Berlin Residency Info Session & Workshop

Interested in learning more about the Blue Star Contemporary Berlin Residency Program? Is it the next step in your artistic career?

Join us for a Berlin Info Session and Workshop, on First Friday, January 4th, 2019 starting at 5 pm. This is your chance to learn more about the application process, the requirements and expectations of artists, and opportunities both while in residence and upon your return to San Antonio. Get all of your questions answered before you submit your application.

The BSC Berlin Residency Open Call is live from January 1 — February 15, 2019, and you can find more information along with the Application Guideline Packet here.

Program alumni, Joey Fauerso and Leigh Anne Lester, will answer questions and discuss things like:

  • •Their approach to application processes
  • •How/where they hear about opportunities
  • •How long applications take
  • •Did they think they’d get it
  • •Show you a few of their successful applications
  • •And give their insight on being awarding opportunities, including the BSC Berlin Residency.

In addition, BSC’s Curator and Exhibitions Manager, Jacqueline Saragoza McGilvray, will talk about the jurying process, what BSC looks for in an application, and why BSC chooses to engage a panel of jurors for this opportunity. She will also discuss how the application process works, examples of standout applications, and common pitfalls form an organizational perspective.

Together the group will workshop writing a letter of intent for the Berlin Residency and participants will give one another feedback.

And of course, you can ask lots and lots of questions. Light snacks and refreshment provided.
