REJMYRE ART LAB’S Center for Peripheral Studies

PRODUCTION RESIDENCY OPEN CALL

on the theme of ‘Refuging’

How does a factory town that produces glass, become a factory town that produces refuge?

Rejmyre Art Lab invites artists from fine, performing and craft backgrounds, who are engaged with conceptual and contextual practices, to participate in a eight-week production-based residency in Rejmyre, Sweden, in the spring and summer of 2023. Rejmyre has, since 2009, played host to a long-term, place-based, artistic research project with a focus on site responsive practice.

Place: Rejmyre, Östergötland, Sweden

Application period: The application is open between January 16-31, 2023. 

Notifications of acceptance: notifications will be sent out by February 24, 2023. More information about the Production Residency can be found at https://www.rejmyreartlab.org/residency/production-residency-open-call
