Подробная информация об арт-резиденциях на русском здесь
Our art residencies scheme partners commercial artists from Eastern Europe, Russia, the Caucasus and Central Asia with NGOs and activists to create visual civic campaigns. The scheme is designed to help link some of the best creative professionals from the region with the civic sector and help them find a way to use their artistic skills for social projects.
How does it work?
Artists, animators and designers partner with an NGO from the region to design some campaign material or a new graphic product. Artists travel to the NGO to learn about their mission and work, before living and working in Prague for six weeks, staying with the Prague Civil Society Centre, to work on their projects. Typically, artists create short animated videos, cartoons or satirical leaflets exploring social issues, in collaboration with activists. The civic organisations can then use the visual materials to run a campaign or raise awareness about a particular topic in the home country or across the region.
We are looking for both artists and NGOs who would like to participate in our 2017 art residencies programmes.
