Meet Factory’s Sustainable Studio Practice residency has been established as a safe space where you can develop a project focusing on the topic of sustainability within your artistic practice. It doesn’t have to be built around the production of art – quite the opposite: Meet Factory are looking for art thinking projects that provide a new approach to studio practice in times of climate crisis. You will be working in a temporary community which will include artists from around the world. What most interests the organisers is sustainability as a method, not as a subject. Their overall goal is to prepare a manual for sustainable studio practice which can be used in the future.
MeetFactory is a non-profit international centre for contemporary art. Their mission is to foster a dialogue between individual genres and make current developments on the art scene accessible to the general public. They support original projects in the fields of visual art, theatre, and music, as well as interdisciplinary and experimental platforms. They aim to create a space in which art is alive and artists are present, enhancing a direct exchange between international artists and visitors, as well as between different fields and generations.
What they provide:
- Accommodation in a shared apartment.
- Studio space.
- A fee of 500 EUR (gross) per month.
- Production budget up to 200 EUR.
- Travel reimbursement of up to 200 euros (only for land transportation – no air travel).
The residency is intended for artists living within a radius of 1000 km of Prague. Make sure you are able to spend at least 80% of your residency time in Prague. Possible dates: 1 April – 30 June 2021; 1 July – 30 September 2021; 1 October – 15 December 2021.
