The Emily Harvey Foundation offers residencies in Venice, Italy, for innovative artists, writers, musicians, videographers, dancers and other creative thinkers in mid to late career. They may come from anywhere in the world.
The Foundation provides live-work space in Venice, inclusive of utilities and Wi-Fi access to the internet. All spaces have telephones for local calls only, full kitchens, and facilities for washing clothes. The Foundation provides neither stipends, nor meals, nor travel expenses. Residents must procure their own working materials, and will be expected while in Venice to be financially self-sufficient. Travel to other parts of Italy or Europe during the period of a residency should be limited, and residents are asked at the conclusion of their residency to provide a report on what they have done or feel themselves to have accomplished while in Venice.
Applications should be sent by e-mail to Henry Martin, firstname.lastname@example.org, and can be written in English, Italian, German, French or Spanish. Attachments should include the applicant’s CV, a one-page, double-spaced description (250 words) of the work the applicant would intend to do while in Venice, and some measure of documentation of the applicant’s former work, in jpg, pdf, or WORD format. The total size of applications should not exceed 5 Mb. Residencies are generally from one to three months in length, depending on the scope of the applicant’s project, and applicants are requested to specify the months of the year in which they would prefer to reside in Venice, as well as the months of the year in which they could not reside in Venice. Receipt of applications will be acknowledged within thirty days. Residents will be selected by the Foundation's Application Committee, and successful applicants will be notified at least nine months before the date of their residency. Applications are currently being accepted for 2015. Applications for 2015 must be submitted by November 15, 2013.
|Emily Kreis Harvey (1941-2004) was a New York gallerist known for her support of the international
avant-garde community. She divided her time between New York and Venice,
Italy, where she made her home. She loved Venice, and wanted others
to share in her experience of this ancient and unique Italian city.
She loved art and artists, and creative people of all types, and particularly
wanted to support mature artists with her residencies, since there
were so few facilities specifically for them. She died in Venice in
