SIM Alum notice

SIM alum, Kevin Clancy has been developing an artistic project called "Portable Utopia", including a residency in Johannesburg, South Africa. He brought the latest incarnation entitled "WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR DREAMS" to Boston recently.
As Kevin describes it: “I want to get people to think about how we are confined in our ideologies and different possibilities of how the world could be … brainstorming and thinking about possible futures and getting people to share their dreams with me, whether that’s the small things they want to do in life or the bigger social, political ideas that they have.” Kevin, now a resident of Pittsburg, was invited to do a residency with the experimental art group, Mobius. Details of the project are described in a write up in the Dig.

Winners of 2013 Saint Botolph Club Foundation Emerging Artist Awards
more about the award -

Saint Botolph Club Foundation Emerging Artist Awards

To encourage artists at an earlier stage in their careers, the Foundation also funds an Emerging Artists program. Since its inception,this program has provided support to more than 450 emerging artists across New England. The Foundation seeks to identify individuals to whom it can “make a difference” through the combination of financial support, recognition, and endorsement.

The Foundation supports well-defined endeavors such as finishing a commissioned score, preparing works for an exhibition, traveling for arts research, or completing a piece of writing.

The Emerging Artists Selection Process:
Nominations are solicited in January from recognized professionals in the cultural community and St. Botolph Club Members, as well as from former Emerging Artists recipients in the fields of music, literature, and the visual arts. A letter of recommendation by the nominator is submitted on behalf of the candidate, who provides a writing sample, visual images, or performance recordings, along with a letter of intent and need. These materials are reviewed by three juries comprised of Board and Club members. From about one-hundred and fifty (150) candidates, approximately fifteen (15) are selected annually for individual awards of $2,500. These awards are announced in June.
