Delfina Foundation Open Call
NOW OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS
Delfina Foundation (DF) is inviting artists, curators, writers, film makers and other cultural practitioners interested in exploring issues surrounding the politics of food to apply for our first theme-based residency, scheduled to run from mid January to mid April 2014.
By bringing together practitioners from different creative fields, DF would like to explore how artistic strategies have and can be used to address wide-ranging issues related to food, agriculture, human rights and the environment. DF is particularly interested in practitioners whose work transgresses the boundaries between art and every day life.
The politics of food residency will launch a new residency model at DF around seasonal programmes, during which artists, curators and thinkers will be invited to stay at the foundation for short and long residencies to jointly discuss and explore salient issues in contemporary art. While DF has had a strong connection with the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia (MENASA) over the last six years, applicants from the around the world are invited to apply to this new programme which focuses on supporting common practices from the MENASA regions, alongside practitioners from other parts of the world.
The selected resident(s) will receive: A 12-week residency at DF in London, including accommodation in our newly opened premises in Victoria, one economy return flight, a bursary for per diems and a local travel allowance.
Closing date for applications: 29 July 2013, 17:00
