Tartu Artist in Residence Open Call for the year 2018!

The Estonian scenic city of Tartu is waiting for artists!

Artists of various disciplines will have the opportunity to work, live and find new inspiration in the scenic city of Tartu for a period of one or three months. The deadline for applications is 15.10.17 and the results will be announced on 15.11.17.

TAiR is a unique artist in residence program that is realized through the collaboration of various partner organizations who contribute different skills & resources, thereby making it possible to cater to different genres. Our main areas of competence are printmaking and visual arts, but the program is open to artists from all creative disciplines. Based on the applications from artists, we try to tailor each residency to meet the requirements of the project.

Although we mainly work with artists, we are looking forward to also hosting curators and art scholars provided that we work out a meaningful project. During the past years, TAiR has received multiple artists from Australia and Canada. In order to diversify our selection, we encourage artists from all countries to apply!

Here is some information about the residencies in 2018:

In 2018, we offer two residency packages:

  • A short-term residency (about one month) at the end of which a public outcome is possible (open studio, workshop, artist talk, etc.).

Thematic Priorities
(Note: for one-month residencies, the thematic priority is not a requirement, but an added bonus to your application. For three-month residencies, we do expect to see your own interpretation of the theme in your application)

For 2018, we are looking forward to projects connected to the theme of ‘Celebrations’. The year 2018 is indeed a time of great celebration for Estonia as the country is celebrating its 100th anniversary. To sum up the history of Estonia’s independence in a few sentences: on the 24th of February 1918, Estonia declared its autonomy for the first time. Declaring independence in an official manifesto doesn’t sadly make it happen so easily in reality, especially at the time of war. Although it took more than a document to achieve freedom, the 24th of February 2018 is still regarded as the Independence Day and is, therefore, the centenary of the Republic of Estonia.

For this event, the country is head over heels in celebration projects – until today, over 500* official „gifts“ have been presented to Estonia by its citizens. If during 2018 everyone’s in a festive mood, why not join the party! We are thus looking forward to receiving project proposals that celebrate our greatest anniversary in a unique and creative way.
