Scholarship available for inaugural Scape 2010 Critical Writing Workshop
Closing date for applications: July 9, 2010

CAPE 2010 Christchurch Biennial of art in public space is providing scholarships for two emerging writers, interested in contemporary art writing to participate in a one day writing workshop alongside other established, early career contemporary art writers. The workshop will provide an opportunity for each participant to develop his/her writing practice, and gain further insight into the field of contemporary art writing.

The workshop will be facilitated by Vanessa Joan Mueller, Director of Düsseldorf Kunstverein and well-known curator of many contemporary art events and exhibitions, on Thursday 23 September 2010. The workshop will be an intensive day long event and only serious applicants should apply. Scholarship recipients will be expected to attend all events associated with the opening weekend of SCAPE, 24-26 September. Scholarships will cover workshop related costs and the cost of travel and accommodation where recipients live outside of Christchurch.

Scholarships are available to New Zealand residents only.

Writers interested in applying are asked to submit two published (relevant) pieces of writing, of no more than 2,000 words, together with a CV and covering letter of no more than 100 words, outlining what they hope to gain from participating in the workshop.
