Warehouse421 > Homebound Residency Programme (Remote)
Warehouse421’s new Homebound Residency Programme aims to support creative practitioners in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia region to produce new work and explore digital forms of community engagement in their practices while socially isolating. The residency programme will offer residents a production budget that can go up to AED 30,000 (~7300 EUR) that will go towards equipment and materials for the realisation of their projects in their own spaces.
The Residency Programme supports Warehouse421’s mission to contribute to the regional cultural ecosystem by encouraging deeper engagement of local and regional talents with digital communities. The programme aims to support creative practices interested in exploring digital space in their practice, and to expand the ways artists and institutions use this space to engage with their public.
Current events have served to highlight the untapped potential of expanding forms of community engagement, and the residency will challenge creative practitioners to think deeply about connection, communication, and multidimensional interaction with their communities, and the various ways we reside digitally. Residents will identify mentors that can help guide them through the residency process, and Warehouse421 will provide material and logistical support to support new bodies of work looking out beyond the current pandemic, culminating in a digital exposition of process and work.
The Warehouse421 Homebound Residency Program is open to all creative practitioners, including but not limited to visual arts and curation, design and technology, literary arts, music, culinary arts, theatre and performance, in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia region.
Warehouse421 will award up to 6 residencies, which will run for 3 months, from September to December 2020.
Deadline: 18 July 2020
