SOMA Two-Year Academic Programme Open Call
SOMA, a non-profit organization funded by artists in Mexico City, offers an Academic Programme (PES) aimed at young artists interested in interacting with fellows to discuss and reflect in a horizontal way about various aspects of art production and to participate in seminars, workshops and lectures that the programme offers. The PES offers an intensive education centred on individual production and criticism. SOMA searches for artists committed to their endeavour, that demonstrate an interest in discussion and participation and playing a part in a community of cross-learning. The programme conducted in Spanish has a duration of two years and is divided into six quarters. Activities are divided into the following lines of work:
- Education: seminars, workshops, and courses;
- Production: editorial projects, final exhibition and project rooms;
- Individual backing: tutoring for two years, quarterly mentoring and individual interviews every two weeks;
- Public programme: Miércoles de SOMA.
As part of SOMA's philosophy, all accepted artists will receive a grant that covers 90% of the total cost of the programme. The age range for applicants is from 23 to 33 years of age. Foreign applicants may apply. The programme begins on 3 September 2018.
The call is open from 26 February to 6 May 2018.
