EQUILIBRIUM is an international cultural initiative that aims at building creative contexts in villages and towns in India. We invite proposals for a 5-week residency in Partapur, during which participating artists will be introduced to women’s independent self-help-groups, and we expect the artist to spend time with members of her assigned group/s, conduct at least one creative skill-enhancing workshop at a local school, and create new work/ processes that emerge through dialogue and participation of the group. We are keen to have proposals that have potential for a collaborative practice to emerge. We hope that EQUILIBRIUM adds to the ongoing conversations between artists and different communities in this town. We feel that this would in a significant way encourage the connectedness of art practice to everyday life.
Deadline for application 15th, May, 2014. Selected artists will be informed by June 02, 2014. Participation for the entire duration of 5 weeks is compulsory.
