Yellow Brick now offers opportunities for 9 to 12 weeks residencies in its premises.
Reflecting on the residency’s legacy, which has been running since December 2016 and is co-authored with more than 40 artists, Yellow Brick announces an OPEN CALL offering artists of all disciplines to reside and work in Nea Ionia for 9 to 12 weeks.*
Acknowledging the valuable prospects of an extended period of research and with much consideration to past residents’ feedback, YB has taken the decision to give primary focus to applications for a prolonged stay (STEP) – thus allowing ample time for meaningful interactions with the area, Athens at large, YB’s team and local network and work towards a public event.
The current OPEN CALL predominantly addresses artists with a current practice or a desire to explore one or more of the following themes: relations between body and community, healing and rest, politics of labor, exhaustion, traditional women’s knowledge, migration – displacement, language and histories between borders.
The deadline for the first round of applications is 10th March 2024. We look forward to hearing from you!
* Yellow Brick will continue to welcome applications for a shorter period but reviewed as secondary and applicable to dates (weeks) that might come available.
