CRIPTA747 Residency Programme supports the creative development of artists and researchers, from any field of contemporary culture, without geographical or age limits.
The Residence takes place at CRIPTA747’s venue located in the North of Turin. Following the city’s vocation for an artistic and cultural model focused on investigation and production processes, CRP provides artists with the opportunity to live and work in Turin for 6/8 weeks while developing individual projects and immersing themselves in the city’s creative environment.
The project aims at implementing and rethinking new strategies in research and artistic practices, refocusing the attention onto the production processes. Through a fellowship programme, it favours artists’ mobility, fosters exchange between local and foreign artists, and supports both material and conceptual production. The grant covers accomodation, production fees, a daily allowance and studio rent.
The international scientific board discusses the annual focus that orients the residence and makes the final selection from the proposals shortlisted by CRIPTA747’s team. At the end of the residence the fellows are invited to present the results of their researches through an open studio. The opening of places dedicated to artistic production offers to the public, as well as the artists involved, the unique opportunity to see and discuss issues and processes related to the research carried out during the residence.
