Shatana International Artist Workshop is inviting applications for its two-week workshop residency program from the 7th until the 21st of July 2007.
The workshop will take place in the historic village of Shatana. The residencies and work spaces are set in historic stone houses and churches situated between olive and oak trees. Shatana has a population of approximately 150. Shatana is about 70 kilometers away from the capital Amman.
The workshop is process oriented, supports experimentation in all media and is targeted at emerging to mid career artists in all fields; encouraging contemporary work in painting, drawing, sculpture (or 2D and 3D work), installation, video, performance and sound.
This workshop is part of the Triangle Arts Network of workshops currently active in 20 countries. The Triangle Arts Trust, established in 1982 by Robert Loder and Anthony Caro, is organised as a network of artist-led workshops that encourages experimentation, and cross-media exchange. The workshop will bring together 20-25 international artists practicing in a wide variety of media, to work among each other, and share ideas and methods for a period of two weeks in the serene village mountain setting of Shatana. At the end of the two weeks, the workshop will host an Open Day which will invite in the local public, artists, and critics to celebrate the developments and results of the workshop.
The workshop will provide the selected artist with full lodging and food, working space, local transportation and a small material stipend. Travel expenses to Jordan may also be awarded.
Time based work, such as performance, video, or sound can be sent by DVD by mail to the following address:
P.O. Box 317
