Aloardi is an association, but also an art collective runned by volunteers since 1998, in the context of the general Peruvian population and daily life realities. The residency runs since 2004 on informal level, however Aloardi decided to formalize the residency and ask for reasonable financial contributions from the residents to make the residency possible. Aloardi is not supported by any funding, governmental body or sponsor.
The artist/resident can apply for funding in their country of residence or finance the residency by own means. The resident sponsors Aloardi with a weekly fee that covers housing costs, studio use, general assistance and wifi. An hour rate can be taken in account for extensive guidance, organizing workshops and presentations, production involvement and mentoring.
Artists should submit:
Founded in Peru in 1998, Aloardi started as one of the first labels and independent platforms in South and Central America diffusing and producing experimental music, media art, sound related interventions and alternative acoustic research. They support and generate collaborations between people with self-managed associations and institutions on local, national and international level. Aloardi organizes events and transdisciplinary exhibitions, initiate actions and share knowledge; the association is engaged in approaches towards (non)technological resources, sustainable work and exchange with local communities. Based in Lima, their space serves since 2004 as venue for meetings, workshops, research laboratories, a residency program, audiovisual productions, internet radio broadcasts and a mediatheque.
