About the programme
From 2023, KAOS and Albe vzw will organize during the summer a research residency for an individual artist within a living context for people with a mental disability and a psychiatric vulnerability. The invited artist is welcome in shared studios/ateliers, the living spaces and the garden of Albe in Kapellen. The studios/ateliers arise from a shared interest from the residents and the staff. There are: ceramics, welding, philosophy, woodworking, a weekly newspaper, the garden, dance, drawing and painting studio, music, textiles. New studios/ateliers can arise at any time from new encouters.
We offer one two-month residency in 2023 with overnight stay at the green domain of Albe.
The residency is open to individual artists who may or may not have a psychiatric vulnerability themselves. We ask candidates to motivate why they consider a residency important in this context and what the link is to their own work. The selection of artistic proposals is done by the artistic team of KAOS and the residents/ staff from Albe vzw.
Remuneration is provided (a half-time employment (mentor) contract for the months of July and August), an expense allowance for transport and a small production budget.
With support of the Commune of Kapellen.
