New website section! External Meetings Reports

Increasingly frequently, Res Artis is invited to participate in collaborative meetings to provide its voice in support of the development of the residency field.  The meetings are generally held by Res Artis members or organisations like Ministries of culture, Art Councils, NGO’s, Universities or Museums. These gatherings enable Res Artis to represent its membership and develop a talk, workshop or discussion panel on a residency-related topic.

Res Artis wants to share the results of these encounters with you. that’s why we have created this new External Meetings section of the website. It will provide a platform for sharing short reports, documentation and the outcomes of what we are achieving as an organisation. We encourage you to read what has been going on and invite you to also dive into the What are we working on? section and anticipate where we’ll be next, in the hope that we can meet you in person and help develop the field together!
