The Aurora Artist Residency Program and Space (AARPS) runs four artist residency programs, namely The Aurora Artist Residency Program, The Aurora Local Residency Program, The Aurora Artist On-Site Residency Program and the Aurora Community Collaboration Residency Program:
THE AURORA ARTIST RESIDENCY PROGRAM
The Aurora Artist Residency Program is a flexible paying residency program that accepts proposals from interested artists, curators, cultural researchers, and art workers from all over the globe.
Interested applicants may apply all year-round for the residency’s short-term (week-long), medium-term (month-long), and long-term (three months) programs. During this time, successful applicants will be provided accommodation, work area, two meals a day, a ground staff to assist the artist resident of their daily needs, and a local coordinator/guide to help the resident expedite his/her proposed project.
The AARPS accepts proposals from various fields of diverse subjects and creative methods of implementing his/her project. However, the AARPS follows a strict protocol if the proposed project involves community collaboration, especially with our Dumagat indigenous peoples community partners, and the prospective artist residents are expected to follow those community ethics protocols. In this instance, AARPS will provide a community orientation and community ethics workshop prior to the commencement of the resident’s proposed project.
Please email us at email@example.com for inquiries regarding the community ethics protocol or for the artist residency rates.
THE AURORA LOCAL RESIDENCY PROGRAM
One of AARPS’ objects is to foster a holistic relationship amongst members of the arts community, including independent art sponsors and patrons. The Aurora Local Residency Program is a short-term and fully-subsidised residency open to local and independent artists who are willing to work or collaborate directly or through AARPS with our independent patrons. Our independent patrons come from a diverse background and perceived to be hands-on in learning about the journey of their contribution. The call for application for this particular residency will be determined by our independent patrons with the guidance of AARPS, and the terms of the residency will be determined by the patron, AARPS, and the artist resident, collectively.
THE AURORA ARTIST-ON-SITE RESIDENCY PROGRAM
The Aurora Artist-On-Site Residency Program is a partially subsidised residency program in conjunction with on-going AARPS cultural projects.
This residency program is by-invitation only.
THE AURORA COMMUNITY COLLABORATION RESIDENCY PROGRAM
The Aurora Community Collaboration Residency Program is a partially subsidised residency program focused on developing culture-based, creative-led, practice-led, and practice-based creative collaborations with our partner communities for cultural empowerment and environmental sustainability. For this residency program, AARPS works in close partnership with our local community partners in Dingalan to develop community-led and community-based cultural projects. Moreover, AARPS implements a strict community ethics protocol for projects that involve community collaborations.
Interested parties can submit proposals all year-round or send us inquiries regarding this residency program through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
