We have an open call for a 10 day Artist in Residence slot, which includes the four day workshop "The Camera as Political Apparatus" by Mathieu Asselin & Sergio Valenzuela Escobedo. The residency is open for application to all artists working with camera based art. 

It is possible to apply for only the residency (both selections are made in the application form). The aim of the residency is to welcome a talented artist to participate in the workshop with their project, and receive an additional four days to continue their work on the project with the access to a variety of production facilities and possibilities of one-to-one practical tutorials. We encourage artists to use the extended days to work on their project in a presentation mode (photobook dummy, exhibition sketches, extended portfolio etc).

The chosen artist will get all costs covered (workshop, travel, accommodation, food, materials),

Facilities available on site include a digital booth with editing/post production facilities, digital photographic printing, analogue darkroom, paper and negative scanning, small photo studio, book binding workshop.

The selected artist will receive materials of own choice up to 300 EUR (photo paper, materials for photobook dummy etc). This will be agreed after dialogue with the artist and NOUA.

The AiR is funded by Nordland County Council.
