I've been away since November of last year; the holidays, travel to meet my new niece and nephew, and unexpected but wonderful news to start the New Year kept me very busy. But now I'm back, and I'm making it a resolution to write more often again.
One of those good news I received at the beginning of the year, was an invitation to attend the Artist-in-Residency program at the prestigious Vermont Studio Center next month. One of the largest international artist’s residencies in the United States.
The Studio Center comprise of 50 resident artists and writers that I will be a part of. Established visiting artists and writers will come during my stay there and speak about their work in slideshows in the evening, they will also visit the resident artists’ studios to offer critical feedback on their work.
It is an amazing opportunity to be able to spend a month-long time-away for research, reflection, and production, that will for sure benefit my professional artist career. An intensive month to explore new ideas in my artistic practice and to create a new body of work surrounded by a creative and supportive atmosphere. But I need your help in making this opportunity a reality.
For this, I've been working for the past two weeks in building up a crowdfunding campaign in Indiegogo to help me raise the funds I need to take advantage of this opportunity.
