The DIALOG CITY Art for Public Residency Programme invites professional artists to develop ideas for urban interventions dealing with local or global topics that are of great significance for urban society and that are based on a participatory approach.
By developing new practices for how to connect digital innovation directly to citizens’ physical participation, the European cooperation project DIALOG CITY aims to contribute to increasing access to culture through a dialogical approach. Co-creation is at the core, encompassing a Citizen Archive Platform for the cultural heritage sector and an innovative design thinking toolkit on Future Literacy. Annual Hybrid Festivals serve as physical and digital cultural platforms to reach diverse audiences.
Participating European cities are Mondoví (IT) in 2023, Graz (AT) in 2024, Aschaffenburg (DE) and Montpellier (FR) in 2025. The resulting art works of the respective residencies will be shown locally during the annual Hybrid Festival as well as online.
This open call is for a residency in Turin and Mondoví running from 20 June – 24 July 2023. Selected artists receive accommodation, travel costs up to 1300 EUR, material costs up to 2000 EUR, and an artist fee of 3500 EUR.
The programme is open to all artistic disciplines (e.g., visual arts, writing, performance, new media, etc.) and other creative practices including, but not limited to, design, architecture, and education. The organisers strongly encourage applicants with interdisciplinary and participatory / socially engaged art practices. Artists of all nationalities can apply, but they must reside in the European Union or in one of the accession countries.
