Open Call | Aerial Residency, Sokolowsko, Poland

Application deadline: 19 February

AIR Wro is a programme of residencies, study visits and international cooperation that is a part of Culture Zone Wrocław. The goal of AIR Wro is to support and promote the activities of artists representing various fields of culture and art, who are interested in cooperation with representatives of local communities and circles, as well as those willing to build international cultural relations.

Culture-Ecological Association Filtrator and Culture Zone Wrocław within the framework of AIR Wro Programme are jointly launching a call for a residency in Sokołowsko in Lower Silesia, Poland. Residency is dedicated to designers, makers and artists active in the field of community projects, education and sustainable development as a part of promoting a civic attitude towards the local environment.

The aim of the project is to make the inhabitants of Sokołowsko and Lower Silesia aware of how big the threat to sustainable development and ecology is the polluted air. By finding reference points in the past times of Sokołowsko, the organisers want to create a space for the resident artist to hook up the topics related with the quality of life in the town, offering him/her a range of equipment to create means of expression. Using his/her experience in working in similar spaces, the resident will have the opportunity to cooperate with the local community to develop a message or social campaign aimed at educating and activating inhabitants in the field of taking care of the quality of their nearest environment.

Are covered: travel costs, accomodation, funds for materials, a fee or daily allowance up to the amount of 3000 PLN, access to equipment such as: screen printing, RISO, 3D printing, CNC technology and electronics.
