International residencies

International residencies

 

We admire the impact art has on society. To unite and support professionals communicating it to the general public we have created an International Residencies Programme.

The programme is a platform for cultural dialogue between countries, it connects art- managers, curators, and researchers from Ukrainian and the EU. During the residency, you will get to know the workers of the hosting institution and the local art scene. We believe the experience to lead to a long-lasting co-operation.

A residency enables you to work on cultural projects, and not having to worry about money, living and working space. The hosting art-platform will help with all the day to day matters, while we provide the funds. You will have access to the institution’s infrastructure, be it a library, an exhibition area, a space for public events, and studios. The colleagues from the institution will tell you a little bit more about their projects, introduce you to the local art community and help you reimagine your project in a global context.

We open calls for international residencies twice a year — in the spring and autumn. Follow this page or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know when the call opens.

It is for valuable projects

We value exciting and well-thought-out projects, exploring memory, inclusivity, being on the move, and other topics. The residency does not require you to finish the project, but you will have to present the idea to the local art community. The format of the presentation is entirely up to you.

It is for art-managers and researchers from Ukraine and the EU

We welcome curators, art-managers, and researchers from Ukraine and the EU. The form of art you are exploring is not an issue for us; it can be anything you like.

It is for new acquaintances

You will get to know the managers of the hosting art-platform, local colleagues, and artists. There will be a professional and cultural exchange and opportunities for planning collaborative projects.

It is for having your everyday issues covered

We want you to feel comfortable throughout the residency. You hosting institution will always be there to introduce you to colleagues, provide a space for an event, and help with any other issue.

This is for you!

We connect people and opportunities

We support professional and creative exchange between Ukrainians and their EU colleagues. This encompasses 20+ programme lines managed by us and a constantly increasing database of the best opportunities offered by other European organizations. This is just the beginning: more opportunities, events and acquaintances are coming.

We are all over Ukraine

We are convinced that we should go where our support and information are needed the most: out in the regions. Organising Pop-Up Hubs, creative entrepreneurship in the regions is stimulated, whereas the Mobile Pavilion sets our concept on the move.
