CEC ArtsLink’s Art Prospect Network Residency programme provides opportunities for artists and curators to conduct research, create new work, and collaborate with the local arts community in partnership with arts organisations in partner countries.
In 2023, the Art Prospect Network Residency programme will support residencies for eighteen artists and curators from USA and the Art Prospect Network countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan) focusing on exchange and collaboration in the field of socially engaged art and/or public art. Selected from an open call, the Art Prospect Network Residency Fellows will collaborate with host organisations from the Art Prospect Network countries.
Each Art Prospect Network partner offers a one-month residency to participate in a collaborative project, such as a public art festival or event, lead skill sharing programs, and/or conduct an independent project. Participants and host organisations work together to define the residency goals and structure based on their reciprocal interests, needs and strengths.
CEC ArtsLink provides international travel, visa support, and health insurance (if needed), accommodation, per diem, and a small production budget. Host organisations make all local arrangements and provide ongoing organisational support and translation as needed.
