Final event that will be either an exhibition, action or performance. Also documentation material about the residency.
Participants use the storefront window to showcase the work in progress and document and publish their creative process and exhibit the work produced in a free form such as exhibition, action or performance at a closing public event.
CURTIDOS is one space to live and work. It has a kitchen and a small bathroom. It is meant for artists that do not need too much space for their work: writers, programmers, hackers, designers, sound artists, photographers, filmmakers etc.
The residency space is for one artist - even though a couple could also fit- it's a 45 square meter organised as a working space (with printer, drawing material and bricolage tools) and a mezzanine with bed and basic living facilities.
They provide a small library, printer, bricolage tools and a bicycle.
