The Arts Council of Mongolia (ACM) and the Foundation for Sustainable Develop­ ment in Mountain Regions (FDDM) have announced the fourth SMArt (Sustainable Mountain Art) artist-in-residence program targeting professional photographers and media artists in 2020. ACM is receiving applications from photographers and video artists with the deadline for applications being the 15th of February. The program was created to strengthen understanding of global issues in mountain regions among decision makers and promote intercultural exchange and dialogue between artists and audiences around the challenges of mountain regions. A selection jury will consist of delegates from FDDM, SMArt, Ecole de design et haute école d’art du Valais (édhéa), Association riverbero (host residence) and ACM. To increase the insight of decision- makers and communities to the challenges faced by mountain regions through artworks, particularly photography and video, the SMArt program was initiated. The project has chosen four themes: climate change and natural risk disaster – water resources, migration, and agriculture – bio-diversity – food security; as a focus for attention this year. During the art residency artists will create a work that reflects how they perceive and understand the challenges faced by their host region. The artists’ work will be exhibited in Switzerland and there will be many opportunities to meet with local decision-makers, artists and the population. And, on returning to their own countries the artists’ work and experience will be promoted in partnership with local cultural organisations. The residency will be from Mid-June to Mid-September 2020 in Poschiavo, the main village of the valley with the artist living in individual accommodation organized by riverbero, a cultural association from the Valposchiavo. Further information: www. Mongolia’s 2018 candidate was Tamir Bayarsaikhan who completed his artist-in- residence in Canton Valais, an alpine region of Switzerland, from April to July. Tamir is a talented Mongolian photographer and graphic designer whose diverse and powerful work touches on clear links between nature and people. Tamir presented his exhibition in both Switzerland and Mongolia. Valposchiavo is the destination for the 2020 artist-in-residence program and is an agricultural valley region in Switzerland that embraces all climate and vegetation zones fromglaciersoftheBerninaRangetoorchards and palm trees located at the valley’s mouth in Campocologno. The valley is hemmed in by 3,000 meter peaks on either side and due to this setting agricultural pursuits include a broad range of raw material from milk and meat, fruit and vegetables to vineyards. Valposchiavo has 87 farms cultivating 1,700 ha of agricultural land. However, the farms are mainly small family businesses with many (95%) having made the change to producing organic products. To guarantee the valley’s first-grade products are found on the menus of local restaurants the project “100% Valposchiavo” was established. This has led to the changes in local production methods through innovation creating a healthy economic sector and has played an important role in the local tourism industry. For further information about the project: “100% Valposchiavo” experience/100-valposchiavo/the-project Further information about Valposchiavo: At the crossroads of culture and sustai­ nable development SMArt was launched in 2014 by the Foundation for the Sustainable Development of Mountain Regions (FDDM) in close cooperation with the Swiss Agency for Cooperation and Development (DDC) and the Culture Service of Canton Valais.
