Open call for SAL residency program

Sound Art Lab

With Funding
Free / No Costs
Struer, Denmark


The purpose of the SAL Residency Program is to facilitate artistic projects on a high level and to foster exchanges between local, national and international networks. For this particular call we are interested in projects that will contribute significantly to our professional environment in Sound Art Lab. We hope to welcome artists who can inspire us and help us develop SAL as a house in dialogue with local as well as international communities and building on local histories and mentalities. We are particularly interested in projects investigating the histories and developing the potentials of the SAL building, established in 1945 as HQ for Bang and Olufsen and its immediate surroundings.

Number of Participants

We offer 2 residencies for each 3 months during 2021.

Program Description

Residing artists should work on one specific project during the stay and give presentations of the development in artist talks, open studio-sessions or as documentations at our webpage. Options: SAL collaborates with Struer Tracks Sound Art Biennale, taking place for the third time 20/8 -5/9 2021. We encourage artists to present their practice at an artist talk during the biennale. SAL is dedicated to developing a strong education facility. Our guests are also encouraged to collaborate with our sound art educator and give at least one artist talk for local school pupils during the residency. SAL collaborates with Jutland Art Academy and The Royal Academy of Music on developing cross disciplinary student workshops in the field of sound art. The residing artist is encouraged to propose a workshop in this context. The precise form of activities will be negotiated with the staff at Sound Art Lab before a final residency contract is reached.
