Call for Applications

5 Open Calls for Residencies in South America

Coincidencia is happy to announce five Residency Open Calls for Swiss artists in South America. Located in different countries and contexts, from remote areas of the continent to the densest urban confluences, these five art spaces share today a common wish to reflect on society, on territorial issues and on nature through diverse artistic practices.

The participating residencies are: CAB (Patagonia – Chile), CAPACETE (Rio de Janeiro – Brazil), cheLA (Buenos Aires – Argentina), JUNTA (Teresina – Brazil) and lugar a dudas (Cali – Colombia). Each one has its own format and focus on art disciplines. CAB, Capacete and Lugar a Dudas are focused on the broad field of Visual Arts, CheLA has an interdisciplinary approach and JUNTA is dedicated to dance and performance.

All five residencies provide travel expenses, accommodation and per diem.

Due to the political situation in Chile the deadline for applications to the CAB Residency is postponed to the 11 November.

All other OPEN CALLs end on the 28 October 2019.

Get to know all of them and apply!
