Alliance Française Launches AFM-PARP 2011
The 2011 Alliance Française de Manille
Philippine Artist Residency Program
Now on its second year, 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, artist residence, or artist-run initiative. It is conceived as a professional opportunity rather than a project-based grant. Its aim is to enrich the experience of Filipino artists by affording them the opportunity for contact with the contemporary art scene in France.
AFM-PARP Program Schedule
Application Period : July to October 2011
Deadline of application : 31 October 2011
Evaluation period : November 2011 to January 2012
Announcement of selected grantee : February 2012
The recipient of the first AFM-PARP grant was printmaker Ma. Victoria “Ambie” Abaño, who has just completed her three-month residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. She was enrolled at the print atelier La Taille-Douce, and held an “open studio” at the Cité on July 20.
The AFM-PARP is open to all Filipino visual artists : painters, sculptors, multi-media artists, and photographers. One residency is offered annually, to take place in 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 a free French language course at AFM.
The AFM-PARP 2011 application form/brochure is available at Alliance Française de Manille, 209 Nicanor Garcia St., Bel-Air II, Makati City.
