Hydra PACE: Open Call

The DobraVaga Gallery, Ramallah Municipality/Mamarat AIR program and KAIR Košice Artist in Residence invite visual or interdisciplinary artists, living and working in Slovenia, Palestine, or Slovakia, to take part in a two-month residency in selected cities (Ljubljana, Ramallah, Košice).

Link to the Open call 

Open call deadline: 31st January, 2021

The Hydra PACE residence program anticipates six concurrent residencies, and the connection between the artists in residence and partners implies collaboration in three stages: collaboration with the partner’s organization prior to arrival, a two-month residence in the selected city (throughout June and July 2021), and a final meeting of all participating artists in residence and partners’ representatives in Ramallah. 

The partners would like to ask artists to analyze the present situation and think about the future, addressing one (or more) of the following issues through visual arts or their overlap with scientific disciplines, sound art, new media, architecture, literature, animation, or performance: co-living, coworking, community, coexistence, copresence, connection, consensus, consonance, cooperation, co-experience, Covid-19.

Each residency includes a separate apartment and artist studio free of charge, an artist fee of 1,000 €, per diems, material costs (limited), travel costs (limited), accommodation and travel costs for the final meeting in Ramallah.
