Res Artis : A Worldwide Network of Arts Residencies

We are grateful to be part of the Res Artis network. They have been around since 1993 and have assisted the spread of the concept of open networking and visibility of establishments and organisations like us here at Studio Faire.

Their core principles are the same as ours :

Arts Residencies are:
• Organised and sufficient time, space and resources
• Enablers of the creative process
• Reflective of their lexical meaning as ‘an act of dwelling in a place’
• Based on clear mutual responsibility, experimentation, exchange and dialogue
• Engaged with context by connecting the local to the global
• Crucial to the arts ecosystem
• Bridging mechanisms between different arts disciplines and non-arts sectors
• Tools for inter-cultural understanding and capacity building
• Essential professional and personal development opportunities
• Catalysts for global mobility
• Encounters with the unknown
• Profile-raising with immediate and ongoing artistic, social and economic impact
• Important contributors to cultural policy and cultural diplomacy

Res Artis: “Worldwide Network of Arts Residencies is a 26 year old network of arts residency operators from around the globe. Our network comprises more than 700 vetted members in over 85 countries. We operate from three international offices: the Netherlands, Australia and Iran. We are the worldwide professional body for the field, ensuring sustainability and growth by providing capacity building tools for our members through face-to-face meetings and digital platforms. We aim to support and connect residencies, engage and advocate the importance of residencies in today’s society, and provide recommendations towards cultural mobility research and policy.”
