Supporting Young Creative People

Antonio Gala’s Foundation launches its annual grant edition (Source)

(Antonio Gala is a Spanish writer.)

“Live for working rather than working for a living” is the motto of the annual grant edition of Antonio Gala’s Foundation for young talents

18 scholarships have been announced for the present edition. They will include accommodation and meals for creators aged between eighteen and twenty-five. Within the foundation, young people work without teachers. They receive visits from established artists who share their experiences. The aim is to enrich one another with the others disciplines. This creative coexistence is what  Antonio Gala defined as “crossed-fertilization”: Young people gather at the end of the day to share progress, concerns, experiences and enrich the writer with the musician, the musician with the sculptor, the painter with the sculptor and so on.

The ultimate goal is to provide these young talents -each in their respective discipline: fiction, poetry, theater, music composition, painting, sculpture …-, with the development of a creative project during the academic year 2016-2017. As a novelty, the Foundation has announced an extraordinary grant for researching on a specific aspect of Antonio Gala work and personality.
The scholarship includes a stay at the headquarters of the Foundation from October 2016 until June 2017, in Cordoba, Spain. There will be holidays during two weeks at Christmas period (December-January) and Easter. Accommodation, meals, as well as the material and the necessary spaces for residents to develop their creative work, will be provided by the organizers.
Applicants from Spain may send their documentation in print -except that which by its nature requires other support-, to the address: “Call for applicants from Antonio Gala Foundation for Young Creators 2016-2017” , C / Ambrosio Morales, No. 20. 14003 Córdoba.
Those from another countries  can be made in the same way, or by submitting all documentation in PDF to “convocatoria@fundacionantoniogala.org” email.
The deadline for submitting applications wil be the 31st March 2016.
The final list of selected candidates will be posted on the web page www.fundacionantoniogala.org throughout the month of June 2016.
Further information, any questions or concerns will be attended at (+34) 957 487 395 or email info@fundacionantoniogala.org
