The CYENS – Thinker Maker Space is pleased to announce an open call for the Artist-in-Residence Program intended for creative individuals.
Resident artists will enjoy full access to the Makerspace facilities allowing experimentation with advanced fabrication techniques. They will also have the opportunity to present and exhibit their work at the end of the residency. Additionally, artists may co-organise and host a series of workshops and talks relating to their practice and area of expertise.
The Makerspace residencies are hosted on a short-term basis ranging from two weeks and up to six months. The open-call invites individuals from the creative industry (creators, designers, visual artists, academics or others) to submit a portfolio and a project proposal.
Applications will be judged and selected by an internal committee based on project criteria and briefs that are aligned with the makerspace vision and capabilities. Proposals need to include details of the project’s purpose and outcomes emphasising on fabrication methods.
