DURATION | 4 weeks
GRANT | Once a year Zaratan offers a 4 weeks residency grant, which covers the studio and accommodation fees for one artist selected through the applications process. THE OPEN CALL IS NOW OPEN FROM 15th OCTOBER TO 15th NOVEMBER, 2020.
ABOUT ZARATAN AIR | Driven by the desire to intensify and exchange knowledge with artists through creative and productive practices, in 2015 Zaratan announced the promotion of an international art residency. Our goal is to mix experienced artists with emerging artists and give them the possibility to bring their work in an experimental context through exchange and collaboration within the local network. The artists-in-residence at Zaratan are given the opportunity to develop a project over a fixed period of time, and to reflect and consolidate their artistic practice in the specific context of Lisbon.
We provide private accommodation, 24/7 private working studios, technical assistance, promotion and communication support, open public presentation of the residency process. Although labs and technique-specific facilities are not available, we will do our best to fulfill the artist’s needs, providing logistical support for producing work and events within our network of partners and collaborators. All artists are encouraged and welcome to share the outcome of their residency through talks, performance, open studios or other format of public presentations.
