Program Description:

The aim of this call is to offer the opportunity to an artist who lives in the Basque Autonomous Community to invite to an artist or cultural agent who lives outside the Basque Autonomous Community, to a residency for the development of an artistic project in collaboration.

The allocation of these residencies will be both for the development of projects and also to accommodate creative processes already in progress, in any format, regardless of the artistic discipline or the current phase of the project.

The residency, which will last between four and twelve weeks, will offer space, context and time for the carrying out of the artistic project.

From all the proposals received, one project will be selected. The residencies will take place from February to June; or from September to December 2018.
