A novelist friend of mine (Sarah Butler, whose debut novel Ten Things I've Learnt About Love has been bought by Picador) is, as you’d expect, immersed in the world of literature and art. Through Sarah, I found out about a great opportunity for a Brazilian artist to take residency in the UK as part of a collaboration between Gasworks and São Paulo art gallery and foundation Fundação Iberê Camargo. Gasworks is a contemporary art organisation based in South London, housing twelve artists' studios and offering a programme of exhibitions and events, artists’ residencies, international fellowships and educational projects. Interested? Here's a link to the application process. Hurry - the deadline is July 27 - and good luck!
