Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee is calling for applications from those who have a visual art, performance art or research-based artistic practice for the five-week online Radio Residencies, to take place between April–June 2024 and September–December 2024.

The objective of this programme is to support research in artistic processes, contribute to the local and international community around sound and radio work, and to build long-lasting relationships with artists for further collaboration on the platform.

The thematic focus is for applications that ‘make sound do difficult, real-world work’ by interrogating the relation of sound-based art works to other mediums, and to conceptual and performative practices, as well as by engaging the sonic in critical, discursive projects.

This call welcomes individual artists, duos or collectives whose work is connected to music, sound, the audible, or radio. The residencies are meant to offer space and time for researching and developing this dimension of their practice.

Applicants do not have to be highly experienced working with sound, although advanced practitioners are welcome to apply. The practice of applicants should relate to the sonic, in conceptual and/or material ways, but explicitly does not need to fall under the category of ‘sound art’.

They will select four residents. The call is open to Netherlands-based as well as international practitioners. This is an online residency, but artists in close proximity to Amsterdam are welcome for in-person meetings.

Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee offers:

  • a fee of 1,000 EUR
  • a production budget of 200 EUR – this can be used for materials, equipment rental, fee for a collaborator, rent of a studio or anything else that is necessary
  • an introductory session to the tools and resources available within Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee
  • 3–4 (online) studio visits (conversations) with members of the team for curatorial and technical feedback
  • the platform and online broadcast facilities to present work.
