AiR Platform Brabant

On May 24, AiR platform Brabant presented their new website, as part of a program of talks and worksessions at Lochal in Tilburg.

The program, organized in collaboration with Kunstloc, included presentations by Wouter Koelman - about the artist-in-residence policy of the Mondriaan Fund, the recently published book Contemporary Artist Residencies, Reclaiming Time and Space by Pascal Gielen, dr. culture sociology at the Antwerp Research Institute for the Arts (ARIA), and artist-in-residence Marleen Kappe spoke about her experience at Park Tilburg.

During the last years there have been a series of initiatives of research and meetings concerning the position and practice of artist-in-residence programs in Brabant. Movements that since 2018, after the conference Working on the margins (29 maart 2018), resulted in the formation of a network of artist-in-residence programs, working together to strengthen their position from a local and international scope.
