International Call For Ceramic Artist Residencies In Caldas Da Rainha

The city of Caldas da Rainha, part of the UNESCO Creative Cities network, is known for its rich activity in the areas of arts, design, crafts and innovation. As part of the commitment to developing and prize the ceramic arts, the Municipality of Caldas da Rainha, the Caldas da Rainha School of Arts and Design of the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria (ESAD.CR) and the Chair in Arts and Culture Management of the same Institute, are joining forces as co-organisers of this international call for artists to carry out an international artistic residency.

This artistic residency is aimed at international artists over the age of 18 with a proven track record in ceramics from other UNESCO Creative Cities outside Portugal. The residency will take place in the city of Caldas da Rainha, Portugal, with a specific call and its own selection process, between September and October 2024. It will last six weeks.

The successful applicant will be awarded a grant of €3,000.00, to be distributed in two phases. An amount of up to 1,500 EUR will be awarded as support for travelling expenses to and from Caldas da Rainha.

The resident artist will have access to accommodation and a studio at ESAD.CR, where they can develop projects and make small models.

During the residency period, moments will be scheduled to open the studio to the community, allowing for the sharing of processes and other interactions considered relevant during this experience, including studio visits and collaboration with local ceramic artist(s).

A jury, made up of a representative of the Municipality of Caldas da Rainha, a representative of ESAD.CR (who chairs) and an external expert, will be responsible for evaluating the proposals and selecting the resident artist.

Deadline: 28 July 2024
