Het Entrepot (Belgium)- Calls for residencies C.T.C. (visual arts)
Het Entrepot in the sea harbor of Bruges (Belgium) is a creative art lab for young artists who need time and space to create and to experiment. Everyone working with photography, video, music, theatre, dance, performance, graphic design and other creative media, is welcome.
‘Gone West’ is a project organised by the province of West-Flanders (Belgium) dedicated to the commemoration of The Great War (1914-1918). Het Entrepot is launching the residential program ‘Cut The Crap (C.T.C.)’ for artists from around the world working in the field of visual arts. This program will last five years. Every year two artists will be invited to come and work in Het Entrepot. During two months artists will have the chance to research, develop and create an art project. This project will be presented at Het Entrepot and might include an intervention in the public/urban space which will relate to the subject of the residency in response to the environment and to the history of the region.
Het Entrepot is looking for projects that are clearly developed based on a social engagement or which are conceived from the necessity to respond to a particular problem or conflict (in relation to ‘History’). The residential program invites the following contemporary disciplines: painting, drawing, sculptures, photography, video, multimedia, mixed media, performance and audio art.
