Revealing Residencies: How to Talk about the Invisible Work

Hosted by NAVE (CL)

The nature of artistic residencies is fundamentally different from productions and performances: they are rarely meant to directly generate a public outcome but rather provide a safe space for artists to experiment. In many ways, residencies are simultaneously an essential component of artistic research and a difficult object to communicate about.

It is worth asking ourselves how to involve local audiences in this somehow invisible work, how to justify residencies towards governmental and private funding bodies, and how to inscribe them in the artists’ ecosystem with a proper role and identity.

NAVE (Santiago / CL) will host this OpenScape gathering on 14 March 2023 at 14:30 CET and showcase strategic conversations between nine representative institutions organising residencies and funding bodies and is open to the arts practitioner community as a whole.

This online gathering will be held in English and is free of charge.
