, etc. AIR sponsors are not required to use artists on our AIR Roster, but are required to substantiate qualifications of non-roster artists on their AIR Grant application. School Residencies In a pre K-12 school setting, residencies will only be funded if they supplement an existing program or provide a service that certified teachers typically cannot offer. It is the applicant organization’s responsibility to make an extremely compelling case otherwise. In any event, artists working under an AIR grant in a pre K-12 setting may never work with students without the supervision of a teacher unless they receive the expressed written consent from the school’s principal. We do encourage AIR Roster artists to market themselves to existing and potential sponsors throughout Nevada. AIE staff is available to assist AIR Roster artists in this effort.

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

INFORMATION of the Artist in Residence Program in Hungary

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.
