Artscape Gibraltar Point announces a call for artists for the Film For Artists Residency. Program dates: 19 – 26 June 2017. Facilitators: Zoë Heyn-Jones, Eva Kolcze, and Terra Jean Long.
Deadline: 1 May 2017
Price: $750 + HST
The Film For Artists residency, appropriate for absolute beginners and small-gauge film enthusiasts alike, will focus on artisanal film techniques while engaging with the specific geography of the Toronto Islands.

Embrace experimentation, chance, and accident in your process. Think of the filmmaking process as a cycle not separate from the natural, ecological cycles that encompass lives and practices. An alternative to traditional filmmaking instruction, forego the rules in favour of integrating cycles of experimentation, growth, and decay.
The Film for Artists residency will host free public screenings, talks, and tours in order to foster interest in the Toronto Islands as a creative site. Encourage participants and public audiences to consider Toronto’s unique history, landscape, and topography.
Artscape Gibraltar Point is excited to announce that 2017’s residency will explore the Toronto Islands through the lens of plant life, animated by the work of several local artists who use plants in their practices in innovative and dynamic ways. Explore organic film processing, using plants and household materials to develop film, alongside the traditional chemistry used in hand-processing.
Artscape Gibraltar Point will teach:
- Basic camera theory and how to use the Super 8mm and Bolex 16mm cameras
- How to hand process black and white 16mm and Super 8mm film
- Decay techniques using bleach, soil, oil, and salt
- Painting, drawing, and scratching on film
Film For Artists Residency will include:
- A bedroom and shared studio spaces
- Hands-on instruction supplemented by walking tours, talks, film screenings, and engagement with relevant literature
- Black and white film, darkroom chemistry, and supplies
- Super 8 and Bolex cameras. Supplies are limited and residents are encouraged to bring your own
Participants are encouraged to share their own films, or films that inspire them, in several informal screenings.

Due to its geographical and historical characteristics, Fukuoka City has served as a gateway to continental Asian culture since ancient times.

Fukuoka Asian Art Museum opened in 1999 as a part of the city’s progressive strategy for interaction with different Asian cultures.
The Fukuoka Asian Art Museum is the only museum in the world that systematically collects and exhibits Asian modern and contemporary art. The works in the collection of the museum are not imitation of Western art or repetitions of traditional works. Instead, they seek to overcome the existing framework of art, being made by artists living in contemporary Asia. These artists attempt to acutely express their message in and about this changing world of Asia. FAAM’s exhibitions of Asian modern and contemporary art are rich in depth and quality and wide in scope. They present the originality and charm of Asian art in a way that cannot be experienced in any other museum in the world.
The museum has also been functioning as a place for people to become familiar with Asian arts and culture through the artistic creations and researches of the invitees of the Residence Program. It is an interactive museum – the place of meeting, understanding each other, and creating together.

Flux Factory is currently looking for cultural producers of all kinds to join the Flux community for 3, 6, 9, or 12 month Flux Factory residencies starting in the Summer or Fall of 2017.
Deadline: 1 Feb 2017
Flux Factory cultivates a spirit of openness and generosity through a unique collaborative and participatory approach to realizing its residency and public programs. Each resident is responsible for their own funding, though Flux Factory can help with this process.
Flux Factory Residencies
Flux Factory residencies benefit from an immersive environment that encourages experimentation and peer to peer resource sharing. Residents work together to shape and realize Flux’s expansive programming. They propose and lead exhibitions and educational events. Flux Factory nurtures individual practices by offering professional development opportunities including one-on-one studio visits, group field trips, and monthly salons. Our labyrinthine building includes 16 studios, a gallery, silkscreen studio, wood shop, co-working office, communal kitchen, library, and rooftop garden.
About Flux Factory
Flux Factory is a 21 year old non-profit arts organization, artist collective, and international residency program located in Long Island City, Queens, NYC. It is located one subway stop away from Manhattan. It is committed to building a sustainable community for diverse cultural producers including visual artists, builders, curators, community organizers, chefs, activists, musicians, and writers.
In August 1993, seven artists rented part of the second floor of a former spice factory next to the East River in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The group came together as an informal artist collective to create an alternative platform to the commercial gallery scene.
Flux Factory was born out of the needs of emerging artists who come to New York City to take part in the cultural nexus. By 1998, Flux membership had doubled and the living room, with a new stage, evolved into a destination for art events and performances of all kinds. Supper parties and performances occur each Thursday, a tradition which continues with our monthly Flux Thursdays salon and potluck. Flux became an official 501 (c)(3) nonprofit in 1999.
In 2009, Flux Factory moved to its current location, an 8,000 square feet, three story, building in Long Island City. The new location provided an impetus to professionalize the residency program. Residents are now selected based on merits and their commitment to collectivism. Today Flux Factory hosts around 40 artists in residence per year. Flux commissions new work through quarterly exhibitions and residents produce public events at a prolific pace.
