open call: travers artistic residency in denmark. d/l 28 February 2019

For all professional artists working in the fields of music, literature, architecture, sound and visual arts, film and performing arts! From February 1-28, 2019 we will be accepting applications for the second round of TRAVERS, which will take place at Dokk1 in Aarhus, Denmark from May 6-11, 2019.

TRAVERS is a laboratory for artistic practice and theory, and a journey of exploration into cross-artform creation. Three separate ‘camps’ provide professional artists, scolars and other people involved in the the arts, with an opportunity to come together and take part in an event that crosses disciplines and borders. TRAVERS is a journey into the participants’ own practice: an encounter with their strengths and weaknesses. In TRAVERS, the journey is the goal, and that journey features a cornucopia of meetings, surprises, shocks and challenges. With luck we will lose our way and discover new travelling companions in a totally unfamiliar landscape.

You can apply personally or as an artistic team. If you apply as a team, all team members must log in and make individual applications.
TRAVERS will contribute to travel expenses for anyone who is not based in Aarhus. However, your accommodation during your participation in the camp will be your own responsibility.
We expect you to attend every day of the camp.
