KRA – KRAVÍN RURAL ARTS residency (Czech Republic)
KRA stands for the future in ecology, art and media. To build this, KRA is inviting (not only) artists from various disciplines, working with various tools and media (low-power electronics, sound and music, performances, texts of all kinds presumably experimental, architecture, plants, images, mud grass and other objects, …) from micro to macro and beyond. The organisers expect activities, which don’t (have to) lead to a finished installation, an exhibition, or any artwork, but that are related to a new kind of presence in the environment. Something avoiding intrusiveness but unseen before altogether…
There are no regular deadlines. The length of the residencies will be scheduled individually, based on the planned activities. We accept longer (up to 3 months) and shorter (from 1 week) residencies, also residencies consisting of multiple shorter visits. An informal visit preceding the residency application is strongly recommended.
Applicants are encouraged to look for the financing resources themselves. The residency space is provided to a limited amount of applicants every year. Additional support depends on grants and subsidies we manage to receive.
Residencies by artists from V4 countries (Poland, Hungary, Slovakia) can be supported by grants from the International Visegrad Fund, with the coming deadline September 10, 2015. The organisers can provide assistance for completing the applications.
