LUBNA. Open Call for Women Artist/Curator/Activist

"LUBNA" Open Call for women. 




Research residencies at /Plata are approached with ideas and perspectives that include mutual support. /Plata is a growing organism -under construction- where great value is placed within the ecosystems of art, aiming to adapt these systems to both family and professional realities conducive to the different personalities of those who work within them. We believe that it is necessary for a residency program to be flexible, finding correct timing and space, taking care of both the people and the processes in which we will commonly go deeper. 


The LUBNA open call for research grants for women seeks artists, curators, activists and in general any researcher who dedicates her life to practices that delve into the present context from a critical and creative point of view. 




Our purpose is to expose Cordoba -and its surrounding context- to new perspectives of study. In order to do so a selected jury will choose a motivated researcher to work with our team. Beginning with rewriting local history, sociology, gender studies and social justice, the state of agriculture, urbanism, the collapse of the tourist industry, the cultural situation and the arts or economic degradation- to name just a few fields of research. Beyond an academic vision, we are interested in new perspectives and the transmission of messages which question the official narratives. 


The call also aims to directly promote the visibility of women in the arts, especially those who, after building an interesting curriculum, find themselves in an unfairly weak professional position compared to other disciplines and professional workers.


Formalization of the residency


The work created during the residency does not necessarily have to be translated into an exhibition. /Plata does request a gesture for the artist at the conclusion of the residency in either the form of a conference, workshop, publication or any other format suitable to establish certain conclusions which concentrate on the research conducted. 



Our first criteria for selection is the depth and coherence of your proposal. In order for there to be progressive development within certain proposals, we are aware of the necessity for time flexibility. That said, we offer an indicative calendar that may be useful when writing your application. 

The scholarship will begin in the month of April 2021 and will formalize in autumn. During this period the grant recipient must spend at least one month in Cordoba (not necessarily continuous). Note: in the summer months the staff of /Plata may not be in Córdoba. 

Resources at your disposal

1. Workspace in /Plata with wifi connection and printer.

2. During the production phase (work that can start before your arrival) we offer you all of our support, passion and interest. Upon arrival we will introduce you to the context of Córdoba, facilitating possible resources (including people relevant to the research) tours, visits, outings and meals. We can also help you access and participate in events organized by other institutions/associations, as well as access to archives, etc.  Our team will be here for you providing warmth throughout the entire process, always attentive to the diversity and sensitivity of everyone involved. 

3. Technical assistance in the formalization of your project.

4. Dissemination of the project through our web and social media platforms.

4. Management of your accommodation. 


-1500 euro 

-Accommodation in a single room. (30 days maximum)

-Mothers of underage children and/or women with dependents: 200 euro per child and/or dependent (up to a maximum of 500 euro). 

*Attention: the residency does not include medical insurance. It is compulsory for each resident to personally arrange medical insurance in the country of origin valid for the period of residence in Cordoba.

Application process

The application should be sent in a single pdf file (max.10Mb) to platalugar [op] gmail [punt] com with the subject "Lubna Open Call for research grants for women¨ including the following documentation:

Personal data (Full name, date and place of birth, ID or passport number, email contact, telephone contact).

Motivation Letter (not a biography but a brief speech concerning your interests in coming to Córdoba and working with us) Max. 2000 characters.

Curriculum Vitae 

Theoretical project + idea of formalization. Max 3000 characters. 

Graphic Dossier (Optional).

URL for videos (Optional).

Personal web URL (Optional).

If you are a mother, you must submit a photocopy of birth certificates.  

If you have dependents, you must present a certificate which can prove so.


Selection process and criteria

The selection will be made by a jury of professionals selected by /Plata under the following criteria:

First it is important to remember that we are an independent entity and our passionate nature makes us very sensitive to relate to people who propose innovative projects both in form and content. 

Second, we will investigate the interest and feasibility of the proposal.

Finally, we will evaluate your previous work. 

Application deadline

The deadline for submitting the application is March 8-31. 

Final selection results will be communicated in the first week of April.
