Open Call POLIN Museum / programme of artistic residencies (Warsaw, Poland)

POLIN Museum invites artists who would like to, during a three-week residency in Warsaw, carry out projects connected with Jewish heritage and multiculturalism to submit their applications.

The "Open Museum - Education in Action" programme, started at the beginning of 2014, allows Polish and foreign artists to prepare projects that relate to, history, and starting a dialogue with it. Artists also organise educational workshops for youth and adults and, employing active educational methods, involve the people of Warsaw in their efforts.

The results of all the projects organised in Warsaw will be displayed as part of an exhibition summing up the current residency programme which will be opened on 25 February 2016. The exhibition will be discussing contemporary Jewish identity, contemporary Jewish communities in Poland, and the Jewish minority. We will talk about memory, including places of memory, ways of commemoration, social memory, and personal memory.

Recruitment for the last two residencies as part of the programme ends on 15 October 2015. Residencies will take place on two dates:

  • 7 - 27 January 2016
  • 29 February - 20 March 2016

The Museum offers: refund of travel costs, accommodation, half board, workshop materials and an artist’s fee, as well as help and support from the project team.

Deadline: 15 October
