Within the framework of an international project supported by the Creative Europe programme, we would like to invite 12 professionals working in the field of contemporary visual arts to spend quality time in conditions that allow them to develop their practice.
The goal of this call is to support art practices that are often the result of a process of research or that lack institutional or commercial support. These residency opportunities should be seen as a space where artists are being provided with favorable conditions (accommodation, studio, and fees) in unstable times. However, there is no requirement to produce new work during the residency. This call is also aimed at helping artists to connect with new audiences and local art scenes.
We see the emergency residencies as a response to the current situation in Ukraine.
This project has been designed to support artistic communities from all over the country as well as those Ukrainian or previously Ukrainian-based practitioners that have had to relocate to other locations due to the Russian invasion.
Ukrainian artists, curators, critics, mediators, educators, researchers, etc. or people of other nationalities based in Ukraine before the 24th of February 2022.
Professionals with a sustained practice in the field of contemporary visual arts or related areas.
There is no age limit.

Planta Alta is an artistic and research residency space curated and managed by the cultural association hablarenarte. Located in the city of Madrid, it is a project permeable to independent initiatives, cultural institutions, and artistic agents, both local and foreign ones. Starting from specific working interests, experiences, and possibilities, Planta Alta proposes a transdisciplinary program that goes beyond artistic practice, building relations, and affective networks.
Current lines of work:
hablarenarte understands itself as an in/inter/dependent cultural platform, inserted in a broader ecosystem in which small, medium and large-scale agents operate, and where an open, careful, permeable, recursive and redistributive institutionality is at play. In the face of the genealogies of neoliberalism and its vision of society as a hierarchical knot of contracts, hablarenarte seeks to rethink the role of (cultural) institutions in society, practicing feminist and associative frameworks and promoting equalitarian social relations.
Art and education
hablarenarte works on the intersection of art and education as a suitable space for meeting, learning, criticizing and enjoying. In the areas of formal education as well as in non-formal settings, artistic education and cultural mediation make art a common resource through which to reinvent desirable ways of living and world creating.
Care and ways of living
Taking as a starting point the deep multi-facet crisis surrounding us, hablarenarte seeks to build through its doing, its projects and residences, alternative modes of interacting based on common support structures and sustainable ways of working that put life in the center.
Old age and childhood
Resisting the dominant productivist and adult-centric paradigm, hablarenarte considers the urgent need to defend inclusive societies capable of relating, listening and empowering varied subjectivities, in particular those of children and old people. Cultural spaces must, in our opinion, be privileged laboratories in which to test forms of intergenerational justice.
