PRAKSIS and Oslo Kunstforening are pleased to announce the open call for Carrying Histories. Developed with Nairobi based artist Syowia Kyambi (KE), this residency will explore personal and cultural histories through making and discussion. Applications are welcomed from artists, as well as practitioners or theorists in other areas whose interests and experience are relevant to the residency’s theme. Selected residents will be part of a temporary community of between five and eight local and international participants. The residency will involve group activities, discussion and creative exchange around the residency theme, as well as time for independent working. Selection is based on applicants’ ability both to gain from, and contribute to, the activities of the month-long residency. This residency is free of charge and offers comfortable accommodation for non-Oslo based residents in central Oslo. International applicants receive a stipend of 3000 NOK (approximately 300 euros) towards additional costs. There is an application fee of 90 NOK (approximately €9.21/US$10.46).
