Application deadline: 13 September.
Delfina Foundation (DF) is London’s largest provider of international residencies, promoting artistic exchange and experimentation around common practices and ideas.
DF is now launching a new thematic area to bring together shared interests and concerns in the fields of art, science and technology. This theme will initially underline some of DF’s activities from January 2019 and build towards a concentrated programme of events, projects and exhibitions in autumn 2019, interrelated with residencies.
This open call is to invite expressions of interest from artists and thinkers who are already actively envisioning projects that cross art, science, and technology. The purpose of this open call is to select projects and practitioners that we wish to engage and support through residencies, collaborations and commissions, as well as to identify key concerns and approaches that will ultimately shape our programme over 2019 and beyond.
Delfina Foundation will complement those selected from this open call with other relevant participants and experts from various fields, depending on the project(s). The ambition is to create a focused environment to foster collaboration, incubate ideas and support the development of new projects that can make an impact on the world around us. For this reason, they prefer projects that are problem-led, whereby the programme can be used to develop solutions through cross- disciplinary, mutual exchange. They are also interested in ideas that have the capacity to go beyond exhibition spaces, science labs and publications. They want to explore different modes of production and dissemination, including those that interface with the coalface of environmental concerns to those that might have commercial viability.
What is included in the residency for International Fellows?
All basic costs of living in London are included in residencies. International Fellows will be provided with international and local travel, UK airport transfers, visa reimbursements, a food allowance/per diems, a modest allowance to enable research/production (depending on residency/project), and accommodation in London.
