Call for Participation, Join us in Lima!

Following up on the productive meetings and exchanges we held in Montreal with some of our colleagues from Latin America, we would like to invite you to join us in Lima, Peru for a meeting of residencies from the region. residencias_en_red [iberoamerica] – a new network of residencies in Latin America—will be holding a meeting between March 23rd and 27th of this year at which Res Artis has been invited to participate.

This is an excellent opportunity to exchange perspectives with our colleagues in this part of the world. It’s also an optimum opportunity for our members to participate in the continual development of our ResSupport program. An important part of this program is our ResSupport Fellowship, which provides opportunities for members of emerging residencies to spend time at a host institution learning about the field of residencies from the inside. As we announced in Montreal, our first fellowship is being sponsored by Akademie Schloss Solitude. We hope you will decide to join us by also sponsoring a fellowship.

Please let us know by February 8th if you would like to participate.

Goodbyes and new beginnings

A letter from Irene Saddal, Res Artis project manager

Do I have everything? What will the people be like? Will there be language and cultural issues? And perhaps most importantly what will the food be like?

These are questions one has when traveling to a different country, either going to a residency, or like me, organizing Res Artis meetings or attending other conferences and network events.

During the recent years I have worked with much enjoyment at the Res Artis office. It has been an exciting time, in which I learned a lot. This is largely because of all the people I met along the way who shared their experience and knowledge.

After working for almost four years at Res Artis, I feel that it is time for me to move on to other challenges. Starting February a new team, together with the board, will take over running the office and daily operations of Res Artis, and they will do this with much enthusiasm and drive, I am sure.

I’ve traveled the globe and had wonderful experiences representing Res Artis. It was an opportunity to meet old acquaintances and new friends. And I made great friends! I want to thank you all and wish you well.

My bags are almost packed. So I’ll be off to new adventures.

All the best and till we meet again,
Irene Saddal

Following a work meeting in September, PAiR was formed, continuing discussions at the recent Res Artis General meeting in Montreal. The objective – To strengthen existing and support the development of new residencies for performing artists.
