The concept of the project is inspired from the Arab tradition of Jiwar which literal translation is Neighbourhood. Jiwar refers to the art of establishing a creative and a sustainable relationship between neighbours. Beyond this immediate significance Jiwar conveys a philosophy of life that aims at neighbouring values and bridging experiences.
Priority is given to artistic and social projects that deal with intercultural and interdisciplinary issues. Jiwar is a creative residency focused on the themes of urban space, and so has a preference for artists and researchers investigating the many issues arising from life in the city and the relationships that occur there. The Residency activities are open to the neighborhood. Artists are invited to share some of their work with Gràcia inhabitants through open air meetings, readings and workshops in the garden.
Jiwar offers different residency formats:
Individual residence: Jiwar hosts all over the year residents depending on availabilities. The candidates are selected on the base of their sumitted projects and CV. Jiwar supports the residents in carrying out their work and in organizing public events and activities.
Project Team Residence: Jiwar hosts groups of residents working on the same project. Priority is given to multicultural and multidisciplinary teams. Jiwar supports the team and organizes its public activity or event either within our facilities (garden or indoor studio) or within the facilities of a relevant partner in the city (theatre, cultural centre, radio studio, library, etc.)
Jiwar's own projects: have a look on Jiwar's website for projects that Jiwar develops directly and for which there might be specific open calls for residency.
