Program Description:

Based on an examination of artisanal practices and new forms of food production, the foundation invites visual artists, designers and chefs to submit a project on the theme of deceleration in our overly consumerist world, that explores concepts for the collaborative economy (recycling, textiles, 3D creation, food...) and has a social impact.

The two laureates will receive a production grant of 10,000 euros depending on the project, workspace and residential accommodation at ThalieLab in Brussels.
Depending on the nature of the project, the final product will be presented either in the foundation’s exhibition space and/or a public space.

The aim of the residency is to offer a different approach to contemporary art creation, by taking the following criteria into account:
• Involving the community in the development of the artist’s project?
• The support of an institutional partner?
• Diversity in the type of end results generated (film, performance, visual or audio creation, publication, exhibition, workshop,...)

Visual artists, designers, chefs or curators of all nationalities who speak French and/or English. Minimum age: 30

• Artistic ambition
• Innovation
• Social impact
• Uniqueness
