SODAS 2123 is looking for sound artists with various backgrounds for a funded 2-month-long artist-in-residency program in Vilnius, Lithuania. The organisers are interested in manifestations of sounds that raise important questions and construct visions of social, cultural and spatial futures.
Especially artists who use field recordings, autotuned, sung or spoken words, mixed sounds, installations or other sonic interpretations to react to the latest (geo)political, ecological and social issues, are welcome to apply.
SODAS 2123 offers over 50 artists’ studios, rehearsal studios for bands, offices for design, film and visual arts organisations, exhibition spaces, event spaces, various workshops, a café, a public outdoor garden space, a public allotment and more. The residents will also get curatorial support, consulting residents about their artistic projects and research, organising studio visits to local artists’ studios, project spaces, exhibitions spaces and other residency centres. The program aims to build long-term relations between visiting artists and the local art scene.
The residency will take place from 1 December 2022 to 31 January 2023 and from 1 April to 31 May 2023. The residency grant is 1600 EUR per artist (tax inclusive). Only artists from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania (as well as the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Åland) are eligible to apply until 10 September.

The SODAS 2123 cultural complex is a self-governing community-based space, operated and curated by the Lithuanian Interdisciplinary Artists’ Association. It brings together creators and researchers from different fields, with practices based on experimentation and developing unexpected formats.
