Alliance Française Launches AFM-PARP 2011

Alliance Française de Manille is pleased to announce the launch of its 2011 artist residency grants program (AFM-PARP). Now on its second year, the AFM-PARP offers Filipino artists the possibility of a structured visit to France for a period of two to three months. The residency will be hosted by a French non-profit cultural organization, artist residence, or artist-run initiative. It is conceived as a professional opportunity rather than a project-based grant. Its aim is enrich the experience of Filipino artists by affording them the opportunity for contact with the contemporary art scene in France.

The recipient of the first AFM-PARP grant was printmaker Ma. Victoria “Ambie” Abaño, who is now on her second month of residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. She is enrolled at the print atelier La Taille-Douce, and will hold an “open studio” at the Cité on July 20.

The AFM-PARP is open to all Filipino visual artists: painters, sculptors, multi-media artists, and photographers. One residency is offered annually, to take place in the spring or autumn months. The AFM-PARP provides a financial grant to cover costs of travel and living expenses. The grantee may also avail of a free French language course at AFM.

The AFM-PARP 2011 application period is July-October 2011, and the deadline for submission of applications is 31 October 2011.

The AFM-PARP 2011 application form/brochure is available at Alliance Française de Manille, 209 Nicanor Garcia St., Bel-Air II, Makati City. It will also be available at the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), and can be downloaded from the AFM website at
