Call for residency participants

A three weeks residency program for Romanian and international artists is waiting for you to apply! If you want to create collaborative and participatory works, this is the chance. From visual arts to performance, from theater to dance, music, painting, sculpture, photo, video, installation and literature or more experimental forms, every means of expression is welcome. The residencies will take place between 16th of August and 9th of September.

in : v z b l festival will take place on 6th, 7th & 8th of September in Timișoara, Romania. The core values of our festival are solidarity, dialogue, respect and dignity. We expect artists to share these values and take them into consideration in creating their works. in : v z b l festival is meant to be a platform for expression for people from different vulnerable groups to become more visible. Romanian artists that apply should have a personal connection with Timișoara that they can justify in the motivation letter. This can be anything from having lived or worked here or the first kiss at age 15, we are looking for Romanian artists that can have a personal subjective view of the city.

Artists will work together in teams made out of 1 Romanian artist, 1 international artist and 1 crafts person. By crafts persons we mean active creative entrepreneurs that often cross the line between art and craft and are active in Timișoara’s creative industries market. The teams will have our full support to connect with the local community and create a work in public space during the festival.
