LAST CALL: c.r.e.t.a. rome international residency program Fall 2014/Spring & Summer 2015

The non-profit organization  ‘c.r.e.t.a. rome’ offers an international self-funded residency program in Rome, Italy. The Italian word for clay seemed perfect to express our commitment to creating an international reference point for ceramics and the arts in the eternal city of Rome. Moreover, taken as an acronym, it spells out our main activities: ceramics, residencies, exhibitions, teaching and the arts.  We are located in the mid 16th-century Palazzo Delfini in the historical center of Rome, just blocks from the Capitoline Hill on one side and the Pantheon on the other.

We offer artist residencies for ceramicists and visual artists for periods of 6 weeks or 3 months (4 weeks in summer). For Fall 2014/Spring 2015, the residency periods are:

The residency includes a semi-private equipped studio, shared housing (private room) in the historical center of Rome, and technical assistance in procuring materials, firings, etc., advice on museums, galleries and sites in Rome and beyond. Artists have the opportunity to focus on their art, whether it be creating a new body of work, expanding a well-established oeuvre or allowing themselves to draw inspiration from their surroundings and the centuries of culture that define the eternal city. In addition, they will have access to the wealth of galleries and exhibitions in Rome and beyond. Artists are encouraged to submit a proposal for a final exhibition to display the work created during the residency period.

We also offer a residency in the countryside near Bracciano, with private accommodation in a 1-bedroom house with a garden and a private studio. This option is particularly attractive for collaborative projects and/or ceramic artists who work with reduction firing.

A selection committee composed of artists, art critics and historians carefully evaluates applicants based on their artistic experience, merit and project proposal. For more info and costs, contact Lori-Ann Touchette, cretarome@gmail.com or see our web-site: www.cretarome.com.
