Open Call for Artists and Researchers
Agosto Foundation Artist-In-Residence Program
Prague, Czech Republic

*Deadline:* August 15, 2018 for residencies taking place between January 1,
2019 and December 31, 2019
*Conditions: *Artists and researchers receive a private apartment in the
center of Prague for a period of up to 3 months, a grant of approximately
€750 (per month, in Czech currency) to support the proposed project, travel
expenses (limited) and assistance in its implementation.

*Eligibility:* The Foundation encourages and welcomes the participation of
artists, curators and researchers from various backgrounds to apply for the
support of projects which are in line with the mission of the Agosto
Foundation and the declared objectives of the residency.

Through the Agosto Residency Program, the Foundation seeks to create a
context, not restricted solely to artists, for those active in the cultural
realm to step outside of their usual frames of reference and to reach
across disciplines. The aim is to facilitate, support and maintain a
general platform for engaged, creative, adisciplinary (not oriented toward
any one discipline) and exploratory projects. A special focus will be on
artists and specialists whose work has crossed (or implies the crossing of)
the boundaries of their fields (visual art, new media, sound art,
experimental music, literature, etc.) Other interdisciplinary
collaborations or cooperations are welcome to apply, as well.
*How to Apply:*
The completed application, written in English, will include:

   - A project proposal from the artist (250 words maximum).
   - Artist contact information and CV.
   - Documentation of previous projects.
   - A motivation letter explaining the context and framework of the
   proposed project and specification of any operational or financial
   requests. It should also indicate the preferred time of the residency and
   its expected outcome (500 words maximum).

All completed applications must be submitted by e-mail to  email addresses:
info[at]agosto-foundation.org <info at agosto-foundation.org>
michal.kindernay <michal.kindernay at agosto-foundation.org>[at]
<info at agosto-foundation.org>agosto-foundation.org
<michal.kindernay at agosto-foundation.org>
with “Agosto residency program" and your name in the email subject.

*Review Criteria: *Applications will be evaluated by the foundation board
created on the basis of the nature of the projects with respect to the
following criteria:

• The degree to which the proposed project falls in line with the mission
of the Agosto Foundation and the declared objectives of the residency
• The artist’s proficiency and level of excellence
• The potential benefit to the artist of a residency and of his or her
interaction with the community in the Czech Republic
• The potential of the project to create a dialogue or foster the
interactions of audiences with the work
• If the artist is not Czech, the artist’s interest in bringing the
benefits of the exchange to his or her home country.
