Deadline April 30 May 26, 2014 (extended)

The Summer Sessions are short-term residencies for young artists organized by a network of cultural organizations all over the world.

The Summer Sessions offer a highly productive atmosphere with production support and expert feedback to jumpstart your professional art practice. The result is a pressure cooker in which you develop a project, from concept to presentable work, ready to show.

Are you an ambitious, early career artist, full of ideas and ready to realize your project this summer? Then apply by submitting a video, in which you briefly explain your project, the support you need and why you should be a part of the Summer Sessions.
