Artistic Residence Program Barcelona Residency of Art
I am 50 on the 17th November. I had a near death accident in 2007, almost went brain damaged and blind on right side of my eye.. but lucky and was blessed with new life. Divorced due to scars and was separated from my daughter now 18 who resides in UK with her dad and stepmum. Moving to Europe will bring me closer to my daughter.
Art has been my healing therapy. Recently in April, was diagnosed with Autoimmune Chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis. I wish to go back to school and my only dream left to be fulfilled is school which I gave up year's ago due to family responsibility, when dad left us and married another. I had to work since the age of 17 to support my family. Now with mum passing away from cancer.. I have no more obligations but to myself and I wish to live in Europe now start a new chapter in my life
The Artistic Residence Program at The Barcelona Academy of Art offers its own and external students the possibility of starting their professionalization process in a studio / workshop where they will receive the necessary knowledge that will guarantee their entry into the artistic / cultural market.
There are also other weekend courses available which I would love to pursue The course fee is about 7k euros n 3k to fund my stay for 9 months... With the hope I can apply for a part time job or obtain a work study visa
The directed and tutored classes will last 9 months (academic period: from October to June). However, artists may extend this period for an additional 2 months in summer (July and September)
I need to raise 10k Euro's (11k USD) or (50k MYR)
I hope money can be raised to Pursue a new beginning. I currently am a struggling artist and live on disabled allowance which hardly covers my monthly expenses.
Thank you for this amazing platform
