The Center for Contemporary Arts Celje is the central institution in the Savinjska region involved in the reaserch, presentation, development and promotion of local, national and international contemporary visual art. It includes three exhibition spaces (Gallery of Contemporary Art, Likovni salon Gallery and Racka Gallery) and carries out an educational program, outreaching with its activities in the regional framework, while at the same time functioning as a meeting place of local and international artistic events. We maintain active contacts with the rest of the world through our residency program AIR CELEIA, which has been active since 2005 and is dedicated to both artists and curators.

The AIR CELEIA program is conceived on the basis of a reciprocal model that enables the residential artist to become acquainted with, get in contact with, exchange experiences with and get involved in the local artistic community, offering at the same time local artists the possibility of establishing new connections and forms of collaboration, or of a potential presentation of themselves and their work internationally.

The Center for Contemporary Arts is publishing an open call for collaboration in the AIR CELEIA 2012 program. The selected artist will be offered a free two-month stay in our residential flat (which is located in the city center in the immediate vicinity of the Center for Contemporary Arts and the local artistic district; the residence includes a kitchen, a studio, a bedroom, a bathroom and Internet) and a grant of € 600 per month, with travel expenses to be covered by the artist. The Center for Contemporary Arts will arrange for the artist to connect with the city and establish contacts with the local artistic community as well as get acquanited with the artistic events in the local and wider environment.

Since the model of the residential AIR CELEIA program is actively connected with the city and its structure, the selected artist will be expected to make a project, organize a public event, action or performace at any location in the city. The artist will also have the possibility to present himself in an artist talk in one of the exhibition spaces of the Center for Contemporary Arts.

In order to apply, please send the following documents:

- Personal data (name, surname, date of birth)

- Contact details (address, telephone and email)

- Letter of motivation

- Project plan of residential stay (no concrete proposals of project realization in Celje are required; please send only a sketch, idea or description of your artistic practice that demonstrates your interaction with the public space)
