Arc Artist Residency (Switzerland) > Walk and Talk residency

A special characteristic of Arc is the wonderful landscape that surrounds it. As walking can be conducive to the discursive process, we want to regularly invite two persons for shorter residencies, to take long walks in the beautiful green surroundings together. Walk & Talk residencies are aimed at artists and other cultural practitioners who wish to discuss a certain question with an expert from another field. The idea is to give people time to enter into a longer dialogue in another rhythm and collaborative mode. Deadline for application: no later than 2 months before the starting date of your residency.
