Rockefeller Foundation Accepting Applications for Bellagio
        Center Creative Arts Residencies

Deadline: February 11, 2009

The Rockefeller Foundation ( ) Bellagio
Center creative arts residencies are designed to give composers,
novelists, playwrights, poets, video/filmmakers, and visual
artists time for disciplined work, individual reflection, and
collegial engagement free of the usual interruptions of their
professional and personal life.

Located on a peninsula adjacent to Lake Como, two hours north of
Milan, Italy, the Bellagio Center typically offers one-month
stays for no more than three to five creative artists at a time.
The foundation seeks applicants from any country in the world who
are able to demonstrate a history of significant achievement in
their respective artistic disciplines. Individuals from developing
countries and young artists with significant accomplishments —
exhibitions, publications, performances — are particularly
encouraged to apply. Decisions are based on the quality of the
proposed project, the ability of the applicant to articulate the
project’s purpose and goals, the professional qualifications and
achievements of the applicant, and the suitability and value of
the center for the proposed activity. Spouses/life partners may
accompany the resident, or may apply for a concurrent residency.
The center also offers collaborative residencies for two to four
persons working on the same project.

Residencies are typically four weeks long; however, shorter peri-
ods may be available. Room and board are provided without charge
to all residents and their spouses/partners. Residents and
spouses/partners must pay for their own airfare and local trans-
portation to/from Bellagio. Assistance with round-trip economy
airfare between the home country and Milan is available on a
financial needs basis to qualifying residents and their spouses/
partners from developing countries.

The February 11, 2009, deadline is for a possible residency occur-
ring between mid-August through November 26, 2009.
