International Thematic Residencies

(Re)union extends its activities with International Thematic Residency Programs in home and/or resident countries of the network members. Thematic residencies intend to bring (Re)union members in an intense working period in order to trigger an exchange and continuous connection as well as new artistic collaborations within the network and local contacts via working on a theme or a question that is related to the local and global actualities in the artistic, societal and political spheres. Nevertheless, establishing a direct link with local communities is one of the priorities of those residencies.
