Bòlit, Centre d?Art Contemporani. Girona is launching Bòlit Residència Girona Creativa, a programme of creative residencies designed to promote national and international artistic exchanges. The project has two aims: to welcome new artists and their work to Girona, and to foster the international mobility of local artists.
The programme involves preparing a space for the residency and calling for applicants to occupy it, with options for organising exchanges with other centres in Catalonia, Spain and abroad that also offer artistic residencies.
The space is designed to accommodate artists, curators and other professionals working with the visual arts, enabling them to explore their ideas in greater depth and providing support for the creative and/or research process, while making their work known to a wider public through participation in the B_Ñ¢lit programme or exhibitions in the city’s municipal and civic spaces.
This space will allow artists and creative or cultural professionals to become involved in the city’s social and cultural life, thereby enriching their work and experience. It will also help local artists gain international experience and recognition by giving them access to residencies in other countries.
The programme will not just provide premises for artists to work in. It will also be an enriching experience for both the artist and the host city, based on a dialogue between them.
The Bòlit Centre is also interested in establishing cooperation agreements with public and private arts centres in Spain and abroad in order to organise artistic exchanges, offering residencies for their artists in Girona while helping local artists to gain international experience and recognition.
Bòlit. Contemporary Art Centre. Girona is a municipal facility whose mission is to put together programmes to research, produce and exhibit contemporary art projects by national and international creators and professionals from other fields of knowledge with strong ties to the local context.
An active, dynamic player, Bòlit organises programmes of exhibitions and related integrated activities, such as workshops, series of talks, urban actions, series of screenings, specific proposals and works in progress designed to get civil society involved right from the start.
Bòlit works closely on the ground with initiatives and programmes carried out in the province of Girona to promote collaboration and project exchange. Creative production at the centre is linked to other contexts and international research and creation spaces.
