The Unifiedfield Nomadic Artist-in-Residence Program in The Philippines was initiated in 2013 and is currently working in collaboration with Balud Art Network. Access to this AIR program is open to all artists, filmmakers, musicians, writers and curators without restriction, but priority will be given to artists working on environmental and relational, site-specific projects on the experimental and interdisciplinary fringes. The Unifiedfield will select the most interesting proposals, in terms of social and artistic interest, from the total number of applications. For artists who apply, this is a production-based residency where The Unifiedfield AIR team will assist the participants in the development of a new project or the continuation of an existing one in various regions of The Philippines. Please check at the end of this page some of the locations and the communities we have engaged with. We are currently expanding our network and other emplacements can be proposed, depending on the nature of the selected projects.

The Unifiedfield is an independent non-profit artist-run organization with no external funding. To cover the residency expenses we charge a residency fee (please note that we do not accept self-funded artists). The Unifiedfield can assist the artists with letters of invitation to enable to raise funds to cover the residency as well as the artist’s production costs, living and travel expenses, etc. [Some of the participating artists-in-residence have been supported by their national funding bodies: Singapore National Arts Council, Singapore International Foundation, Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan, Danish Arts Foundation, Stroom Den Haag, Mondriaan Fund, The Japan Foundation Asia Center Fellowship Program, BMUKK, NÖ Kultur, and Austrian Embassy Manila]. The amount will vary depending on the project and travel costs of the nomadic residency. The Unifiedfield will design an itinerary and budget / week / person including: accommodation, meals, transport within The Philippines, interpreter, guide, assistance in the pre-production and realization of the projects, documentation and organization of several events for diffusion of the projects. The residency fees will also contribute to the sustainability and continuation of The Unifiedfield Artist-in-Residence Program in the future since we are planning to grant two local artists a year.

Genuinely attentive to the artists’ needs, The Unifiedfield remains flexible, and if the occasion arises where a larger space is required for a certain event, The Unifiedfield can collaborate locally and internationally with other art spaces and institutions. Eventually, if circumstances allow and under the discretion of The Unifiedfield, we can organize several other presentations for further promotion of the artists.
