Big Sky Mind Artists’ Projects Foundation, an independent artist-run organization based in Manila, Philippines, offers studio residencies to young visual artists at the 18th Avenue Artists Compound in Cubao, Quezon City.

Located in a warehouse complex, Big Sky Mind offers young artists space to create and develop their work amidst an environment of community, camaraderie and professional support. Its Residency Program grants one-year studio residencies to young Filipino visual artists and short-term residencies to foreign visiting artists.

The Compound has three studios for local artists and one studio for foreign artists. Technical and support facilities include a library of books, magazines, catalogues, portfolios and other reference material on contemporary art, a computer lab with cable internet access, scanner, printer, fax, CD burner and video editing equipment.

Each quarter, Big Sky Mind hosts exhibitions by the resident artists, providing them with a platform to present their work to a wider public. Talks and
workshops are also held in order to broaden public awareness on contemporary art and practice.

The 2004 Residency period is from July 1, 2004 ­ June 30, 2005. Artists who wish to apply may submit their cv, portfolios, and other supporting documents from 15 January ­ 15 March 2004. Artists also need to submit a clear, concise proposal of works to be developed during the residency. Qualified applicants will be notified by April 2004.
