Artists in Residence - Quinta das Relvas




Call for applications!

Quinta das Relvas Association invites artists and curators from all practices, genders, ages, nationalities and ethnicities to apply to our new program of one-month residencies.

Artists in Residence - Quinta das Relvas is a program of one-month artist residency, that takes place at Quinta das Relvas Association. 

Quinta das Relvas, is a non-profit NGO located in Branca, in the municipality of Albergaria-a-Velha in Portugal, and is dedicated to non-formal education activities in the areas of Arts and Sustainability. Quinta das Relvas headquarters are placed in a farm, that has a unique natural heritage in terms of native fauna and flora, as well as a rich history with the local population (it is an 18th century manor house where several families have lived). Here, Quinta das Relvas’ team works daily to promote and develop activities capable of training participants and staff in the association's areas of activity (Arts and Sustainability) through the sharing of knowledge in events of various kinds, including conferences, workshops, artistic residencies, and exchanges. The target audience of Quinta das Relvas is, in particular, young adult in training, at the beginning of their careers, giving priority to those who are in some way disadvantaged and / or at risk, in a local, national and international context. Sending participants to international activities through training and exchange programs, free of charge, is also one of the association’s fields of action.

The organization has a multidisciplinary team with elements working in the fields of event management, education, plastic and performing arts, architecture, meditation, permaculture, among others.


How is our Artists in Residence (AIR) program?

This program was created to fulfill a need and a demand from people that contacted us before, willing to work at the farm on their personal projects. With this in mind, we applied our expertise from other projects of ours such as GRÃO - residência artística e de investigação (AIR program for national emerging artists) to create this new AIR  with unique characteristics that we believe will empower our artists in residence, both in personal and artistic ways. 

Artists who apply for this AIR program must understand and accept that they will be producing work in a rural environment, which brings with it challenges that require the availability of the resident to adapt to them. 

Artists will be able to work in different spaces of the farm, including a studio (an 80m2 wooden structure placed in the middle of the woods, full of natural light), and will benefit from the close contact with other artists, from different backgrounds and nationalities, and will have the possibility of preparing an exhibition in a local venue, at the end of the one-month period established for the residency. The association is open to the initiatives of our artists residents, (such as organizing workshops, talks, events that engage local community etc…) and we will have a member of our team available to help materialize any initiatives that may be proposed. 

This program requests a fee of 350€ per artist for the duration of one-month residency that includes:

Studio space 20m2 ;
The residency receives a total of 4 residents per period, who share the studio. The studio is a wood and glass structure, full of natural light, placed in the middle of the forest with a total of 80 m2.

Shared Accommodation;

Equipped kitchen;


Common areas; 

Basic working furniture (on request) such as table, chair, wood planks, easel etc;

Access and usage of tools available in the association;

Constellations Intermediterranean Gazes





From the Roman limes to today’s globalized world, borders may simultaneously play the role of bridge and barrier. Wanderings, nomadisms, pilgrimages, invasions, exiles, and colonization have turned the history of mankind into a history of migrations. Nowadays, the migration phenomena continue its course in its most tragic version. According to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the year 2019 ended with more than 1,200 migrants dying in the Mediterranean Sea and 110,000 arrivals to Europe, which is the sixth consecutive year of massive arrivals.

Convinced of the role of the image as a vehicle for transformation, Constellations wants to support and promote emerging young creation by providing a space for reflection as it imagines, creates, and enriches itself with new forms of cultural hybridization. Through a format of artistic residencies, virtual meetings, traveling exhibitions, and cultural actions, the project aims to help create bridges between the various identities and territories that make up the Euroregion, establishing new points of reflection that have emerged through the artistic and cultural exchange in terms of migration and borders. Constellations also want to promote the virtual format as a normalizing fact in the current context of the health crisis.


1) Artistic residency

Through this call, two young artists will be selected to develop a project on the theme mentioned in one of the two proposed artistic residencies, led by the associations Lumière d'Encre and Es Far Cultural, located in Ceret (Occitania) and Es Mercadal (Menorca) respectively. Each of them, lasting one month, will take place during the spring-summer period of 2021 (see specific dates for each center). Each project will be personal and independent from the other selected artist. During the residency, artists will have at least one meeting with the local public to share their creative process.

2) Virtual meetings

Given the incipient digitization of the artistic content because of the health context, we believe it appropriate to use the virtual space as a platform for communication and debate between artists through 2 open virtual meetings, where they will talk about topics such as the creative process, the conceptualization of their work or the link between identity and territory, among others. Through the sharing of the creative experience of each artist, we want new reflections to emerge around the topics covered, giving rise to new ideas for formalizing the work for the next stage of the exhibition. The virtual actions will be moderated by Jiser association and will be open to the public and broadcast live through the Zoom platform.

3) Face-to-face actions at FotoLimo

This stage establishes the interconnection between the works of the resident artists at the Fotolimo Festival, which will take place in the villages of Colera, Portbou, and Cerbère during the second half of September 2021.

This stage establishes the interconnection between the works of the two artists through a collective and itinerant exhibition. This activity will be linked to others such as round tables and workshops aimed at local schools and/or institutes.

With the aim of establishing intermediate Mediterranean bridges beyond the Euroregional area, an exhibition of the Collective220 will be included. Since 2014, this project brings together several Algerian photographers with the desire to photograph realities in a personal and subjective way, telling stories and bringing new perspectives to today’s Algeria. At the same time, there will be a presentation of the exhibition and a round table with the presence of one of its members, moderated by Jiser.

4) Traveling exhibition

Later, the exhibition will move to Es Mercadal, Minorque, as part of the Menorca Doc Fest (October 29 to November 1, 2021) and, finally, to the Lumière d’Encre Gallery in Ceret at the beginning of 2021.

Prize summary: 
Prizes Details: 

The call is open to photographers and visual artists up to and including age 35, regardless of nationality or condition. An author can submit more than one project but will need to make a separate entry for each of them. Each of the 2 chosen artists will receive an amount of 2,700 € of which 1,500 € corresponds to the artist royalties, 700€ to production and material (managed by the artists), and 500 € to transportation, which includes both the journey to the chosen residence and to FotoLimo festival. Any expenses that exceed these amounts will be assumed by the artist. Any other expenses arising from the exhibition such as its assembly, disassembly, communication, and dissemination of the exhibition will be assumed by the organization of the FotoLimo festival.

OPEN CALL: Artist in Residence at Petrohradská kolektiv, Prague




Our resident Soyoung Bae during her performance ~ I missed you last night and the old lady at the window, AiR Petrohradská kolektiv 2019

Artist In Residence 2021 

Petrohradská kolektiv announces an open call for artists to participate in an international program Artist in Residence for the year 2021.

The residential program is intended for active artists, creators, and theoreticians, who desire independence and want space and technical support for working on their projects. That’s what the Petrohradská kolektiv AiR program offers in the heart of a multi-genre cultural center in Prague. The goal of the program is creating an open platform for international artistic dialogue, interconnection of different cultures, and support for emerging artists working with diverse media.

Residence is an opportunity for independent professional development, artistic exchange, networking, and experiments. Since accommodation and a studio are included, we prefer applicants from outside of Prague.

The resulting outputs of the residences will be showcased in Jedna Dva Tři Gallery at Petrohradská kolektiv complex. The main theme of the exhibition program of the gallery for 2021 is Chaos, therefore we ask the applicants to take this into account when applying with their projects.

Who are we looking for?

Residence is intended for creators with an interest in creative sharing and participation in the field of Prague contemporary art scene.

Prospective residents should introduce us concrete projects that would be realized within their stay in Prague. The final result of the residence is traditionally showcased in Jedna Dva Tři Gallery, which is part of the Petrohradská kolektiv complex. Anyway, the form of the output can be adapted according to each project’s nature.

What do we offer?

  • Accommodation and a studio in the Petrohradská kolektiv complex
  • Covering the travel and material costs (up to 200€)
  • Technical support and consultation
  • Exhibition in Jedna Dva Tři Gallery (or an alternative)
  • Free entrance to all the events organized by Petrohradská kolektiv

The original idea behind Petrohradská kolektiv was to make a community space for creativity and art practice, where there’s a place for both efficient working and pleasant relaxing, where you can focus on your own projects and then take a break without the necessity of leaving the building. 

Within the AiR we provide technical support, promotion, and curatorial assistance. Travel and material costs are covered up to a maximum of 200€.

We know that a convenient working environment is fundamental, therefore within the residence we provide a shared studio with a workshop with basic equipment with an area of 60 square meters, a photo/video studio, and a recording studio. Each project requires different technical equipment, therefore the technology needed is consulted with each resident individually.

Each resident gets a private room in a 3-room apartment with a common area, a kitchen, and a bathroom. The apartment is situated on the ground floor of the Petrohradská kolektiv building.

Petrohradská kolektiv organizes many cultural events within its complex. All of the selected residents get to attend these events for free.

Within the residential program, which works in parallel with these events, there’s an opportunity of collaboration with other artists and mentors from different cultural backgrounds. Thanks to that, residents can actively participate in various programs of Petrohradská kolektiv.

Residence conditions

Participation in the residential program requires communication skills in English or in Czech.

Each resident is obligated to prepare a final report of their stay including a photo documentation.

Residents of the AiR program of Petrohradská kolektiv are required to spend at least 75% of the duration of their stay in the place of the residence.

The stays include an author’s presentation (or its online equivalent) and an exhibition output or else

The residence must be completed within the specified period and it is not possible to interrupt it.

Because of the current situation, the stay is conditioned by submitting a confirmation of a negative test result for COVID-19. The cost of the test is not covered by Petrohradská kolektiv, but the resident themself.

Residence duration

AiR 2021 will take place between May 1 - November 30 2021.

When applying, please let us know about your preferred dates.

There are two types of residence:

1. Fully covered residence:

The fully covered residence doesn’t require any fee paid by the resident. All costs of accommodation and equipment described above will be covered by Petrohradská kolektiv.

The duration of the fully covered residence is 4-6 weeks, when the resident must finish their project and prepare it for the presentation in a form of exhibition. 

In the first round of the selection procedure, a maximum of 6 residents will be selected for the fully covered residence.

2. Residence covered by the resident:

For applicants who are not selected in the first round, there will be a possibility of joining the second round of selection procedure.

Open Call: Hello, can You Hear Me?” / “We’ll meet again!





Kintai Arts is announcing an Open Call for a month-long residency “Hello, Can You Hear Me? / We will meet again!”. This international multidisciplinary residency invites artists and curators to look for new methods of representation and communication during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The Covid-19 pandemic has shuttered the doors of museums, galleries, festivals and art fairs; but it also provided an opportunity for the artists and curators to think about the alternative methods of showcasing work and representation, by using such technologies as VR and AR, getting involved with the IT sector, and thus enabling larger audiences to access art. From virtual exhibitions and online viewing rooms to broadcasting, artists are invited to rethink the role of institutions in their practice, to perhaps expand their audiences, and to reimagine their methods of representation and communication by using online tools. 

In this process oriented residency, artists are invited to freely interpret the gallery space and to transform it into a “scene”, a platform, an open studio or a playground, and to share the creative processes with their virtual audiences. Therefore, we are inviting artists, curators and researchers willing to develop open and live discussions, artistic scenarios, creative workshops and creative presentations. 

Applicants, willing to apply for this Open Call, are invited to submit their Bio or CV, a portfolio with work samples, and a motivational letter that includes a project proposal, by March 15, 2021, by filling out the online registration form on our website. Selected candidates will be informed shortly after the application deadline, and no later than March 26. 

The duration of the residency is one month: April 1 – May 1, 2021.
