Ptarmigan project space in Tallinn, Estonia announces two separate open calls for two residency programmes in Estonia in 2013. Both programmes, funded by Kulturkontakt Nord, are open to applicants from the Nordic or Baltic countries, excluding Estonia (which means Latvia, Lithuania, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Greenland, Aland, Finland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway).
The Ptarmigan residency programme seeks proposals for a 2-month residency-based project in Tallinn. At Ptarmigan, the joy is in collaboration, being together, and expanding perspectives. We’re inclined towards ideas that offer some sort of educational component, and a chance for the public to be involved, while being experimental in nature. We seek residents to become an inherent but temporary part of our fluctuating team; we look to our residents to create and curate our programming.
Axis of Praxis is a shared residency programme between Ptarmigan and MoKS. The residency will offer the possibility to research and develop work in (and between) two distinctly different contexts within Estonia. MoKS is located in a village in rural south Estonia and Ptarmigan in the capital city of Tallinn. MoKS is an organisation run by artists and researchers, with experience in organising a diverse program of residencies, art symposia, projects, workshops and more. Ptarmigan is an event-driven organisation that focuses on trans-disciplinary projects, building participatory culture and social practices.
Residents will spend one month in Tallinn and one month in Mooste, with the residencies to occur between August and December 2013. Visit the Ptarmigan website for more information (including details about facilities and financial support) and to apply.
