AIR Wro

Description 

The Artist In Residence Programme AIR Wro is a legacy programme of the European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016. Its main purpose is to support and promote activities of individuals representing various fields of art and culture or active in border areas between them, interested in cooperating with representatives of local communities and environments as well as eager to build international cultural relations.

In 2017 AIR Wro dedicates its projects to contemporary culture and urban identity – the urbanity defined as a set of characteristics, issues and tasks related to particular city, but also a city conceived as common space – jointly stated, produced and built. Common for specific group of inhabitants, but also for inhabitants of different cities concerning specific topics and phenomena. The concept of city is intended to form the starting point for activities related to research and analysis of modern cities, diagnosis and reflection on their condition and the level of public and civic awareness of their inhabitants, their involvement and participation in urban projects and initiatives, a sense of co-responsibility for a shared space – understood as public sphere and, at the same time, community of inhabitants.

AIR Wro invites for residencies, among others, artists, curators, researchers, journalists, activists and animators interested in artistic, cultural and social projects, which are inspired by urban and grassroots movements or urban activism, are dedicated to current urban issues and problems, for instance public space, urban greenery, environmental protection and ecology, are related to civic and cultural education, social issues and cultural policy, and which serve the idea of mediation and searching for good practices and solutions for modern cities.
