Baltan Laboratories and Trudo jointly offer a 6-week residency period, on the future of housing and urban development. Deadline for submitting your proposal is September 20th, 2019. Notification for acceptance will be sent before September 29th, 2019.
This shared residency offers highly promising creatives the opportunity to conduct artistic and technical research and to develop personal work, which must lead to experiment and innovation around urban development and focus on the needs of the local community. An important guiding principle for this residency is to investigate how citizens, institutions, organizations and entrepreneurs can take more initiative and ownership when it comes to their immediate environment.
Trudo and Baltan Laboratories have established this residency in order to stimulate crossovers and experimentation, as well as to initiate new collaborations. The program acts as a driver for talent development for professional creatives, with a focus on social issues and aims at artists, designers and creative entrepreneurs, working at the intersection of social- and urban design, community art and architecture.
Baltan and Trudo invite creatives, artists and designers, to think about this area as a driver of creativity and innovation in the city, and to test their ideas within the professional field of social housing. During the residency, artists and designers are given the opportunity to propose and develop ideas based on the following themes:
• The Rise of the Urban Commons
• The Future of Living & Social Housing
• The Future of Strijp-S
Who should apply?
International creative professionals working in the field of social design, community art, urban development, urban design and architecture are invited to apply. Applications may contain a concrete project proposal or a research trajectory. A thorough description of plans, process and research that the applicant wants to execute during the residency period is requested.
The resident is requested to give 1 or 2 presentations about the research and to complete the residency period with a presentation/exhibition in which the process and the results are being presented. The Baltan exhibition space in Natlab, former Philips Physics Laboratory, will be available for this.
