Digestible Art – Call for Artists
2016 is a special thematic edition of Akrai Residency. We accept submissions with project proposals that reflect upon the theme of Arte Digeribile (digestible art) in any possible interpretation of the sentence and in any disciplines for which we offer residencies.
Deadline: 3 Jan 2016
Application for the 2016 Edition is open to the following disciplines: creative writing, culinary art, dance, music, theater, and visual art. Interested individuals and teams must have been professionally active in their fields for at least the past three years as demonstrated in their resumes. We welcome applications from any country in the world. We encourage interdisciplinary team applications.
An Akrai Residency Fellowship comprises a travel grant, private accommodation in shared apartments in the historical center of the town, use of a private studio in a historical building, communal dinner, and assistance for projects to be developed during the residency that will be presented to the public on Saturday September 3, 2016 in Palazzolo Acreide. Invited participants are expected to be in residency for the entire duration of the program.
Akrai is an international multidisciplinary arts residency program on the island of Sicily, with a strong emphasis on interaction with the local community and collaboration among peers. Akrai’s mission is to nurture the arts by offering creative individuals an opportunity to develop new work in a stimulating environment. Akrai seeks to offer a platform for a better understanding of the rich and complex heritage of Sicily—with its layers of history and tradition and multifaceted contemporary issues—by facilitating a cultural exchange between the local community and artists from across the world. At the local level, Akrai aims to forge new connections between the surrounding community and the contemporary arts, encouraging community members to become active participants in the cultural dialogue.
