Annual Grant Residency Program Zaratan AiR 2023

The grant covers private accommodation, 24/7 private working studio, technical assistance, promotion and communication support

Once a year Zaratan offers a 4 weeks residency grant, which covers the studio and accommodation fees for one artist selected through the application process. Emerging and professional artists, performers, musicians, curators, writers and other cultural agents are eligible to apply. The residency program is designed for international artists - or national artists residing abroad - for the development of artistic projects, individual or collective. Zaratan defends a multidisciplinary and experimental attitude, where all the areas and the languages of artistic expression are considered.

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 into 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, and 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 formats of public presentations.
