Program Description:

The aim of this call is to offer a residency to contribute to the support of research processes within the artistic context; understanding artistic research as another phase within the process of artistic creation.

The residency will be developed during 2018, and it consists of two parts; the first is the research, which will take place during the twelve weeks of residency, while the second part is a programme of activities or open sessions generated from the research process, and that will be developed throughout 2018. The residency and the programme of activities may be interspersed with each other if the resident may find it convenient for the development of the project.

The public programme will be included in Tabakalera’s programme of activities, and it may involve meetings between researchers, professionals and other agents, symposiums, conferences, talks, screenings, presentations or invitations for other agents to get involved with the residency. The proposed dates and activities will be agreed with Tabakalera and members of the jury.

This call is open to artists or cultural agents living in Basque Autonomous Community, as well as national and international. One project will be selected from all the proposals received.
