SEA Foundation invites applications for their international funded residency program 2018
SEA Foundation is a Dutch not-for-profit, artist-led organisation in Tilburg the Netherlands established in 2011. Over the past few years SEA Foundation became known as an umbrella label for, support, solo exhibitions, art projects, exchanges and publications. From 2013 we also run an Artist in Residence programme – AiR Tilburg – which attracts artists, curators and writers to residencies that include bespoke mentoring.
AiR Tilburg Residency Program is suited to local and international thinkers and practitioners: artists, writers, curators, sound artists, cultural managers, and academics, providing them with the opportunity to live and work in Tilburg while developing individual projects and immersing themselves in the region’s creative sphere. The residencies are run alongside an exhibition and public program, enabling residents to benefit from collaboration with these programs that draw participants and mentors from a wide range backgrounds.
As an AiR Tilburg resident you have uninterrupted, self-directed work time. Depending on your proposal you may focus on production of new work, research as well as development concepts. During each residency period there are optional activities that are conceived to promote not only collaboration between artists, but to empower ideas between different participants as well as facilitate interdisciplinary learning. Resident artists, writers and curators embrace the role of contributing to an active platform of thinking, discussion, production and sharing.
It is optional to give a talk, workshop, end the residency with an exhibition, draft a proposal, work with local organisations or revise a manuscript or make an artist book to name a few. AiR Tilburg Netherlands assists residents by approaching contacts and making arrangements as and when the project requires. Depending on the nature of the work, residents work with an external mentor, curator, master and/or a SEA Foundation team member.
