ICC Residencies – Open Call

ICC Residencies – Open Call

Arte Institute suggests Imaginarius Creation Centre – Art and Public Space (ICC) open call for artists. ICC is located in Santa Maria da Feira, Portugal and submissions will be accepted until November 9, 2017.


ICC has a great focus on artist residencies, either to the intervention in public space or to indoor presentations. In this scope, it hosts projects of creation, experimentation, reflection and intervention in performative arts, visual arts, media arts, design, architecture, photography, among others.

In the scope of ICC mission, preference is given to those projects harnessing endogenous resources and those including complementary actions for local community (open talks, workshops, etc.)
For the 2017/2018 season, artist residencies will have two phases:

For the first call, with a local scope, the application period runs from October 9 to November 9, 2017. The results are announced on the 17th of November. Projects are hosted in ICC (for a 30 days maximum period), between December 4, 2017, and February 28, 2018.

For the second call, with a national and international scope, the application period runs from January 16 to March 16, 2018. The results are announced on the 9th of April. Projects are hosted in ICC (for a maximum period of 30 days), between June 1 and Decembre 21, 2018.

For the public space intervention, ICC has a close connection with Imaginarius – International Street Theatre Festival, hosting artist residencies from the event calls. Projects interested in presenting performances during the Festival must sign up for those specific calls. For further information please check www.imaginarius.pt/en/
