Alliance Française de Manille is pleased to announce the launch of its fourth artist residency grants program (AFM-PARP). The AFM-PARP offers Filipino artists the possibility of a structured visit to France for a period of two to three months. The residency will be hosted by a French non-profit cultural organization, an artist residence, or an artist-run initiative. It is conceived more as a professional opportunity rather than a project-based grant. Its aim is to enrich the experience of Filipino artists by providing them with the opportunity to initiate contact with the contemporary art scene in France.
The recipient of the second AFM-PARP grant was sculptor Ronald “Riel” Jaramillo Hilario in 2012 and the third recipient, glass sculptor Christina Osorio “Goldie” Poblador, has just came back from a 3-month residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris.
The AFM-PARP is open to all Filipino visual artists: painters, sculptors, multi-media artists, and photographers. One residency is offered annually, during the spring or autumn months. The AFM-PARP provides a financial grant to cover costs of travel and living expenses. The grantee may also avail of one session of free French language classes at AFM.
The AFM-PARP application period is from September 1 to November 15 2013; deadline for submission of applications is on November 15, 2013.
The AFM-PARP application form/brochure is available at Alliance Française de Manille, 209 Nicanor Garcia St., Bel-Air II, Makati City. It will also be available at major cultural institutions, museums, art galleries, and can be downloaded from the AFM website at www.alliance.ph.
