Kosice 2013 - European Capital of Culture

Call for Applications

Deadline: 31st of December 2011

In the frame of European Capital of Culture the NGO Košice 2013 is running an international Artist-in-Residence-program for emerging artists from all over the world and out of all artistic disciplines and expressions. Residents are given the possibility to work in the inspiring environment of Košice's singular cultural surrounding to realize art projects, collaborate with the agile local art scene and present themselves to the local and national public.

The residency program has three goals:
1. Support the creative energy of every invited artist and give her/him the chance to work in a new and special environment to find (new) artistic ways to express.
2. Stimulate the art scene in Košice, in the region and in whole Slovakia. Support the dialogue as well as the confrontation of the residency artists with local artists and the wide public.
3. Create/strengthen a beneficial environment for the development of innovative and international contemporary art projects with international and local participants.

The team will introduce every artist in the social environment of the city and the region and help them to build up networks and collaborations with local artists. Public events like artist talks, projections, workshops, open studios, will be organised to give every artist the chance to introduce and present themselves to a wide public. A final project/exhibition will show the working process during the stay of each artist.

Košice 2013 provides:

  • Three month residency in Kosice, Eastern Slovakia between May and December 2012
  • Free accommodation near the city center (full furnished with kitchen, no room service)
  • Honorarium, travelling and material costs

What we expect
Emerging artists, open for collaborations with local artists, are invited to apply.
