ENOA > Open Call for tailor-made residencies for the new generation of creators & opera makers
The enoa network was born from the wish of a number of operatic institutions – opera academies, festivals, foundations and producers – to work more closely together to support the professional integration of the most talented young artists and to support the development of their artistic ambitions.
The enoa network offer an opportunity for an artist to be part of an artistic institution for a varying length of time and develop an ongoing and fruitful relationship with it.
This special environment means the artist is immersed in an institution, discovering how it works and its different activities, taking inspiration from its artistic programme and taking part in outreach projects for the benefit of the public.
It is also a great chance for the artist to meet and talk with the institution’s singers, musicians and creators and to learn from them. The young artists benefit from a period spent in a creative environment. Over the course of the residency, one mentor from the institution will lead the artist through regular exchanges and meeting.
In return, the artist can contribute his/her outlook, imagination or creativity to the host institution.
The artist will also be expected to produce a paper out of his/her experience at the end of the Residency.
• Applications are mainly open for creators and conductors highly interested in the development of new operatic and theatre musical forms, and in the role of the creation for the renewal of the opera going audience
• The Residency should involve contacts with the local audience
• A grant between 1000€ and 3000€ will be given to the selected artists (depending on the length, the shape and the place of the residency, covering basically travels and accommodation on the basis of 1000€/month)
• Language: English
Deadline: 30 January 2018
