Institutional Residencies provide an in-depth period of stay for Arts Collaboratory organizations to study the methodological approaches and contexts of the other organizations in the network. These exchanges allow participants access to the inner workings of the other organizations, gaining knowledge on how the individual cultural programs function in the locality. Residents meet with the collaborating artists and researchers, undertake visits to other institutions in the context, and share their organization’s program and practices with the local community.
At present, two residencies for artists, curators or researchers in the network are undertaken in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture of Colombia. Residencies take place annually with Arts Collaboratory organizations in Colombia while two Colombian residents are also hosted by participating Arts Collaboratory organizations outside of Colombia. During their month long stay, participants develop projects related to the local context. Information on the application process can be found here.
