If your art practice embraces community interaction or collaboration in some way,  temporary public art or site specific installation, sustainability or other models of art as social practice, this is the residency for you.

The theme of the Art Residency is ‘Su Bixinau’, Sardinian for ‘the neighbourhood’. The Bixinau has always been an important point of aggregation and socialization: women used to sit and talk to their neighbors, entertaining themselves in manual work such as sewing, knitting, etc. ; the streets pullulate of the voices of children playing, while the men held conversations among themselves. Not even 60 years ago every neighborhood was composed of more than 20 large families with even up to 10 children. The Bixinau, the street, was a strong meeting point in which people socialize. Today, where youth have left to study and work in urban centres, many houses are empty, but each day, the elderly sit on benches to visit and chat. The character of the Residency is Transdisciplinar and it is open to artists, researchers, writers or everyone who wish to be integrated in an unique place where is still possible to appreciate authentic aspects.

The participants will live in private houses in the village in Nurri, in the center of Sardinia, the Sarcidano, in a calm environment rich with history, mystery and magnetism, which allows to disconnect from the outside and move towards an intimate space, discovering the slow passing of the days which is maybe the secret of the longevity of its inhabitants. It is not strange to walk the streets of the village and meet seniors over 100 years old. The program aims to create a cultural exchange, discovering local traditions and keeping in touch with artisans who still preserve an ancient knowledge of old techniques that are risking to disappear. The artists will have the opportunity to visit places of archaeological thanks to the professionalism of Archeogeo.

The artists will have a unique opportunity to be part of the Symposium, organized by IVYnode in collaboration with Fondazione Sciola.  to exhibit their work first in the Monastery of Santa Rosa in Nurri and then in the Museum del Crudo in San Sperate.
