Open Call Residency in Switzerland
8. - 20. August


Open Call for a 12-day residency in Switzerland (Basel / Onsernone Valley) for swiss musicians.

The residency is intended for musicians interested in meeting and exchanging with musicians and cultural workers from Algeria and Tunisia. The first part of the trip will be a stay in Basel, with meetings and getting to know the cultural and musical scene of Basel. The second part will be a 7-day stay in Loco (Casa di Rosa, Onsernone Valley). During the 7 days in Loco, an exchange between the various cultural workers and musicians is intended, and there will also be the opportunity to rediscover music together with the musicians from Tunisia and Algeria. Of course, the second part of the trip will be combined with day hikes and excursions to nearby rivers and mountains. The stay can also be used for hiking, inspiration and field research of sounds in the Onsernone Valley. Registration deadline has passed

The Covid-19 pandemic has made it extremely difficult for musicians from the global South and East to perform and tour in Switzerland. The radio programme called
airtime! 1, starting in February 2022, invites selected musicians from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Latin America to present their work and music on five independent Swiss radio stations (UNIKOM radios). The collaborative project, uniting Radio X, Radio RaBe, Radio 3fach, Radio Gwen and Radio Kanal K, was initiated by
artlink 2 and Südkulturfonds with the much-appreciated support of SRKS (Stiftung Radio und Kultur Schweiz) and Swissperform.
