Call for proposals | Artists in Residencies

'Mind Puzzle' is a transdisciplinary artproject, initiated by the Tanz- und Theaterwerkstatt Ludwigsburg and the choreographer and director Fabian Chyle.
'Mind Puzzle' centers around the subject 'dementia' and aims to raise awareness for people with dementia through artistic interventions and events.
Another central goal is to establish a not deficit-orientated discourse.

'Mind Puzzle' connects theory and practice, establishes artistic intervention in public space and creates space for networking and exchange. Every year there will be a conference - 'Zukunftswerkstatt' - on different relevant topics. The topic of the 'Zukunftswerkstatt 2014' will be how the arts deal with the phenomenon dementia, the different views of artists on the topic as seen in their work and the meaning of the arts and artistic endavours for people with dementia and theit supporting systems.

For the 'Zukunfstwerkstatt 2014' we offer 3 'Artists in Residencies' (10. - 26.10.2014) for artists from all disciplines.

The chosen artists will research for one week in institutions for the elderly in Ludwigsburg. After that we will provide working- and rehearsal space. for the artists to process the impressions and thoughts about their experience. The results will be presented at the 'Zukunftswerkstatt'.

* Rehearsal- / Working space
* Fee: 2000 €
