OFFCITY AiR Call for Residency Programme for Artists, Architects and Theorists

Open call for artists, architects, theorists or creative and interdisciplinary collectives.

Through the residency program, we want to support at least 3 artists, architects, theorists or creative and interdisciplinary collectives (the number of supported projects will depend on the complexity of the project and our financial possibilities).

The participants of the residency program are invited to explore the city and articulate its architecture from various positions. We are thus following up on a series of residencies, during which we focused on the topic of reading public space in 2022 and 2023. Together with the participants in OFFCITY AiR, we examined the public space of Pardubice from the point of view of visual smog, graffiti, personal stories, or timetables and trajectories of the city’s public transport; we used the language of contemporary visual and performance art as well as theory.

Selected projects will receive a fee depending on the length of stay (1,200 CZK/person/day), a residential studio for 1-3 weeks (the stay can be divided) and – if necessary – further consultations, networking with local cultural projects, organisations and artists.


OFFCITY is an independent platform based in Pardubice, Czech Republic. It works with a theme of a city as a structure and a living organism, it explores different views of the city, it introduces to the public various forms of artistic and architectural expression, it shows them how to perceive art and culture as an integral part of our natural and social environment.

OFFCITY organises lectures, workshops, art events in public space, etc. It opens up and keeps a public dialogue on issues concerning arts in public space, architecture, urban space etc. We have been organising a creative residency program since 2016. Our aim is to open interdisciplinary, interregional and international cooperation.
