March 29: Working on the margins, artist-in-residence programs today
In Brabant and elsewhere, artist-in-residence organizations often move in and outside of institutional frameworks in order to facilitate space for the arts on their own terms. What is the urgency to do so and what are the opportunities that unfold from taking this position, in collaboration with institutions and local municipalities?
These and other questions will be addressed from a local and international perspective on March 29 at bkkc in Tilburg during a program of presentations, panel discussions and work sessions concerning the practice of small, context based artist-in-residence programs.
The conference marks the next step in an ongoing critical investigation by AiR Platform NL to evaluate together with AiR organizers and different partners pressing questions concerning the ideas and practice of artist-in-residence programs, bringing their position in the arts and in society to the fore.
