(Eds. Note: We’ve just received this announcement from IAF Working Group member Ellen Denham, who is working with the Indy Convergence, the annual 10-day “make-a-wish foundation for artists.” You can also find out more about the Indy Convergence by reading the March 11, 2011 IAF interview with founder Caitlin Swihart — we are very excited about this event and look forward to what this year’s Convergence will hold!)
Applications for the 2012 Indy Convergence are now open.
Deadline to apply with funding is January 15, 2012.
The Indy Convergence seeks out professional artists with a passion for exploration and a unique talent or approach that will contribute to the ensemble. Participants also have the opportunity to focus on their own genre specific works and are required to teach a workshop that is open and free to the Indianapolis community. The goal of the Indy Convergence is for working artists to gather, collaborate, learn, share and teach.
The 2012 Indy Convergence will be May 7 -18.
Over two weeks each artist:
- Participates in one collaborative “Umbrella Project”
- Works on one or more personal “Side Projects”
- Teaches at least one “Workshop” in their field of expertise.
- The Indy Convergence concludes with a culminating presentation where work is shared in an open lab environment. All workshops and events are open to the public and free of charge.
- At the core of the Indy Convergence we are “artists at work” — at work in our community and at work with one another.
*Join us in Indiana this May to share space with other dedicated artists for 2 weeks of open space. *
