ISLAND Announces Second Round of 2010/ 2011 Hill House Residency

Emerging Musicians & Writers: Applications Due September 15

Since it's opening May 2010, The Hill House Residency has provided eight artists the time and space to dedicate to their craft. The Hill House works to support two fields: emerging songwriters and writers at all stages of their career. Emerging musician Marcus Sigh reflected on the Hill House Residency as if he and partner Melissa Sigh were painters who had canvases and brushes at home, but were missing red and yellow paint (space and time). "ISLAND and the Hill House gave us these, our red and our yellow."

European cost-cutters target culture

Posted on Art4Development, originally from The Times - The Australian


ARMIN Rohde is breathless. Not from his fencing lesson -- preparation for a stage performance of Cyrano de Bergerac -- but out of anger.

"What is happening to our cultural landscape?" fumes the 55-year-old, one of Germany's best-known character actors.

"Europe was different . . . exactly because we had theatres in every town, the best art collections, a sense of history and performance. And now what? We're shutting it all down to save the equivalent of a kid's pocket money!"
