LUCITOPIA RESIDENCY PROGRAM · IN THE COUNTRYSIDE: The ecological and environmental problems caused by global climate change, as well as unbalanced relationships in the development of cities, villages and the natural environment have been causes of concern and reflection for those in various fields. Within this current climate the Lucitopia Residency Program · In the Countryside invites interdisciplinary and cross-media practitioners, researchers and experts, from the perspective of their own research areas, to participate in discussions concerning village life and issues relating to the natural environment. Such discussions will include issues of living and working in the countryside, the possibilities for the revival of villages, and opportunities for sharing in the city context. Each residency period is for a duration of two months.
