CCA ŁAŹNIA 2 Residence Program 2013 announces open–call for 2 Artists

2013 will be the pilot year for the artists’ residencies in CCA ŁAŹNIA 2. We plan to open our door for 2 artists interested in developing their practice and creating new work in the context of Gdansk, and its district New Port.

The entire 3rd floor of the newly rebuilt former boathouse building in New Port district of Gdańsk was transformed into 8 studios for artists. The building consists also of a cinema, library and workshop space, that can be all used by the artists for their works of art. The living accommodation provides potential for many types of Art based activities to take place such as discussions, film screenings and social events. Artists Residency shall culminate in a form of a final work in the shape chosen by the artist.

New Port district is currently undergoing the process of revitalization lacking cultural activities. We are therefore looking for works socially engaged and developed to stimulate public space. Artists are encouraged to establish a collaboration / discussion with the local community members and local industries (for example the port). The residency will provide artists the opportunity to research and develop their ideas through the production of new works.

Artists Residency shall be divided into 2 separated stages:
2 weeks research visit to be carried out between May and June
Production stage 2 months to be carried out between August and November

CCA ŁAŹNIA 2 will offer:
– a space to live and work
