PAST – ArteEast Residencies for artists based in the Middle East and North Africa.

ArteEast Residencies are open to artists based in the Middle East and North Africa, including the Arab region and Turkey. In an effort to stay true to our mission of facilitating access to career development for artists from the MENA region, preference is given to worthy applicants who otherwise do not have ready access or opportunities to residencies and travel to the United States.

All ArteEast residencies provide for living space, round trip travel from the resident’s home country and a stipend. Residencies with our partners are concluded with an ArteEast CONNECT extension in New York City, which will consist of a curated schedule of meetings with art professionals (curators, gallerists, programmers, etc.), as well as presentation and community engagement opportunities in concert with ArteEast’s various partners throughout New York City.

In 2016, RU is pleased to partner with ArteEast to offer two distinct residency opportunities:

Decision Announced: April 15, 2016

Description: This residency combines a 6-week residency at Residency Unlimited in Brooklyn, NY with an 8-week residency immediately afterward at Sculpture Space in Utica, NY.
