American Arts Incubator artist Felipe Castelblanco is currently in the Philippines, where he is working with artists in the Bacolod community to create a series of art projects focused on environmental health. He just finished leading a weeklong workshop, where participants shared their environmental concerns through stop-motion animations, and then designed 3D scaled models of a fictive city to propose sustainable urban planning. Next up, he will be building The People’s Island, a floating platform for collaborative performances and sculptural artworks that explores the bond of this community to the surrounding ocean.You can follow his project and read more about the four projects that were just selected to receive “small grant” awards here.

Last week, my blog post on Online Courses for Artists received more interest than I had expected, so I know that there is an interest with my readers and followers in online educational opportunities.

Application deadline: February 24th, 2013
Course fee: 90 €  Register Here.
During his four meetings Nicola Trezzi will present the art scene in four different countries: Indonesia, Sweden, Romania and Israel.  These presentations will try to embrace the entire artistic community, which means considering not only the work of the artists but also curators, gallery owners and collectors. Through this “enlarged” scope Trezzi will give a deeper idea of reality that is not only globalized but also ever more interconnected and de-centralized. At the same time each session will always underline the connections with this so-called “peripheral” countries and the mainstream. The mainstream will be mostly New York, where Trezzi is currently based.
