Generally periods of three or four weeks are offered. In particular cases a longer or shorter period is negotiable; however the residency should not be longer than 3 months and shorter than 1 week.
TRACTOR provides professional development opportunities for artists and does not involve gallery-based or other set outcomes or objectives. Artists who stay three or more weeks are offered the opportunity to show their work within a project-exhibition at the end of the residency.
There is also a possibility to show/share work threw open studio events, presentations, readings, screening, workshops, lectures… you name it.
However, each residency at D’CLINIC starts with a “meet the new artist” event, where you’ll be asked to share your artistic experiences with the peer group and other interested crowd.
