Creative Industry Košice & K.A.I.R. Košice Artists in Residence announce an open call for media artists from UNESCO Creative Cities.
After its successful pilot year, here comes a follow-up! Košice – UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts offers media artists a two-month stay in Košice in autumn 2020. The residency is organized by the NGO Creative Industry Košice – a focal point of UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts, and by K.A.I.R. Košice Artist in Residence.
This specific residency seeks to create space for a media artist from one of the UNESCO Creative Cities to develop his/her own artistic project. The residency is an opportunity to create a new project or to continue work on something in development by shifting its perspective and embracing the open call’s topic.
The open call is limited to the artists who are either born, live or work in any of UNESCO Creative City (includes Dublin and Galway).
