Chokran Bzef ... for your interest in a residency at Green Olive Arts in Tetouan. Below this letter is the application form you requested. We accept applications year round. Following receipt of your completed application, a 50 Dirham non-refundable application fee and any related documents, your application will be reviewed by the Selection Panel. The review process takes less than 2 weeks.
Residencies last from 1-6 weeks, during our three seasons, with each artist determining the length of time appropriate to the work he or she wants to accomplish. If you are accepted to Green Olive Arts, we can help arrange your housing or you can arrange your own. Artists who have specific facilities needs should contact Green Olive Arts to determine if our studios will accommodate their work.
The residency fee is based on the length of your stay. Because we hold a high value of community and collaboration, the majority of our studios are set up as shared spaces, where 2-3 artists are at work. This will likely be an international mix of artists, encouraging creative influence across cultures. Because Green Olive Arts is also committed to promoting and facilitating the Moroccan arts movement, we offer special pricing for our Moroccan artists:
2018-2019 Shared Studio Prices:
1 -3 weeks - 600 DH per week
4-6 weeks - 500 DH per week
The residency fee only includes studio space and the services of Green Olive Arts (wifi, easels, access to the studio computer, basic tools, etc.). Beyond that, the artist is responsible for the costs of art supplies, meals, transportation and housing. We have negotiated special rates with a number of housing options here in town (see our housing options web-page) and we can make those arrangements for our guests. Housing fees may vary depending on the time of year (As you know, summer is peak tourist season in Tetouan).
Please be aware that once you have been accepted, a 200 DH deposit is required within 15 days after 'acceptance' to secure your studio space.
We are excited that you are interested in an art residency at Green Olive Arts, and we are eager to get to know you in the process. You may complete and submit the application below, so that our Selection Panel can make a decision about your proposed goals and your fit with our schedule and program.
Our Selection process typically includes a brief interview (in person, by phone or by Skype) before a final decision is made. Applicants will be contacted first by email to arrange the best time for this. We look forward to learning more about you!
