The Grantham Foundation officially launches its 2023 call for projects for artists and researchers.

It is with great pleasure that the Grantham Foundation officially launches its 2023 call for projects.

Once again this year, the Foundation is awarding a creation prize of $10,000 along with a one-month residency at the Foundation and a research prize of $5,000 also accompanied by a one-month residency.

The deadline for applications is 15 July 2022.

CREATION AWARD:

The Foundation’s residency program has been enriched and now runs over an approximately 12-month cycle. It includes a four-week stay at the Foundation dedicated to research, two artist presentations designed for a school audience, and a production grant. The program aims to culminate – subject to grants being obtained – in a solo exhibition presented at the Foundation, accompanied by a publication and public programmes.

The initial stay offers the artist in residence the opportunity to develop a research project on the Foundation’s premises, as well as to build ties with the various communities in the region. Two professional meetings are planned: one with the Foundation’s education team, to discuss the artist’s presentations for school audiences; and the other with a professional in the arts or environment, selected by the Foundation on the basis of the proposed project.

By mutual agreement, the artist in residence and the Grantham Foundation can decide to develop an exhibition project at the Foundation. The artist agrees to work with the Foundation’s team and to participate in the search for funding. Any production resulting from work undertaken at the Foundation must mention the Foundation’s support.

Through its long-term commitment, the Foundation wishes to provide meaningful support for the development and dissemination of thoughtful, innovative projects whose subject, materials or process reflects the importance of the aesthetic and global issues related to the environment in the Anthropocene age.

RESEARCH AWARD:

The Foundation’s residency program has been enriched and now runs over an approximately 12-month cycle. It includes a four-week stay at the Foundation dedicated to research and writing, a presentation of ongoing work for a general audience, and a research grant. The program aims to culminate – subject to grants being obtained – in the production of a public outreach project at the Foundation that may take the form of a publication, a group exhibition or public programs (a symposium, a series of lectures, workshops, etc.).

The initial stay offers the researcher in residence a focused time to reflect and write on the Foundation’s premises. One professional meeting is planned with a member of the Foundation team or its scientific committee, on the basis of the proposed project. A public event allowing the researcher to share the ongoing research is planned towards the end of the stay.

By mutual agreement, the researcher in residence and the Grantham Foundation can decide to develop a project for public dissemination at the Foundation. The researcher agrees to work in collaboration with the Foundation’s scientific committee and to participate in the search for funding. Any production or publication resulting from work undertaken at the Foundation must mention the Foundation’s support.

Through its long-term commitment, the Foundation wishes to provide meaningful support for the development and dissemination of thoughtful, innovative projects whose subject, materials or process reflects the importance of the aesthetic and global issues related to the environment in the Anthropocene age.
