Several calls are up now

Residency Studio A

The Residency has operated since 2002. For 2011 artist/organisers from around the world are encouraged to apply. The studio is available to use free of charge from March 1st through November 30th. Residency periods can be arranged from 2 to 6 months. People working in all disciplines of art, e.g. visual, performing and media arts, music, criticism, research etc are encouraged to apply.

Application deadline for 2011 AIR period is October 15th 2010.

Studio A Conditions

Artists are expected to find their own means for travel and per diem for living/insurance costs for the residency. MoKS can help with some materials and special tools on previous mutual agreement. MoKS occasionally gives out artist grants for residency period, but it depends on MoKS current year budget.

Studio A Space

The main studio space (41m2) is furnished and heated by a wood stove. There is a bedroom (17m2), kitchen and bathroom supplied with mattresses, bed linen, blankets, towels, cooking utensils and washing machine. The artist in residence stays in the bedroom and has access to the kitchen, studio space, media lab, and bathroom. Occasional events such as workshops or Open Studio days may require the resident artist to temporarily share the facilities (artists will be notified of the conditions previous to arrival). All the rooms have internet access (wireless and wired). Medialab facilities include: miniDV camera, PC with digital video and sound editing possibilities, video projector, TV and DVD/VHS player, and stereo sound system.

MoKS studios are spacious and comfortable, which allows for a concentrated working atmosphere. The climate conditions in Estonia vary throughout the year from 30+C summer to -30C winters. During the colder months the resident artist should be prepared to handle the conditions (bring warm clothes). Basic tasks such as accepting village life, building fires to heat the stoves, cooking and shopping are part of the daily routine. MoKS guests are expected to be responsible, independent and adaptable to living and working in a foreign, rural village which can be socially isolating at times.

NOTE: MoKS is located in a rural community and does not have van or car. Arrangements can be made for special transport needs but at the expense of the resident. Otherwise residents should be prepared to travel with local public transport.
