India | EQUILIBRIUM | 5-week residency programme | call for applications
Organised in the framework of Creative Encounters: Cultural Partnerships between Asia and Europe, EQUILIBRIUM is an international cultural initiative that aims at building creative contexts in villages and towns in India. Currently located in Partapur, the main aim of this project is to provide a platform for artists from Asia and Europe to engage in a dialogue with local communities through women's groups in and around Partapur.
Artists are invited to submit proposals for a 5-week residency that will involve activities with local women and lead toward creative capacity-building at a local school. The proposals should generate new works and processes resulting from dialogue and participation among local women's groups, as well as build stronger ties between art practices and everyday life.
