"Call for Artists: South 2 - The Journey, Residencies and Networks"
2004-12-06 until 2005-12-31
Craft Victoria
FITZROY, VI, AU Australia

And so the journey begins... The South Project is very pleased to announce its first round of residency opportunities across the southern hemisphere. In July 2004 representatives of over fourteen different countries gathered together in Melbourne to discuss how they might work together, this gathering was the focal point of South 1: The Gathering. Despite great differences of language, colour, culture, economics and history, one element brought everyone together - the condition of living in the south. What is normally a condition of isolation, has now become an opportunity for collaboration.

In 2005 the South Project is focused on developing residencies and collaborative exchange opportunities for the extensive network of artists and cultural workers that has developed since the initiation of this project. In this sense the South Project is working primarily as a vehicle for artists to explore ways of linking different countries of the south, and furthering a dialogue on progressive art production away from the epicentres of the art world. Artistic creation is very much dependent on experience of cultural difference. To this end, the residency program being developed is an important foundation of the South Project in enabling artists to spend time in participating countries.

The South Project residencies are open to arts and crafts practitioners from through out the southern hemisphere. Each residency has its own set of criteria and application deadline, details for which are included in the residency outlines on our website: www.southproject.org/residencies.htm.
