ResSupport Fellowship

ResSupport Fellowship is the name for Res Artis’s ongoing exchange program of cultural workers at residency centers in the Res Artis network.

As a network we believe that these exchanges between the members of Res Artis are an effective way for mutual learning and know-how interchange.

This exchange experience allows its participants to observe and reflect on various organisational aspects while also gaining an in-depth view and taking active part in daily work of an experienced member organisation from our network. The practice also provides the occasion to increase organisational consciousness, strengthen the bonds, and also generate knowledge and cultural sharing among the members of the Res Artis network.

The motivation of the ResSupport Fellowship program focuses on the exchange of ideas, resources, and problem solving solutions for the organisations involved.

Res Artis acts as a matchmaker, pairing applicants with appropriate hosting organisations. Furthermore, we provide support to help assure satisfying experiences on both ends. The Res Support Fellowship is open to the staff of all Res Artis members including all organisational positions.

FUNDING

Res Artis is especially interested in providing fellowships for emerging members in underrepresented parts of the world. Although the Res Artis fellowship is based on the hospitality of its members, additional funding is needed to afford these exchanges. Res Artis is looking for funding support in order to work together to reach this goal.

The first Fellowships

In April 2012, the 18th Street Art Center in Los Angeles, USA hosted residency directors from South America ‘in residence’ within their organisation. Giuseppe De Bernardi from Lima, Peru and Francisca Caporali from Belo Horizonte, Brazil spent one month, learning about how artist residencies are run in the States. They spent time at 18th Street as well as visiting other residencies in the area. Their trip was supported by the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
