Open Call for Artist Residency Summer ‘23
Who are we?
We are Curiosibot Lab, located in beautiful Valencia, Spain in the artistic neighborhood of Russafa. We are a facility catering to creatives in media, music, and interaction. Opened and operated by Curiosibot, we have shown installations at Maker Faire, Sonar, TOA, and other venues. Our space is friendly and runs on the spirit of collaboration. Our space is a bajo of 110sq meters located in the center of Valencia.
Duration of Residency
The residency will run from June – July 2023 or June – July if the project only requires 2 months
Description of Residency
The residency consists of an artist developing an idea in order to present or release. This concept should have a clear plan for production and execution. The artist will have access to equipment and tools to build their project, as well as technical and artistic guidance from the staff. In the instance of an installation or performance, the space may be used as a venue for the work.
We are looking for artists in the disciplines of:
- Music: Creation of an album or EP, Creation of a Music NFT or Mixed Reality or Metaverse Performance
- VR and AR: creation of a VR experience or 360 video
- Interaction and Media Art: creation of an installation, video or AV project, interactive performance or installation using sensors and microcontrollers, creation of multimedia NFT, creation of musical instrument or controller, wearable technology
What is provided
The artist will have a desk in the space and access to the tools, studio, and machines. These tools include 3d printers, a laser cutter, woodworking tools and other tools, a recording studio(with video editing capability), live sound setup, electronics bench, and video production, AV, and VR+360 equipment. Prototyping equipment and sensors are also available. For more information, our inventory is online here: www.curiosibotlab.com Accommodation/Studio apartment on site can be provided for a fee(if available).
Fees and Funding
At this moment, we do not have funding for the program, although we hope to in the future. The artist must provide their own funding. Programs such as Culture Moves Europe and ACA(For Spanish Residents) provide support for artist mobility and the selected artist may apply for these programs. We aim to make the selection so that the artist(s) have time to apply for this funding. Special funding is available for Eastern Europeans and Ukraine.
Monthly fee €120. If accommodation is needed, there is on-site living that can be rented at a subsidized cost, but is based on availability. We can also provide links and suggestions for rooms in the city. Special funding and mobility programs funded by the EU are available for artists from Ukraine.
The artist must have a clear concept with a plan of finishing within the time frame. This can be a project that is already in progress, but the idea is to present the finished work in the form of a live or virtual performance, release, or presentation relevant to the work. The final work does not need to be presented in the lab, it can be at a festival or other venue of the artist’s choosing.
Please fill out the Google Form with your CV, portfolio, and project proposal no more than one page long. Any questions should be emailed to email@example.com.
We especially invite female and underrepresented applicants as well as applicants with an interest in spending time in Valencia or Spain to learn more about the culture. Deadline for application is April 15, 2023.
All applicants must be 18 years of age or older. All applicants must currently or must be a resident of an EU country during the time period. (This means students can apply as long as they are registered residents of an EU country.)
