Applications are invited for the Mophradat Residency for Musicians 2019. Mophradat in collaboration with the multidisciplinary art center Le Confort Moderne in Poitiers, France, is offering one residency for a professional musician or ensemble of up to three musicians from the Arab world. The aim is to spend focused time working on a specific project, creating new compositions, or exploring and researching innovative ideas. The residency lasts one week in January 2019.
The selected resident(s) — whether a musician or band — will be accommodated in full board at the venue’s residency facilities and have access to rehearsal rooms and technical support to undertake work throughout their stay, but they must be comfortable working autonomously. Le Confort Moderne will also program a concert of the musician or band and pay a performance fee.
Awards:- Costs for flights, accommodation, visa and insurance, and meals are provided, and includes an opportunity for a public performance.
