The VSMAlab residency program provides academics, artists, curators and other professionals access to facilities and equipment for the purposes of developing and implementing a research or artistic project.
The Art & Research Residency was launched in 2012 and it aims at encouraging:
– research related to museums, visitor studies, cultural policy, cultural sustainability, photography and theory, visual sociology/ anthropology and other related fields;
– the production of art projects and more specifically film and photographic projects;
– projects which combine research with art practice
The Art & Research Residency can take place at any time of the year and its duration can vary from 2 weeks to 3 months depending on the project and the availability of space and equipment. The Residency does not cover any costs for accommodation or traveling expenses but can make arrangements with the University to rent student accommodation nearby at a lower cost.
