“Danish funding for international exchange within the visual art - tools and strategies” 
The lecture will give an introduction to public funding for the visual arts in Denmark and how it is organized through The Danish Arts Agency, the Danish Arts Foundation and the Danish Arts Council. The focus will be on international exchange programmes: how do we run our residencies and what are the possibilities for foreign artists to work, exhibit and exchange with Danish artists or in Denmark. One of the most succesful tools for furthering exchange has been our DIVA residency programme, which I will introduce. But we also work with a visitor programme as well as a research programme. I will also introduce our user-based archive of contemporary Danish visual artists. The archive contains curriculums, images, videos, sound works and texts on and by the artists and it is one of the tools we use to make Danish art visible internationally. The topic of promotion will also be discussed and how we as a national funding institution see our mission: what are our tools and strategies - and what works and what are we re-defining.

“Building strong communities with the arts” 
Founded in 1985, the mission of the Santa Fe Art Institute is the exploration of the intersection of contemporary art forms and society: using the arts to empower voices,  support creativity, and enable access to art and culture through residencies, community based programs within the city and beyond, education in the schools, exhibitions, public lectures and workshops. Located in a vibrant multicultural region with a deep history of Native American and Hispanic arts and culture, New Mexico is also home to diverse immigrant communities.  We provide arts programming across the economic spectrum.
SFAI is a unique arts center that promotes, in our local community and in the world, the concept of art on the highest level as a positive social and cultural force that facilitates dialogue, bridges perspectives, and evokes the vision of a better future.


Tere Badia, Technische Leiterin, Hangar, Barcelona, Spanien

It is a fact that contemporary art practices have a wide range of shapes: those directly designed from the formal tradition, those who understand art as pure knowledge production, those derived from the experimentation of new working methods or processes in a collective or a network, or those that are arising from the prototype production more than from the single object. What from some cultural agents is seen as a dangerous way to cross the boundaries of artistic disciplines and sectors, for others it means the consolidation of a paradigmatical shift in artistic production and, therefore, the need to generate other types of support structures, understanding that such practices often work with multiple linkages.
Hangar is an artists-run centre for experimentation and production in visual arts which works since its very begining under this conception of assisting a broad variety of art practices. 
Hangar is an open space which aims are to offer all artists access to production resources, in particular artists in the early stages of their careers. Another of Hangar’s main aims is to provide a networked context for artistic research and to offer professional services and assistance in arts production through the ongoing development of tools that improve production possibilities of arts projects.

“Artist residencies and grant opportunities in New York City and beyond” 
There are manifold possibilities for residencies in New York and vicinity. German and Germany based artists are often supported by their respective counties who make stipends available to spend longer stretches of time abroad. While there are models for standalone residency projects (Hessische Kulturstiftung) where visiting artists occupy a live/work loft downtown many other counties collaborate with institutions such as ISCP that offer studio space in the city. All these residencies vary in terms of production support and the network they provide to visiting artists. This presentation will introduce several models for artist residencies and includes an introduction to the major institutions in the city.
