Reality Research Center: Call for Applications

The Residency Program for Impossible Performance is a part of Reality Research Center programme in 2019–2021. Each year an artist will be selected through an open application process. The Artist in Residency will get the resources to produce an “impossible”, unprecedented performance for ANTI – Contemporary Art Festivalin Kuopio, Finland, in September. The program is for artists at the beginning of their career or people with an otherwise utopian agenda who work in performing arts in Finland and who have unfulfilled performative dreams.

The application period for the 2020 residency is open from Nov 21 to Dec 20, 2019. Read what’s on offer plus further instructions from Reality Research Center webpage and submit!
