Fellowship: HANGAR, Portugal
20 OCT – 20 DEC 2016 DEADLINE: 10am, Monday 23 May 2016

Gasworks’ International Fellowships Programme offers UK-based artists the opportunity to undertake a residency at one of Gasworks’ partners abroad.

Gasworks is the hub of the Triangle Network, an international network of arts organisations and projects, mostly based in Africa, Asia and South America. The Network’s main activities include artists’ workshops, residencies, exhibitions and events that promote international mobility and exchanges. One such project is our Fellowship Programme, which enables UK-based artists to spend between 4 and 8 weeks in residence with a Triangle partner to carry out research and/or develop new work influenced by dialogue with the host organisation and a new artistic context.

HANGAR is an Artistic Research Centre, located in the area of Graça, in Lisbon. It includes spaces for artistic residences, artists’ studios, art education, exhibitions and public programme.

With an aim to connect geographies, cultures and identities, HANGAR seeks to organise and produce cross-disciplinary visual art projects and public presentations, making Lisbon the focus of such activities.

HANGAR is an independent space run by artists and curators. It is a place for experimentation, research and reflection of artistic practices. HANGAR aims to act as a catalyst for artists, researchers and other artistic initiatives and professionals; encouraging discussion on emerging contemporary art and stimulating the development of artistic and theoretical practices motivated by experimental and shared experiences.
