An intimate art space for developing and sharing your artistic, curatorial or cultural project.

Description of residency program
halka sanat projesi is a non-profit, independent art initiative focusing in the production, discourse and presentation of contemporary art since 2011. The space is located in one of the most beautiful, motivated and sophisticated neighbourhood on the Asian Side of Istanbul, Kadiköy-Moda. Here, we create for artists, writers, curators, film makers, cultural researchers, a hub to both concentrate on work yet to socialize and exchange experiences with the artistic cycles, artists, art students, and local audience thruogh artist talks, workshops and exhibitions regarding the necessities of the proposed project.

Duration of residency
The residency perods available for 2019 are in the following months: July - August. The residency period can vary from 4 to 8 weeks.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
We encourage all visual artists, photographers, dancers, musicians, video and performance artists, writers, film makers, cultural researchers and curators who have a project idea to come join us.

Accommodation and studio/ workspace
halka sanat projesi AIR programme offers the selected participants private rooms with working units within, aside from the co-shared studio spaces, a co-shared kitchen, bathrooms, an exhibiting spaces with the residency.

Fees and support
The participants pay 375€ weekly for single artist or 550€ weekly for artists duos. Since halka is an independent organization initiated and sustained without any public or private support or sponsorship it has to create its own resources to continue its commitment to art, artists and the audience and to be able to provide professional services in return to this contribution.

We provide both physical and intellectual space that the residencts need to be productive. We work in every step of their project with them in its development, curation, promotion and networking among the members of the community, fellow art professionals and local and international audience. We provide exhibiting and self-presentation opportunities for our participant residents.

Expectations towards the artist
In return we expect to see and share with the audience the end results of the residency in the form of an exhibition, artist talk or a workshop which we can decide together.
