Location One Fellowship

16th February 2010 by Maura McHugh

The Arts Council is looking for submissions for its Location One Fellowship:

Location One is a not-for-profit art centre in New York devoted to convergence between visual, performing and digital arts in a time of rapidly changing technology. It operates an international residency programme where emerging and established artists can experiment with new forms of artistic expression, particularly those involving new technologies.

The Arts Council offers an annual Fellowship to one artist to facilitate his/her participation in the international residency programme at Location One for 10 months, in order to develop his/her practice and create new work. In addition to the support and resources provided through Location One, the Fellowship also includes accommodation and a stipend.

Purpose and priorities of award

The Location One Fellowship is offered so as to provide an artist with the dedicated time, space and resources to concentrate on the development of practice and the production of new work, and to experiment with advanced technological tools and delivery systems. The Fellowship also provides opportunities for an artist to meet, interact and exchange with his/her international counterparts, to develop new contacts and networks and to benefit from an extended period of time in New York City.

Applicants must demonstrate that the space and time for development, the opportunity for engagement and the access to the resources and facilities at Location One would be of significant value in their professional and artistic development. Prior experience in the use of new technology and/or new media is not essential; however, an ambition to engage with the creative potential that is offered by Location One must be clearly demonstrated by applicants.

What is provided?

The Fellowship includes a studio space at Location One, accommodation and a monthly stipend of $2,000. The overall value of the award is in the region of €37,000.

The working studio space at Location One is accessible seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The resident artist will have access to Apple Mac computers with multimedia production software. S/he will have access to Location One’s digital and video equipment on a shared basis during working hours. Live two-way interactive streaming technology is also made available to residents as needed.

The deadline for applications is 5.30pm Friday, 5 March 2010, and further information about the Fellowship is available from the web site.
