Residency Programme since: 2010
Description of Organisation:

CAT is a shortcut for ‘Community Art Team’. The artist residency CAT Cologne was founded in 2010 as a non-profit organization. CAT Cologne supports international emerging artists working in the field of social practice and community engaged work. During a working grant to spend 1-3 months in Cologne, artists are invited to realize a process-oriented project that picks up issues that are specific to context and engages with local communities. Each project closes with a small publication and a final presentation. A number of social events such as Dinner Parties and Brunches are part of the framing program. The project’s task is to support the dialogue between diverse communities and engage them to their own constructive activism by providing clever and creative ways of participation.
