BIG SKY MIND OPENS APPLICATION FOR THE 2004 RESIDENCY PROGRAM


Big Sky Mind Artists‚ Projects Foundation, an independent artist-run
organization based in Manila, Philippines, offers studio residencies to
young visual artists at the 18th Avenue Artists Compound in Cubao, Quezon
City.

Located in a warehouse complex, the Compound offers young artists space to
create and develop their work amidst an environment of community,
camaraderie and professional support. The Residency Program grants one-year
studio residencies to young Filipino visual artists and short-term
residencies to foreign visiting artists.

The Compound has three studios for local artists and one studio for foreign
artists. Technical and support facilities include a library of books,
magazines, catalogues, portfolios and other reference material on
contemporary art, a computer lab with cable internet access, scanner,
printer, fax, CD burner and video editing equipment. The Compound can also
arrange for use of TV monitors, VCR, VCD & DVD players, slide and video
projectors.

Each quarter, the Compound presents solo exhibitions by the resident
artists, providing them with a platform to present their work to a wider
public. Talks and workshops by the resident artists are also held each
quarter to broaden public awareness on contemporary art and practice.

Artists who wish to apply for the 2004 Residency Program, may submit their
cv, portfolios, and other supporting documents from 15 January to 15 March
