ABOUT RESIDENCY TO GO
Residency To Go is not a traditional residency, but a programme that takes place in the artist’s own studio. This means that the programme is open only to artists who already have their own studio, but who would benefit from feedback and welcome support in the development of their practice as artists.
An important part of Residency To Go is the development of networks and discussion/feedback sessions with curators and mentors based in Denmark and Skåne County (Sweden). Art Hub’s team of directors will also provide feedback, and artists will be given an advisory course with an art consultant.
The advisory course will be based on the artist’s current practice, featuring both individual conversations and joint workshops with the other artists in the Residency To Go programme. The workshop courses will be based on topics such as sustainable practice, sales and marketing, communication, interpretation/audience engagement, goals and the development of self-management competencies.
As part of the process, artists will have the option of organising an ‘open studio’, and of collaborating with the 2023 Roskilde Festival. There will also be a programme of visits to a number of selected institutions throughout Denmark.
Previously titled ‘Atelier TO GO’ and organised by the Bikuben Foundation, Residency To Go has previously been organised by the Bikuben Foundation, but is now a part of Art Hub.
