A-i-R Wro Talks

A-i-R Wro Talks: networking, professional development, education, experience exchange

 

A-i-R Wro Talks 2.0 // 29.11-1.12.2016, Wrocław, Sokołowsko

What artistic residencies really are and how to define them? Where are the reference points, that determine whether something qualifies as artistic residency or not? What are the benefits of this type of activity for the artists and art and culture sector, and what are the difficulties faced by people involved in residencies? How to find funds for projects, which initial goals and results can transform on the very first day of the residency, and their inclusiveness is often created just to gain higher scores when the applications for funding are being assessed? Are the projects focused on the artists and their development of less value than the ones directed to local communities? And finally, what should define and characterize an institution or organization running a residential programme – regardless whether it’s a residency for artists, curators, animators, cultural managers or collectives, or an artistic activity, cultural animation, research or socially engaged project. We will try to answer these, and other questions, together with a group of practitioners and experts participating in A-i-R Wro Talks – a series of international meetings organized by the Artist-in-Residence Programme A-i-R Wro.
