No Funding


Applications are welcomed from architects, artisans, craftspeople, artists, designers and all others whose interests and experience are relevant to the residency’s theme. Essential for selection is an interest in community, in place making, and in low impact construction. REQUIREMENTS English is the common language at PRAKSIS and residents must be sufficiently fluent to participate in group discussion and activity. Residents are expected to involve themselves fully in the work of the residency: joining discussions, participating in events and engaging with the resident community. Accepting a residency involves a commitment to participation for the full residency term.

Number of Participants

16 places are available. Selection will be based on the relevance of the application and the applicant’s ability both to gain from, and contribute to, the activities of the online residency. PRAKSIS aims to provide an environment for development and professional growth: applications are welcome from practitioners of differing ages and experience levels.

Program Description

During phase two of An Urgent Situation, a series of online gatherings will focus on a specific task: the conceptual and physical development of Samong Haven Bali, a culture centre presently in development in rural North-West Bali, Indonesia. This initiative offers participants a unique opportunity to propose and develop ideas that connect visitors and the visited, encourage cultural exchange and development, minimise environmental impact and contribute to conservation. Combining insights from phase one with new concepts and inspirations, the group will (a) script a manifesto for responsible and resilient development, and (b) create design proposals for Samong Haven Bali – plans for sustainable, low-impact constructions that reflect the manifesto’s ideals and are practically realisable.
