IN EX(ILE) LAB is a project that will support artists, who have recently relocated and are looking to build a career in their host country, by providing opportunities to create a performance, build a professional network, be artistically advised by established artists based in Europe and reach new audiences within the European space. If you are an artist in exile*, currently based in Cyprus, France, Italy or Portugal and you have (or would like to develop) an artistic practice that relates to performance we want to hear from you.
*artists living in a foreign country who cannot return to their home country due to war, racial, ethnic, sexual and gender discrimination, or religious, economic and political marginalisation.
Selected artists will be proposed one of two paths.
PATH 1: you will be traveling in the European Union. This includes:
A production stipend for the development of a performance – 4000 € per project, to a total 4 artists/project.
Cross-country artistic residencies for the development of a performance – 1 residency in the country where the artist is based and 1 residency in one of the participating countries – each residency will last 2 weeks and will include: accommodation, a dance/theatre or production studio, travel costs, per diems and an artist fee.
A yearlong mentorship programme, an intensive masterclass programme in Paris, training sessions for professional development – all including accommodation, travel costs and per diems (when the activities take place in a city different to that where the artist is based).
PATH 2 – you won’t need to travel abroad; artists will take part in the project in the country they are currently living in. This includes:
A production stipend for the development of performances – 4000€ per project, to a total 8 artists/projects – a yearlong mentorship programme; Training sessions for professional development – including accommodation, travel costs and per diems (when the activities take place in a city different to the one where the artist is based).
All activities take place over the period from May 2023 to July 2024.
