Program Description

We are currently seeking proposals from curators and cultural organizers to program a two-week residency at Anima Casa Rural. As well as leading the residency, curators will have a chance to present their programme and curatorial practice on a panel discussion at the Escuela de Artes de la Secretaría de Cultura de Jalisco (depending on school’s program and availability) in the city of Guadalajara. Programmers will be responsible for selecting and cultivating artists for their programme, and are expected to assist ANIMA staff in promotion and marketing of their programmed residency. As remuneration ANIMA will cover the costs of food (three meals a day) and lodging for the visiting curator, as well as travel from and to the airport. The curator is responsible for their own airfare, and Anima is happy to assist in helping them source funds with an invitation letter.
