Open calls for residency programmes

Artist-in-residencies exist as open and reflective spaces for research and experimenting in the arts for production and presentation. These residencies help build extensive networks of relations: from artists, curators, and experts, to peers, local audiences, and partners (such as exhibition spaces, art academies, policymakers, funders and sponsors). The following open calls invite guests to work from within these local contexts, often applying cross-disciplinary approaches, and consequently exploring its existing structures and relations.
