Do you practice cross-sector or participatory approaches in your activities? Do you have the curiosity to take part in a research and networking residency? Are you interested in the processes behind the creation, functioning, but also disintegration of working grassroots initiatives and “wandering” post-artist projects? Apply for the autumn residency at the Wroclaw Institute of Culture. The project will be an opportunity to reflect on open, inclusive, connecting, equal spaces (physical or not) of community activities.

Curators, researchers, educators, civil servants, art mediators, as well as creative people: artists or designers from all over Poland are encouraged to participate in the call. Open call is directed to all those curious about the subject, representing the broader environment of culture and art or research. The project is co-financed by the European Union.
