Deadline: 15 August 2016
The Harvard University’s South Asia Institute is currently inviting applications for its Arts Program with an aim to serve as a resource across all disciplines to explore critical issues of South Asia through the lens of art and design.
The Program welcomes applications from emerging artists in South Asia to come to Harvard University to participate in interdisciplinary discourse with students and faculty on global issues relevant to South Asia.
Four artists will be selected for the academic year to Harvard University in Cambridge, Ma for a total of two weeks. Two artists will arrive in the fall from October 30 – November 13, 2016, and another two artists will arrive March 19 – April 2, 2017.
- Each artist will receive $1,000 USD of discretionary funds (not accounting regional taxes) after their visit.
- This modest discretionary fund is meant to cover the artist’s exhibit related costs and cultural excursions in the New England area.
- The costs of each artist’s economy travel, accommodation for the two weeks, and meals will be provided.
- Applicants must be a South Asian artist of any medium who uses your work to draw attention to the areas of economic, policy, and social issues.
- This opportunity is meant to recognize and showcase the artwork of up-and-coming artists who would greatly benefit from facilitated connections with Harvard faculty and students and the opportunity to show their work at Harvard University.
- Up-and-coming artists must either be between 20 – 35 years of age or have limited international exhibits and residencies.
- Although formal professional training at an accredited institution is not a requirement, artists with professional training will receive preference.
