Call for Applications from Academic Writers, Artists, and Literary Artists: The Bellagio Center Resident Fellows Program
The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Centerís mission is to promote innovation, creativity, and impact-oriented solutions to critical global problems. Residencies and conferences at the Center, located in northern Italy, support work in the Foundationís key issue areas: global health; climate and the environment; urbanization; social and economic security; and basic survival safeguards (i.e., food, water, and housing). In addition, the Center welcomes proposals from all fields that advance the Foundationsí long-standing mission to promote the well-being of humanity.
The Residency Program allows for focused work, uninterrupted by the professional and personal demands of daily life. In addition to time for dedicated work on individual projects and for reflection during the day, building new connections and collegial interaction with other residents is a defining characteristic of the Bellagio experience. During a residency, people of diverse expertise and backgrounds come together in a thought-provoking, creative, collegial environment that helps create change and have impact on a wide range of world issues. Residents include an international group of academics, writers, artists, scientists, journalists, non-governmental organization practitioners, researchers, and policymakers. Meals and informal presentations of residents' work afford an opportunity for dynamic discussion and engagement with each other. The combination of quiet time for individual, focused work and connections with such a diverse community is unparalleled.
Academic Writing as well as Arts & Literary Arts residencies typically last four weeks, and spouses/life partners may accompany residents. Practitioner residencies can last between two to four weeks. Joint applications from co-authors are also welcome.
Applications for Academic Writing as well as Arts & Literary Arts residencies are due by November 30, 2012 for a residency period beginning August 19, 2013 through November 29, 2013. Applications from practitioners and for conferences are accepted on a rolling basis.
