2012 International Land Art Workshop

Open Call for Residency Applicants

Deadline: Accepted, until spots are filled

Date: October 5-19, 2012
Venue: Sang Arts Village, Sang near Tamale in Northern Region of Ghana

International Land Art Workshop is a two-week group residency by the NKA Foundation. It is designed to bring together creative persons such as artists, architects and engineers to create works by use of materials from the environment. The participants will live and work together in an Arts Village in a rural township for knowledge sharing and cross-fertilization of skills over the two-week period. By land art (or earthworks, environmental art) we imply: (1) Works created with materials from the environment involving air, water, earth, stone, and wood, or (2) Site-specific installation (with natural or industrial materials) within a landscape to create an aesthetic experience. Thus, the theme is open; but permanency of work is encouraged, ephemeral would be only if it is the most appropriate means to communicating the idea. The realized work may become a part of the Arts Village or sited in a public space in nearby village.

Organizers will provide accommodation and food; an accepted applicant will contribute participation fee of $100 / €70 toward food. The international participant is responsible for own travel costs and proposed project. We suggest that participants apply for travel grants through their national art councils or other sources. To apply, send CV, statement/sketch of your proposed work, and a sample of your existing work to Submissions will be reviewed until space is filled.

Workshop Director: Stuart Frost, Department of Art and Design Education, Telemark University College, Notodden, Norway.
