The European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC) has connected with the Villa Romana (Florence) residency program to offer an artistic residency for two Roma contemporary artists. The program will take place in early 2022 and covers travel expenses, accommodation and a monthly allowance.
This initiative has been founded by these two institutions to provide Roma contemporary art practice and emerging Roma-based artists themselves with recognition and inspiration. The residency will give the chosen participants a unique opportunity to connect with other artists and to research the art on-site. Seeing as accommodation, allowance and travel expenses are provided for, it also serves as a safe space for the selected recipients to concentrate on their work.
The program invites any visual artists with a self-declared Roma identity to apply. While their work must provide a special contribution to contemporary art production, a specific description of the projects they hope to pursue during the program is not necessary. Instead, individuals are asked to apply with their CV and portfolio by January 14, 2021.
The recipients will be screened and selected by a respected jury of leading contemporary art figures, consisting of Angelika Stepken, Daniel Baker, Maria Lind and Timea Junghaus.
Deadline: Jan. 14, 2021
