ANNOUNCEMENT: ARTISTIC RESIDENCIES 2019 at Azkuna Zentroa
Azkuna Zentroa – Alhóndiga Bilbao sponsors different initiatives to support research, creation and production around live and exhibition arts, with the aim of fostering the production of art and bringing it closer to the public, either through the work itself or the creative process.
The Artist Residency Programme offers creators the physical conditions and space necessary to develop projects linked to the Centre’s programming and lines of action. At the same time, it connects the creative fabric of proximity with interantional cultural environments in searh of lasting and reciprocal exchanges, relationships and collaborations.
This mission seeks to uncover the correlation between centres such as Estudio Carlos Garaikoa in Cuba and the Dansateliers Contemporary Dance Centre in Rotterdam. This is a network that fosters the exchange of artistic process and the creation of ongoing professional relations.
The call for entries for two of the Centre’s Artists in Residence programmes will open in January 2019: Contemporary dance and artistic practices.
Also in January, consonni, the resident group at Azkuna Zentroa, will announce a call to participate in the making of a radio programme on critical culture as part of the ‘consonni radio with Az’ project.
Also this year, there will be a new residency centred around Hotsetan, the experimental music and sound art programme.
