Grant for Residency Program ZARATAN AIR 2021
Once a year Zaratan offers a 4 weeks residency grant which covers the studio and accommodation fees for one artist selected through the applications process. Driven by the desire to intensify and exchange knowledge with artists through creative and productive practices, in 2015 Zaratan announced the promotion of an international art residency. Their goal is to mix experienced with emerging artists and give them the possibility to bring their work in an experimental context through exchange and collaboration within the local network. The artists-in-residence at Zaratan are given the opportunity to develop a project over a fixed period of time, and to reflect and consolidate their artistic practice in the specific context of Lisbon.
They provide private accommodation, 24/7 private working studio, technical assistance, promotion and communication support, open public presentation of the residency process. Although labs and technique-specific facilities are not available, the organisers will do their best to fulfill your needs, providing logistical support for producing work and events within their network of partners and collaborators. All artists are encouraged and welcome to share the outcome of their residency through talks, performance, open studios, or other format of public presentations.
