Welcome to the Art Kibbutz Application Page
– the International Jewish Artist Residency – proudly announces residency
programs for 2017 entitled: Embracing
Opportunity: Strengthening Ourselves, Our Community, Our World. These
programs continue Art Kibbutz’s commitment to non-hierarchical, collaborative
communities where artists work alongside one another to strengthen their
identities and our world. In this time of emotionally charged speech and
impulsive acts by leaders and citizens alike, artists will find the time
and perspective provided by novel supportive surroundings to assimilate what
is, and visualize what can be.
Emerging and seasoned artists alike will join
these residencies to assess and process experiences in this era of social
change and challenge. Artists will produce work on any topic, while engaging in
periodic group discussions encompassing aspects of Jewish tradition and social
ethics. We aim to define common ground and increase the reach and influence of
our art empowered by our engagement with Jewish culture, history, and
spirituality – regardless of individual identity as Jews or non-Jews.
Art Kibbutz supports artists working on their
own projects, as well as collaborations with other artists or linked to other
communities. Emboldened by participation in this residency, artists will be
better equipped to utilize their creative skills to defend those most in peril,
counter anger with constructive acts, meet hatred with regard and love for our
neighbors, and work towards the goal of healing the world.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all slots are filled, with final notification one month before the residency begins. We suggest that you apply as soon as possible, so that if you are accepted into the residency program you can secure studio space during the session that is best for your schedule.
We look forward to reviewing your materials, and thank you for your interest in Art Kibbutz.
