The residency will take  place at the museum in May and June 2023 and is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of  the European Union. 

The residency will take place within the framework of the TAKING CARE Project and will be themed  "Care in a World We Share with Others/ Caring in a Precarious World". In line with this thematic focus, the resident is encouraged to examine the relationship between ecological crises and resulting precarity, and the challenges faced by multicultural societies and communities struggling for cultural  survival.
