  1. Learning from each other – cross cultural respect
  2. Engaging approaches to learning  eg: Market of Great Ideas, Fashion Parade
  3. Building momentum for real cultural change (nudge theory)
  4. Capacity building – resourcing community leaders
  5. Recognising Geriactivism – the role of Elders in creating social change

job posting: Artist in Residence – University of Denver’s School of Art & Art History

For best Consideration: Apply by May 24th!

The University of Denver’s School of Art & Art History (SAAH) has offered instruction in Art and Art History since 1880 and is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. SAAH offers courses in Studio Art and Art History, and contributes to the Common Curriculum courses for the larger University. SAAH currently has twelve full time faculty, approximately ten adjunct faculty and serves an average of one hundred twenty undergraduate majors annually, in addition to approximately 18-20 graduate MA students in Art History. SAAH has an Art Foundations area that serves all students in SAAH, and which prepares Studio majors with the formative technical and conceptual skill necessary to advance to upper level courses. They are also popular with Art Minors and non-majors interested in Studio Art classes. SAAH has focused coursework from beginning to advanced levels in the areas of Ceramics, Drawing, Painting, Photography, Printmaking and Sculpture.

Position Summary

The School of Art and Art History at The University of Denver invites applications for a six-month Visiting Teaching/Artist in Residence in Ceramics, beginning January 2020, through June 2020. The ceramics studio is a spacious, state of the art facility and includes a full complement of ceramics tools and equipment. The ceramics studio has 3 electric kilns and 2 test kilns, a 24-cu ft gas Blaauw kiln, a soda and a raku kiln. In the ceramics area, there are glaze making facilities, wheels, 2 pug mills, a CNC machine and two ceramic 3d-printers (JK delta style). Additionally, there is access to plastic 3d-printers, a 4 x 8 CNC mill, laser cutter and wood shop at DUs Innovation Floor in the School of Engineering. The ceramics professor, Mia Mulvey, will be present but will be on sabbatical working on her own research. Materials and supplies (excluding firing fees) are the responsibility of the artist as well as housing in Denver. The expectation is that the bulk of the time is spent in residence at DU and travel is kept to a minimum.

Essential Functions

The Visiting Teaching/Artist in Residence will teach one Introductory Ceramics and one Special Topics Ceramics course as well as interface with SAAH students in the form of critiques and guest visits to classes. The remainder of the time will be spent working in the studio as a resident artist.
The Visiting Teaching/Artist in Residence will present their work in two public lectures (one at the beginning and one at the end of the residency) and there are opportunities for exhibition in SAAH’s Myhren Gallery. We also ask that one work be left at the end of the residency for our collection.

residency opportunity: Truro Center for the Arts

Application Deadline: November 15, 2019
Residency Timeframe: January 2 – March 31, 2019

Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill is currently offering a 3-month Ceramic Artist in Residence Program during the winter of 2019. Our goal is to give driven and self-directed artists the opportunity to enhance their personal, intellectual and creative growth by expanding their body of work or creating a specific project. Free from the distractions of everyday pressures, residents will be given time and space to concentrate on their work in the beautiful setting of Cape Cod and will be granted a shared exhibition in the Castle Hill gallery upon completion of their stay.

The residency runs from January 2 to March 31, 2019 and includes housing and studio space for $600/month. A total of two residents will be selected based on a review of application materials. Each resident will have a personal workspace in a shared studio and open access to the communal ceramics studio and kilns. Materials and firing fees are payable through Castle Hill at a discounted rate. Residents will share a furnished 2 bedroom apartment equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, living room, laundry, and internet access. It is highly recommended to have a car, as there are limited public transportation options and no grocery store within walking distance.

The ceramics facility at Castle Hill offers all standard studio equipment including wheels and a slab roller, as well as many kilns in excellent condition including several programmable electric kilns, a Bailey gas kiln, raku, salt, and a train style wood kiln. The studio barn is nestled in the gentle hills of Truro Massachusetts, just steps from the ocean. The Cape is rich with nature, art activities, beaches, and small-town charm.
