In 2021, for the first time, the residency will be designed on a digital platform, thus ensuring that the residency will take place notwithstanding the prevailing COVID situation. The digital platform aims to reflect all the elements that gives the participants the feel of actually experiencing the city of Kolkata.
The opportunity will enable one artist from each hosting country (Germany, France, United Kingdom, Italy and India) practicing different art forms to work and explore Kolkata together. The artists will work and explore the city together for eight weeks. This is made possible through a digital platform which is being specially designed for the residency. For British Council the collaboration links to its creative economy pillar and festivals programme.
The aim of this residency is to enable the artist residents create an individual or collective art project will be presented at the end of the residency. In addition to pursuing their own project, the residents are also expected to get involved with the local arts and culture scene, to enable a healthy mutual exchange of creative ideas between the city's artist community and the artists in residence. All the relevant resources will be provided on the digital platform.
The Indo-European Residency Project Kolkata 2021 is supported by EUNIC – European Union National Institutes for Culture which is Europe’s network of national cultural institutes and organizations active in cultural relations.
