Online seminar: Community Care Laboratory

Online seminar: Community Care Laboratory

Adam Mickiewicz Institute, Fine Arts Academy in Katowice and the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art invite artists and cultural practitioners to a cycle of online seminars about the potential of artists’ residencies, especially in a world where many aspects of our lives and human interactions have become increasingly complicated.

The moderated discussion panels focus on key words Community, Care and Laboratory while attempting to look into problems currently facing the sector of artists’ residencies.

The situation of residencies in a world where the possibilities of movement have become limited will be analysed during these sessions, and other formats considered: For example online residencies – whether they are effective and feasible. As well as the subject of communities, both set and temporary, which grow around residencies, and the various levels of the relations within them: those between the residents and between the local and international communities.

The seminar also aims to facilitate exchange and networking between residency operators through the Online Open Studios segment. In this section various organisations and initiatives running residencies will be able to present their profiles, programmes and residents’ projects during 7-minute slots.
