Antverp's AiR Antwerpen and Prague's MeetFactory launched the open call for artists in residence. Czech Centre Brussels as a partner of the programme brought Robert Šalanda or Tomáš Kajánek recently to Belgium. Dealine: 31st May.

AIR Antwerpen and MeetFactory Prague organize for the third time an exchange program between both cities for visual artists from the Czech Republic and Belgium. It offers a double residency for a visual artist based in Belgium and an visual artist based in the Czech Republic with a site-specific art practice. Previous artists in residence were Alice De Mont, Tomas Kajanek, Robert Salanda and Stijn Van Dorpe.

This residency opportunity offers a residency period of six months: three months in AIR Antwerpen (February-March 2018) and three months in Prague (April - June 2018). The residency is not limited thematically or by age. It is intended to increase mutual perception between Belgian and Czech cultural scenes and initiate collaboration between two artists selected specifically in regard to potential mutual enrichment of their individual practices.
