Organised with Casa del Cinema di Trieste, Eterotopia, MeLa Media Lab, Gangart and Adriatico Book Club, this open call is for a one-month artistic research residency in Trieste, from 20 May – 21 June 2024, as part of the project POP Adriatico – Porto Osservatorio Partecipato.

Applications are open to all visual artists of any nationality, under 36 years of age. The aim of the residency is to offer the artist the space and context to develop a project. This could either be an already well developed idea or a concept starting from scratch. However, it must include the moving image as a means of expression. The project proposal should be in accordance with the themes of POP Adriatico, i.e. the complex dynamics between art, territorial regeneration and citizen participation — approached with a critical eye. Furthermore, through this residency initiative, the objective is to promote the production of works by young artists and to foster future collaborations, as well as to share insights upon the local artistic context and the processes of transformation taking place in the city of Trieste, particularly the Porto Vecchio area.

The residency will provide the selected artist with:

  • Free study-accommodation for the period of residence.
  • Travel reimbursement (up to a maximum of €350).
  • A total residence award of €1500 (gross).
  • Residency tutoring.
