I just found out about this and it sounds lovely, I’ve never been there but wanted to share it in case it is of interest.
DEADLINE: 9 DECEMBER 2011
3 months residency
Call for artists
APO33 a not-for-profit association/artists collective founded in 1997
in Nantes, France. APO33 research practices cross philosophy, poetry,
visual, architecture, sonic arts and anything else that may arrive
through collaborative working. APO33 projects often use networked and
physical spaces, develop tools (hardware/software) for its creative
projects and the FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software) community of
artists and programmers.
RESIDENCY: APO33 invites artists annually to develop new work in situ.
The residency usually entails two levels of development: a first
preparation stage (approximately 1 month) installation, performance …
or to realise a performance project or architectural construction and
a second stage where space is open to the public (visit, participate
and feedback). APO33 will provide technical assistance to artists and
expert assistance to those using digital media open to exploring FLOSS
software and programming tools. In addition artists are invited to
give a public talk around their practice and project at APO33. We will
give preference to those applicants with a strong desire to exchange
and collaborate with the APO33 project as a whole.
APO33 will provide accommodation, pay travel costs, sustenance and a
small production budget.
