Culture Zone Wroclaw’s programme AIR Wro offers residencies, study visits and opportunities for international collaborations specifically to designers, makers and artists, with an environmental focus. The current open call is inviting applications for the Aerial Residency 2018 in Sokołowsko in Lower Silesia, Poland in March and April of this year.
Together with the Culture-Ecological Association Filtrator, the Culture Zone Wrocław offers this residency in partnership with each other, to promote a civic attitude to local environmental issues affecting those in and around Sokolowsko. The successful applicant will represent arts and culture and engage in projects with a community focus, with education and sustainability in mind.
The residency will take place at Pralnia Makerspace – a former health resort in Sokolowsko renowned for its clean fresh mountain air, that was used historically to treat lung diseases. The region suffers today from significant air pollution due to poor climactic conditions and the residency is aimed at engaging the artists with the community to improve outcomes around this situation.
The residency offers accommodation, access to equipment, capped reimbursement of travel costs, a daily allowance and funds to cover expenses related to materials, as well as support of the project.
The call for applications for the Aerial residency will close on Monday 19th February 2018. Applications should include a CV and completed application form which can be downloaded here. These together can be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
