Resolution Es Baluard Museum: January 12, 2022
Resolution ADEMA: January 15, 2022

This grant programme has the goal of encouraging participation in the Art and Thought Laboratory of Es Baluard Museum. It is specifically meant to enable interested parties to attend the programme’s first edition, Contact Zone: Repairing Crises.

The programme includes 5 grants from Es Baluard Museu and 5 grants from Escuela Universitaria Adema, conceived with different objectives and recipients. Given the interconnection and transversality between the various modules, with the will to encourage participation throughout the entire programme, all grants are conditioned on carrying out all five modules.

Who can apply?

The grants are addressed to individuals from various backgrounds or in circumstances considered to be “vulnerable” (see the section “Modalities”). Any person interested in the interrelationships between art and culture and other political and social contexts may apply, including those from the fields of artistic practice, as well as those in the humanities, public policy, research, production or cultural management, as well as activists and those involved in social movements or engaged in social change, seeking to involve themselves in projects centred on reflection, research and action in the context of collective labour.
