MALACATE - Open call for artist-in-residence programme

MALACATE is a project focused on local issues and relating closely with the community that lives on site and around it. All the projects are required to relate (somehow) with the place and/or the inhabitants, but although the focus is local, different approaches and points-of-view are essential to create new space interpretations and original thinking. MALACATE looking for artists interested in exchanging experience and thoughts with the local community, and also willing to expand their own ongoing art-work and conceptual barriers.
