About Our Residencies
Our residencies are arranged, planned and carried out in collaboration with local - and likeminded - hosting institutions*. CAES' residency program can be brought to any urban or rural community in the world and its aim is to explore all four focus ideas of what we understand as a sustainable art studio: process development; community involvement; sustainable development and experimentation.
The program creates unique solutions for unique challenges, yielding opportunities for developing place-specific sustainable art studio practices that our participants can later further develop in autonomy.
(*) a hosting institution is an entity or individual with whom we coordinate logistic, technical and artistic/educational details in relation to work conditions and the space in which our program will be carried out. These institutions are usually – but not limited to – art residencies, art centers, schools, orphanages, rural communities, etc. Communication with the contact person at each hosting institution is key to the success of these programs. The contact person is responsible for the recruitment of participants, scheduling workshop sessions, securing a suitable workspace and keeping a reliable channel of communication with CAES prior to our arrival and during our stay.
