OPEN CALL AIR PRAGUE
ZID theater is inviting storytellers to apply for the third residency program within the “Remix Comix” project, which will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, from July 1 to 15, 2023.
Who can apply
The call is open to one artist based in the Netherlands, with no restrictions on age or country of origin.
Participants from four countries – the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Slovenia and Serbia – will collaborate during the two weeks of joint work. The resident’s working language is English.
About the project
“Remix Comix” is a project supported by the European Commission through the Creative Europe program, and is realized in cooperation with six associations – MMC Led art Novi Sad, Lustr Fest Prague, Komunikart Pančevo, Forum Ljubljana, Zid teather Amsterdam and Foundation Novi Sad – the European capital of Culture 2022 Novi Sad.
The project aims to explore the local cultural heritage of microenvironments, specific historical moments, significant figures, urban legends and heroes from the region, and present them to the audience through the form of comics. The specificity of the project is that the local cultural heritage will be viewed from the point of view of socially sensitive and vulnerable groups, whose representatives will be involved in working with artists.
About the AIR
By exploring the theme On the outskirts (of society) the residents will come in contact with people from Residential Child Care Homes and will reflect on the various issues young adults face when leaving these institutions without much of a social and financial network to fall back onto. The outcome will be a mural painting (a mix of comics, illustration and storytelling) and a website.
How to apply
To apply for the Remix Comix Residency Program, you must send a motivation letter together with your portfolio to email@example.com before March 20th.
Good to know
The organizer will provide accommodation, travel expenses and fees for the selected participant of the residency.
