Open Call: Onassis AiR (Artists-in-Residence) 2019/20 (Greece)


What if, artists, curators and other creators, could take their time to reconsider their practice without the constraints of the production frenzy?

Τhe Onassis AiR (Artists-in-Residence) is a year-round artistic research and residency programme born in 2019, which offers time. Time to learn, to change, or go deeper by doing and undoing or non-doing. Without striving for the production of a final outcome/ creation, but rather focusing on the creative process itself.

During your time through the programme and located in the urban centre of Athens, all participants can interact with each other as peers. Regardless of age or how accomplished they are. With a mission to support the artistic process, towards a less product-obsessed arts ecosystem, artists meet as part of a community who works, thinks, and eats together, without striving for the next project, the next premiere, the next opening. A community that has the ability to pause, to rethink how each one of us functions and creates.

Onassis AiR will support: Greek and international artists, curators, and thinkers working in time-based artistic disciplines, who wish to deepen, reconsider, or transform their practice or methodology, without the expectations and constraints of a production.

Onassis AiR has been designed and will be run by Ash Bulayev (director of Onassis AiR) and Nefeli Myrodia (creative producer & dramaturg of Onassis AiR).

There are different programmes’ strands that you need to explore before applying: Onassis AiR Critical Practices Programme; Onassis AiR (inter)national Curator & Artist-in-Residence Programme; Onassis AiR Exchange Residencies; Onassis AiR Emergency Fellowships etc.

Support and financial conditions depend on the project. Travels can be funded. Conditions apply.

Deadline: 26 November 2018
