Open Call Residency in Algeria
8. - 20. April


Description: Open Call for a 12-day residency trip in Algeria: 8. - 20. April, 2023
The residency is designed for musicians from Switzerland who want to break out of their daily routine and have a unique life experience in Algeria. The residency is linked to a journey that can be used as inspiration, exchange and field research of sounds (or silence) in the Sahara desert. The destination of the trip is Sefar in Algeria, an ancient, formerly hidden and forgotten city in the heart of the Tassili n'Ajjer mountains, more than 2400 km south of Algiers.

The application deadline for this has passed.
There will be another similar residency in summer 2023: Keep your eyes open!

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.
