Opened from 15.01.2020 to 21.02.2020
OPEN CALL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
This is an open call to select two projects for artistic residences of two months duration in Valencia and Alicante. The projects presented must be based upon the proposed research framework, and the working space, and the space in which the project’s results will be presented, must be those proposed by the project, i.e., in Valencia, the Centre del Carme Cultura Contemporània, and in Alicante, Centre Cultural Las Cigarreras.
The results generated in this project will be presented publicly as results produced within the framework Ecosystems of Fiction.
WHO IS IT AIMED AT?
The call is aimed at artists or groups of artists who may be interested in the proposed social contexts, and in the proposed theme. Applicants must have some fluency in Spanish or Valencian. A project will be selected for each location.
WHAT IS OFFERED
The selected proposals will have the following benefits (taxes included):
- 2,400€ in fees
- Travel cost to and from the residence up to a maximum of 400 euros.
- A maximum of 1,600 euros in production and presentation of results, which will be managed together with the organization and justified by invoices.
Payment of fees will be realised in two tranches, 60% at the beginning of the residence and 40% before the end of the residence, after due clearance has been observed. Production costs must be examined and cleared by the organisation. Projects realised by a collective will be paid the same fees as for individual artists. Under no circumstances will project fees be increased on account of a single project being realised by more than one artist, although their work will be jointly credited.
The accommodation for an artist (or a representative in the case of groups) is covered by the organization. If the project is developed by more than one person, the rest of the components will be managed by the collective. Work-spaces are situated in one of the collaborating facilities: Valencia - Centre del Carme Cultura Contemporània and Alicante - Centre Cultural Las Cigarreras.

Selected projects should mention in their offline and online communications, websites, social networks and other channels and platforms that they form part of IDENSITAT’S programme TRANSVERSAL AESTHETICS - ECOSYSTEMS OF FICTION, with the Consorci de Museus de la Comunitat Valenciana and the collaboration of Centre del Carme Cultura Contemporània in Valencia and Centre Cultural Las Cigarreras in Alicante.
Transversal Aesthetics was created as a "hothouse" of projects linked to medium-sized towns, and their cultural facilities. The programme has been developed in different towns within the Catalan context (Manresa, Badalona, Vilanova i la Geltrú, Mataró, Avinyó) and in Navarra, in the towns of Huarte, Burlada and Villava, thanks to the collaboration of the Centro Huarte de Arte Contemporáneo, where Ecosystems of Fiction was developed in parallel. During 2018 and 2019 Transversal Aesthetics – Ecosystems of Leisure was carried out by IDENSITAT and the Consorci de Museus de la Comunitat Valenciana, deploying a series of actions that explored the concept of leisure from the perspective of art.
