Summer Residency Program in New York; Applications for Turkish Artists close on April 1, 2015

Turkish artists take note: applications are now being accepted for the Summer Residency Program at the School of Visual Arts (, which takes place between June 1 and July 2, 2015 in New York.

Sponsored by the Moon and Stars Project of the American Turkish Society (which also supports young artists through its excellent Young Photographers Award) and SVA, this internationally renowned program offers artists the opportunity to work in a private studio, receive critique from faculty, and attend weekly lectures given by guest artists, critics and gallery directors. Best of all, it offers artists exposure to the New York art world: the program culminates in an open studio exhibition, which enables the artist to present his/her work to the public.

It’s important to note that the scholarship is open only to active professional artists with an established studio presence residing in Turkey, but who are not represented by a gallery. As such, current undergraduate students are ineligible to apply, but applications from graduate students are welcome. Qualified applicants must have basic fluency in English sufficient for engaging in meaningful dialogue with other participants.

The winning participant’s travel, accommodation, transportation, materials and expenses will all be covered. Please click the link for the application form to download (in both Turkish and English).
