Ontwikkel je podium projectidee en artistieke visie via drie betaalde internationale residenties

Kunstenplaats Vonk

Moving Identities is an inter­na­tion­al res­i­den­cy pro­gram in which 5 dif­fer­ent art venues exchange res­i­den­cies over a three-year peri­od with the idea of cre­at­ing a more sus­tain­able, diverse and inclu­sive plat­form for European per­for­mance and trans­dis­ci­pli­nary artists. The goal is to encour­age cross-cul­tur­al col­lab­o­ra­tion and open a new inter­na­tion­al net­work for the par­tic­i­pat­ing artists.

All venue part­ners are UP (Copenhagen), Nau Ivanow (Barcelona), Hellerau (Dresden), Davvi (Hammerfest) and Kunstplaats Vonk (Hasselt). The pro­gram is sup­port­ed by Creative Europe.
