Blue project Foundation
The Blueproject Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Barcelona whose main aim is to support and promote national and international artistic creation. This support is offered through a residency programme for exhibitions and performances that provides assistance for artists to promote their work that is both relevant to and a reflection of today's aesthetic, social and intellectual issues.
From the present open call, 3 projects will be selected with an exhibition as a final result (with a maximum of eight weeks) and 3 projects of performance (for at least one public presentation). Priority will be given to new and original projects.
Each participant can submit a maximum of one individual proposal and one collective. The production support and the residency must allow the conception, formalization, production and/or completion of the proposed project, using the facilities of the workshop if needed, with the objective of its following exhibition / presentation at the Sala Project for exhibition projects and at the Off Blue space for performance projects.
Submitted projects may include any artistic-cultural field of any discipline, regardless the format or technique employed. Each project must be developed or completed in a period of residency of maximum of six weeks previous to its presentation / exhibition, at the usual open hours of the foundation (from Tuesday to Friday, from 10 am to 8 pm, and Saturday and Sunday, from noon to 7 pm). The period of residency for performance projects may be flexible and to be agreed according its work plan and the foundation calendar.
The foundation commits to providing a range of materials and human resources for the proper development of the projects: Use of the entire workshop space for a maximum period of six weeks (for each project) to develop the selected project. The use of this space includes free Wi-Fi, basic cleaning of the space and the tools and resources at the foundation's disposal.
Blueproject Foundation offers for the artists-in-residence and other guest artists El Taller, a private space located on the first floor of the foundation. This room of approximately 100 square metres offers the facilities and flexibility necessary for the realization of works and projects of the selected artists.
The amount assigned is also to cover the accommodation and expenses in case of Barcelona non-resident artists. They have some arrangements to find accommodation for artists.
