The Unifiedfield is an independent non-profit artist-run organization with no external funding. To cover the residency expenses they charge a residency fee. The Unifiedfield can assist the artists with letters of invitation to enable to raise funds to cover the residency as well as the artist’s production costs, living and travel expenses, etc. [Some of the participating artists-in-residence have been supported by their national funding bodies: Singapore National Arts Council, Singapore International Foundation, Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan, Danish Arts Foundation, Stroom Den Haag, Mondriaan Fund, and The Japan Foundation]. The amount will vary depending on the project and travel costs of the nomadic residency. The Unifiedfield will design an itinerary and budget/week/ person including: accommodation, meals, transport within The Philippines, interpreter, guide, assistance in the pre-production and realization of the projects, documentation and organization of several events for diffusion of the projects. The residency fees will also contribute to the sustainability and continuation of The Unifiedfield Artist-in-Residence Program in the future since they are planning to grant two local artists a year.

The Unifiedfield is an independent art space and nomadic artist-run organization focusing on the experimental aspects of sound, video and performance art.
Since its inception in 2009, some of the primary goals of The Unifiedfield have been the production and diffusion of new interdisciplinary and non-commercial forms of art, together with the creation of artistic exchanges between Asia and Europe. In this time, it has organized monthly events, video art screenings and experimental music concerts at both its Yogyakarta and Granada spaces; produced site-specific works and held clandestine interventions in public places; initiated two Artist-In-Residence programmes; conducted workshops on performance and sound art; curated and exhibited at art institutions such as Nikolaj Kunsthallen (Copenhagen), the Museum Of Contemporary Art (Taipei), The Substation (Singapore), and the Singapore Art Museum; amongst others.
In 2013 The Unifiedfield initiated its Nomadic Artist-in-Residence Program in The Philippines; this residency is working in partnership with the Balud Art Network.
Access to The Unifiedfield’s Nomadic Artist-In-Residence program in The Philippines is open to all artists, filmmakers, musicians, writers and curators without restriction, but priority is given to artists working on environmental and relational, site-specific projects on the experimental and interdisciplinary fringes.
The Unifiedfield will select the most interesting proposals, in terms of social and artistic interest, from the total number of applications. For artists who apply, this is a production-based residency where The Unifiedfield will assist the participants in the development of a new project or the continuation of an existing one in various regions of The Philippines. Please check on our website some of the locations and the communities we have engaged with. They are currently expanding their network and other emplacements can be proposed, depending on the nature of the selected projects.
This is a production-based residency where The Unifiedfield will assist the participants in the development of a new project or the continuation of an existing one. Genuinely attentive to the artists’ needs, The Unifiedfield remains flexible, and if the occasion arises where a larger space is required for a certain event, The Unifiedfield can collaborate locally and internationally with other art spaces and institutions. Eventually, if circumstances allow and under the discretion of The Unifiedfield, we can organize several other presentations for further promotion of the artists.
