Three regions in Italy, summer 2019, thematic residencies, focus on community

3-4 weeks in one of Terra Vivente´s locations in Sardinia, or the north or south of Italy.

Description of residency program
Terra Vivente offers programming in the summers only, in three regions of Italy, the north, the south and Sardinia. All locations are in small villages, so the focus is on community engagement. Each location has a different but related theme. June in Sardinia focuses on the neighbourhood; July in the Taleggio Valley welcomes artists interested in the slow-food movement or the zero-kilometre diet, while August in Campania is open to artists interested in paleontology. Artists are not required to work with these themes; they are offered because of the nature of the location; however, priority is given to artists whose focus is community engagement, social practice or sustainability.  

Duration of residency
3-4 weeks

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
Visual arts, film, video, textiles, sound, social practice.

Studio/ workspace
