AIR NETWORK: NOVEMBER 2023
Updated: 2 days ago
WATERSHED WINTER RESIDENCIES
This is a fantastic opportunity to develop an idea at the intersection of art and technology, that responds to the theme of 'Other Minds'. A chance to share ideas, meet incredible people, experiment, make and think.
There are two residencies available. Each comes with a structured programme, work space at the Pervasive Media Studio, a network of peers, plus financial, technical and critical support. This is a remarkable opportunity for creative practitioners to have time, resources and freedom to get an idea off the ground.
Our theme for this year is "Other Minds". We're looking for work that explores intelligences different to our own: animals, machines, or something stranger. We want to ask questions like these: What does it mean to live in a world filled with different forms of thought? How can we create an idea of personhood for computer networks, beehives, or forests, while still maintaining our essential humanity? And how can we use ideas like "artificial intelligence" to expand our understanding of the world, rather than creating new ways to exploit it?
AWARD: 2,750 £ + 500 £ for materials.
Mas Baudran is a place, in the heart of the Camargue, part of an approach to seeking autonomy and exemplarity, in interactions with its ecosystem, developing a market garden, sensory garden, ceramic workshop and spaces for debate and meetings.
We wish to contribute to the construction of new imaginations that are both possible and desirable, by combining artistic creation, legal doctrine and scientific work, associative activism, academic rigor and freedom of creation.
AWARD: 5,000 Є
CENTER FOR BOOK - BOOK ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE & WORKSPACE ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE

ARKANSAS TECH UNIVERSITY - RESIDENCY
The Artist-in-Residency (AIR) program at Arkansas Tech University is an immersive experience within an art and educational community. AIR is a program intended to advance the careers of practicing artists, present the residents as role models for the ATU community, and to strengthen the public’s awareness toward the significance of making art and its effect on the surrounding community. The residency will take place over a five month period, giving the artist time and space to focus on the creative process. The AIR program for 2024 will select an artist who works two or three-dimensionally to create an outdoor artwork that will enhance the ATU campus. The AIR program is supported by a generous grant from the Windgate Charitable Foundation.

PROSPER - RESIDENCY
LAKE ORCHID, MACEDONIA
PROSPER is an international project co-funded by the Creative Europe program of the
EU, led by 5 partner organizations (LOOP (Greece), Eho animato (Serbia), Oyoun
(Germany), Peripetija and LDA Struga (North Macedonia), which is exploring the theme
of environmentally challenged regions of the Balkans by inviting artists, designers,
researchers, cultural workers and thinkers of all disciplines to participate in an
residency. The periphery selected for this open call is Lake Ohrid in North Macedonia.
It is a UNESCO site which has been suffering ecologically due to unsustainable tourism
practices, and it represents a common type of environmental challenge that we see
globally and more frequently than ever before.
Participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in creative work that is
informed by local communities that live and work in this periphery. This exchange
takes place in the form of a 30 day residency with a group of eight international
participants, and ends with a collectively curated one-day festival where the
participants showcase the work they developed during the residency. The key
objective is to inspire participants to find connections between their practice, the
fragile environment they are inhabiting, and the people who live there, while ensuring
respect for the core values: sustainability, inclusivity, and decolonial thinking.
The Art Explora Foundation, in collaboration with the Cité Internationale des Arts, welcomes around twenty residents, artists and researchers from all over the world each year . The program gives these artists and researchers the opportunity to develop research and creation work in the heart of Paris , in connection with the French artistic and professional scene.
The program is open to applicants of all nationalities, ages and eligible artistic disciplines. Eligible artists are those who can demonstrate professional activity for at least five years and who have presented their work and research on an international scale.
In addition to evaluating the candidate's professional background, the members of the committee pay particular attention to the quality of the project, its link with the theme of the residency ( art and sciences, contemporary social, political and ecological issues) and the importance of its location in France for the progress of its research.
AWARD: 1,000 € /month + 3,000 € budget

The program provides partial support for incurred costs related to travel and lodging expenses related to the visit.
The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Archives, consisting of Robert Rauschenberg’s personal papers and the records from his Florida and New York studios, is the most comprehensive body of information on the artist’s life and career. The Archives Research Residency supports continued scholarly and investigative use of these materials by supporting individuals that demonstrate a compelling need to use the archives and addressing financial barriers that may prohibit onsite access to the archives. In addition, the application is open to all individuals, thereby encouraging research opportunities that move beyond traditional art historical discourse.

LYCÉE JEAN MONNET YZEURE ARTIST RESIDENCY
Since 2016, the Lycee has hosted an artist in residence thanks to funding from the DRAC Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. Following a call for applications published in particular on the CNAP ( National Center for Plastic Arts ) website, an artist (visual artist, photographer, designer, etc.) is chosen jointly by the high school and the DRAC.
This creative residency also includes a mediation component with pupils and students of the high school, and allows the artist, at the end of the 8 weeks of presence in the establishment, to present the results of his research on the EROA (Meeting space with the work of art).
FACTEUR DE CIEL
The association organizes writing, research and creation residencies by call for applications or by spontaneous application.
These residencies are open to film artists, filmmakers, authors, choreographers, directors, philosophers, researchers, publishers national and international. The idea is above all to offer time and space for research, experimentation and thought.
Our support for artists is intended to be committed over time, more than a succession of residencies, we want this place to be a ground for meetings, for long-term dialogue, necessary to continue thinking and practicing our arts.
The durations vary, determined by artistic needs and economic conditions; we study the different possibilities with each person.
There is no imposed theme, the resident will be able to tell us their needs (connection with people on site, search for a specific location, urban intervention, collaboration, etc.)
ATELIER DE L’ACHILLE
Combining support for artistic creation, contemporary artists, and the promotion of heritage, such is the ambition of the municipality of Saint-Malo. The opening in summer 2021 of the Achille artistic residency, located in the exceptional and inspiring setting of the La Briantais estate, bears witness to this.
Nestled on the edge of this 27 hectare park which houses a castle dating from the end of the 19th century, recently classified as a Historic Monument, and which dominates the La Rance estuary with a breathtaking view of the sea, this old farmhouse is a privileged place that we wish to share with emerging artists.
It is a question of encouraging their work and creating a sensitive link with the public, through workshops outside the walls and an outing of residency in an exhibition space in Saint-Malo integrated into the cultural programming of the City. The Achille residence embodies the desire to bring together nature and culture in the heart of a city lung.
