What is it about?
Nova Iskra announces this year’s open call for Designer in Residence program – a month-long residential stay in France, aimed to designers, artists and other authors active in fields of digital arts and interaction design.
The exchange of authors takes place through the platform CREATE IN RESIDENCE, a multidisciplinary international program that was initiated in 2014. by the Swedish Institute in a collaboration with Nova Iskra, Krokodil Festival and a range of partner organizations. This year, the partners are the largest Swedish organization dedicated to support artistic production IASPIS, the French Institute and Goethe Institute in Serbia, Ministry of Culture and Media of the Republic of Serbia, AMI / Dynamo and LFO/ZINC maker lab from Marseille, but also EUNIC Network in Serbia.
The residential stay of the Serbian author in Marseille will be realized in November 2018. At the same time, Nova Iskra will host one designer from Sweden and one from France, after hosting André Pahl from Germany in May.
Who is it for?
A month-long residential stay in France is aimed to designers, artists and other authors active in fields of digital arts and interaction design.
What's in it for me?
During last years, Designer in Residence platform expanded its collaboration besides Sweden, so this year Nova Iskra is announcing the open call for a one-month stay in Marseille for Serbian authors. This year’s stay in Marseille is focused on field of digital arts and interaction design. The residential author from Serbia, from November 7th to December 7th, is supported by two local organizations, both located in the creative center Friche la Belle de Mai – DYNAMO incubator i LFO/ZINC makerspace.
Furthermore, residential author from Serbia will have an opportunity to present him or herself as a part of Chroniques Biennial (www.chronique-s.org), which is going to take place in Marseille and Aix-en Provence during November. Exhibitions, audio-visual performances, public space installations, conference programs and an accompanying fair will be presented within the program.
Interdisciplinary work, carefully planning of each of residential stays according to the needs of their users and the specifics of the host organizations are the main features of the program. Since 2014, more than 35 authors participated in the program.
How will I learn
The concept of the residential program is still “open-end”, which means that participants are not expected to realize their idea completely or even finish it during the stay, but to seize the time in residence for developing projects from their field.
Travel and accommodation costs, as well as a full scholarship are covered, while the authors will be required to engage in programs of local organizations during their stay, through public presentations, participations and organization of workshops, and also participation in the Chroniques Biennial.
