In this call, for which the period for submitting applications will remain open until May 27, a total of six artistic ideas will be selected. The authors of those ideas will undertake stays of between four and 12 weeks. All residencies will offer the space, the context and the time necessary to undertake the selected projects. The call, which will be resolved on 27 July 2018, is open to applicants residing in the Basque Autonomous Community, Spain and abroad.


This programme seeks to generate a space to promote possible collaboration between residents and invited agents, and with the thematic lines included in Tabakalera’s programme.


Four artistic residency modalities
The call includes four modalities, each with its own objective, endowment and duration:

Open call residency for artistic projects

It supports the development of artistic projects in any of its formats, regardless of the artistic discipline. Three projects will be chosen.


Open call residency for artistic projects in collaboration

It has the goal of providing an artist residing in the Basque Autonomous Community with the opportunity to invite another artist residing outside the Basque Autonomous Community to a residency, with the goal of developing a collaborative artistic project. One proposal will be chosen.


Open call residency for artistic research

It promotes the undertaking of artistic research projects. The residency will consist of two parts: on one hand is the research, which will be carried out over the course of a three-month residency and, this year, will focus on the programme “Ariketak: la segunda respiración,” one of Tabakalera’s thematic focuses for 2018-2019. On the other hand, the resident will have to propose a programme of activities derived from the research process which will become part of the Centre’s public programming. One project will be chosen.


Open residency for audio-visual projects

It supports the development of audio-visual projects. One project will be selected.
