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.

Applicants, who are selected in the second round, will be offered the same type of residence of a duration of 1-2 months for a 700€ fee per month, which will cover the costs of their stay. The projects within this type of residence won’t be showcased as a part of the program of Jedna Dva Tři Gallery.

There will be up to 12 residents chosen for the paid residence in the second round.

Petrohradská kolektiv can provide confirmations in forms of acceptance letters to prospective residents applying for external financial funding of their residence.
