Over 70 artists has applyied to Artists Residency in Brno held in cooperation with Meeting Brno
Over seventy foreign artists submitted an application for the Artist-in-Residence program within the 2017 Meeting Brno festival, which we opened in collaboration with the Dům umění města Brna visual arts centre.
Starting this year, every edition of the Meeting Brno festival will host three resident artists – a writer, a visual artist and an actor – who will contribute with their fresh perspectives and by artistic means to the discussion of the main topic of the respective year of the festival. Because in 2017 the Meeting Brno festival is the partner of the Czech-German Spring project, this year we are inviting artists from Germany. Their stay is being prepared together with Dům umění města Brna and the Czech-German Future Fund.
By the application deadline in mid-January over seventy artists had submitted their visual arts projects or texts. By the end of January a jury which consists of representatives of the Meeting Brno festival, Dům umění města Brna, the Goethe Institut in Prague and our foreign partners Adalbert Stifter Verein and Ackermann-Gemeinde will chose the residents from among the applicants.
We are looking forward to their contributions to the cultural scene of Brno, and you surely can too!
