New Residency Typologies

With the rapid expansion and changes in the arts residencies field, how can we categorise arts residency programs today? What are the latest trends? Where do we see the field heading in the future?

Beside their extreme diversity artists residencies share many experiences and fundamental values. For his keynote Jean-Baptiste Joly used the excellent database of Res Artis as source of information. He will suggest a possible typology for depicting the different profiles. He will give an insight in the current tendencies of the general movement of artists residencies.

Does that sound like something you would like to spend some time discussing under the expertise of Joly and Lovecchio this year? Then join us in Kyoto in February!
