RESIDENCIES FOR ARTISTS AND PROFESSIONALS IN EUROPE
Residencies provide the perfect environment for an artist or professional to spend some time developing their creative project. Residency programmes offer various benefits such as the provision of a workspace, new contacts, visibility and, in some cases, even funding. Europe, with its thriving art scene and support system, is a major attraction for artists and professionals from all over the world. This panel discussion will share visions of four residency models: those of Périscope (Lyon), Budapest Music Center (BMC), Hangar (Barcelona) and Espai La Marfà (Girona), all of which also support the creation of local and international artistic communities.
PIERRE DUGELAY (PÉRISCOPE | SCÈNE DE MUSIQUES INNOVANTES)
Pierre Dugelay is the director of Périscope (Lyon). Opened in 2007, it is a living space aiming at creating and broadcasting innovative music. Périscope’s artistic guideline is mainly focused on jazz and improvised musics but is also wide enough to include rock, noise, hip-hop, soul as well as new kinds of experimental and improvised music. On a yearly basis, Périscope is organizing about 150 shows, as well as social and educational projects along with cultural screenings, talks, workshops and performances contributing to the project’s artistic identity. Périscope aims at being a central workplace for musicians in order to work and experiment on residency and rehearsal projects while also contributing to the growth of a general network with Lobster, its own co-working spot next to the venue. Actor of an innovative and experimental local scene, Périscope also tends to reflect a global state for innovative music by developing its reach with international projects.
