INTERNATIONAL OPEN CALL
FOR ART RESIDENCES
FACTORY launches its international open call to invite artists, cultural, social and academic agents to reside for a specific time.
Targets: Artists, social and cultural agents, academics and researchers, linked to contemporary creation, with an experience of at least 5 years.
Location: Art Residency building at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, Amman, Jordan.
WHAT IS JARS PROGRAM?
Through Factory under the umbrella of the JNGFA we provide the space and time for reflection, research, presentation and / or production to the selected residents. The program covers the stay and the work space in the art residency building of the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts. The residency building, a few meters from the JNGFA, facilitates the interaction of the residents with the gallery itself, and provides logistical and material support to the residents. JARS allows people to explore their practice within the framework of another community; meeting new people, using new materials, experiencing life in a new location. JARS emphasizes the importance of interdisciplinary cultural exchange and immersion in another culture. Therefore, art projects that involve the local community through presentations, workshops or collaborations will be especially valued. The JNGFA is committed to exhibit the residents’ works, as well as helping them to carry out scheduled meetings and workshops to disseminate their research.
