Image Threads is excited to offer a free online mentorship program. For this initiative, the collective members as well as other participating photographers and bookmakers will be making themselves available to those looking for periodic dialogue and critique on an ongoing body of photographic work intended for book form. Mentoring is free of charge and will take place virtually on a bi-weekly basis, over the course of 2-3 months (a more precise schedule will be determined by each mentor and participant.) As the program is being conducted on a volunteer basis, each mentor will be selecting a limited number of projects—those we feel are best-suited to the format and to our mentors’ respective areas of expertise. In the spirit of Image Threads’ mission, preference will be given to individuals without access to comparable educational opportunities. For an up to date list of currently available mentors, please visit imagethreads.org

ABOUT ZARATAN AIR | Driven by the desire to intensify and exchange knowledge with artists through creative and productive practices, in 2015 Zaratan announced the promotion of an international art residency. Our goal is to mix experienced with emerging artists and give them the possibility to bring their work in an experimental context through exchange and collaboration within the local network. The artists-in-residence at Zaratan are given the opportunity to develop a project over a fixed period of time, and to reflect and consolidate their artistic practice in the specific context of Lisbon. We provide private accommodation, 24/7 private working studio, technical assistance, promotion and communication support, open public presentation of the residency process. Although labs and technique-specific facilities are not available, we will do our best to fulfill your needs, providing logistical support for producing work and events within our network of partners and collaborators. All artists are encouraged and welcome to share the outcome of their residency through talks, performance, open studios or other format o publi presentations.
