The Art Prospect Residency program provides opportunities for artists and curators to conduct research, create new work, collaborate with the local arts community, and create special projects in partnership with local arts organizations in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. Each two-six week residency is individually designed to enable visiting artists and curators to learn about the local arts community, develop their own work, and share information about their work and culture with local audiences.
The Residency program is a key component of Art Prospect, a new initiative to build a regional network to share information, resources, and practices about the arts and social change and to facilitate international collaboration.
We invite applications from artists and curators based in eligible countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. Preference is given to artists and curators whose practices demonstrate an interest in engaging the community and addressing social issues. However, artists working in other fields are also welcome to apply. Each residency is specially designed by local cultural organizations in the ten participating countries. All residency costs, including international travel, visa support (if needed), accommodation, studio, production, and per diem are covered by CEC ArtsLink.
Please note that we are no longer accepting applications for 2017. For more information, contact Lizaveta Matveeva, Project Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
