SNEHTA RESIDENCY - JANUARY/FEBRUARY 

 

Snehta wants to open its doors to three (3) contemporary art practitioners to live and work in Athens for two months during the winter, spring and summer periods in 2020. 

January – February  (Deadline 10th November 2019, 12:00 pm)

 

An established Athens-based curator will work with each artist throughout their stay and support their research and the realisation of their exhibition.

Access the application/guidelines document form here: https://www.snehtaresidency.org/application

Then complete the Application form and return it with all the relevant material to: applications@snehtaresidency.org

 

Email title: “January/February residency”

 

Residencies run for an agreed period of two (2) months and will begin at the start of the two month period up until the end of the second month, so artists should look for flights as close to these dates as possible. 

Residents are selected by a committee consisting of the Snehta team and an external Athens based curator who will work closely with the artists throughout their stay. The curator will be in touch with the artists prior to and during their visit to Athens, to discuss each artists practice and intentions. They will aim to knit a tight collaboration between the artists, themselves and the local scene and work towards an idea or concept which will result in an exhibition or public event. The Snehta team will coordinate and monitor this collaboration throughout. 

 

Who are we looking for 

We are looking for contemporary practitioners that will demonstrate a genuine interest in the social context of Athens and who can engage with it critically by challenging social norms and taboos. 

We are looking for creative practitioners who will be open to collaborate and work with other artists and curators. 

Snehta candidates should demonstrate an interest in the local community of Kypseli or more widely towards other communities based in the city. 

We are interested in artists who are driven by a research-based and explorative approach, and who will engage playfully and creatively with the city. 

We will take artists on board who believe Art is a vehicle for increasing awareness and participation in the community.

 

What the residency offers to the artist 

The project is research based — the work made from this research can be shown in a group exhibition in which an Athens based curator will collaborate closely with the resident artists. Snehta has had continuous public showcases in the city since 2012 with a track record of over 50 exhibitions.  

Lodgings, a bedroom per artist, a spacious shared studio and smaller private studios (for fees see section 3.) 

Access to a wood workshop, the Snehta library and a dark room.

Guidance and one-to-one support for the facilitation of each project, including the acquisition of various resources requested whether technical or otherwise. Artists must engage in a dialogue with the Snehta team to request assistance. 

Supplying each artist with a tailored toolkit, which includes sites of possible interests, maps, art supply shops and useful contacts. 

Encouraging artists to interact with other Athens-based organisations and creatives. Offering artists support to communicate and pass their message across to these organisations and individuals. 

Encouraging and supporting resident artists to have an open-studio and/or an artist led talk event at the interim stage of their residency. 

The progress and work produced by each artist will be promoted on our website and on our social media platforms (Facebook/Instagram) and through our e-newsletter. 

Snehta supports artists with letters of recommendation for funding applications. 

We aim to foster collaborations beyond the residency, and will support returning artists as much as we can via our network. 

 

What is expected from the Artist

There is an artist fee of 870 EUR per month plus a 100 EUR deposit. 

This can be paid via online banking, or transferwise. 

Our fee covers all of the above services mentioned in section 2. This fee also covers the artists accommodation and studio related expenses such as electricity, water and internet. 

Successful applicants must pay 300 EUR upon confirmation of their place on the programme (for more details concerning fees refer to Snehta agreement.closures 3.2-3.4). 

A two-part agreement between the prospect resident and Snehta Residency will be signed. 

The residency doesn’t provide the artists with meals or production materials. * Leftover materials found in the studio can be used. 

Artists should expect to spend around 650 EUR(!) for additional living costs per month. This figure has been roughly estimated to include expenses such as public transport, food, museum entries and other recreational activities. Although it may be higher or lower depending on the activities undertaken. 

Official Collaborators 

Snehta is supported by Outset Contemporary Art Fund (Greece).
