Fire Station invites 8th Artist in Residence applications
Applications are now open for the eighth edition of the Artist in Residence (AIR) Program at Fire Station, set to take place from September 15, 2023 to June 15, 2024. The program is open to artists aged 21 years old and above with Qatari IDs. The deadline for applications is April 15, 2023.
Fire Station’s Director, Khalifa Ahmed Al Obaidly, expressed his admiration for the program, which provides artists in Qatar an exceptional opportunity to develop their artistic practice. Selected artists will be given studio space at the Fire Station building and free access to its facilities. Additionally, they will have an opportunity to showcase their production in an exhibition.
Once the residency period is complete, artists from the AIR program will exhibit their artwork in a group exhibition in the Garage Gallery at Fire Station. The program’s success has led to the expansion of the AIR program to include a three-month residency at Cite internationale des arts in Paris, France, and Studio 209 in New York, as part of the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP).
