AiR@SLU Open Call
We are excited to host one artist-in-residence (AiR) at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Uppsala in 2022!
The AiR@SLU is part of the Mistra Environmental Communication research program (more info below), and offers an artist the opportunity to investigate and explore environment and sustainability in collaboration with the research program and community. Practically, the AiR@SLU entails a grant, access to SLU facilities, direct and ongoing contact with a local SLU-host and organisational support from the organising team. We hope this opportunity will enable the selected artist to examine how the environment and sustainability are understood and expressed in a politicised, polarised and complex world.
The AiR@SLU is performed on location in Uppsala from the 1st of September until the 31st of October 2022. It is part of a larger residency program and is facilitated by the Mistra Environmental Communication Media & Art team at the Institute of Communication Studies and Journalism (ICSJ) at Charles University, with additional support from the NGO Sqridge.
