Open Call in partnership with AIR Wro

Culture Zone Wrocław within the framework of AIR Wro programme and Berlin Sessions Residency are glad to announce the launch of an open call for a one-month long residency in Berlin. Therefore, cultural, artistic and academic actors from Wrocław and Lower Silesia are invited to apply.

The aim of the residency program is a mapping of the city focusing on models of cooperation between organizations, Berlin’s actors, and citizens. According to the needs of the project suggested by a resident, Berlin Sessions will schedule series of meetings and conversations with managers of independent art spaces and initiatives, festivals, cultural projects and representatives of governmental institutions.  The series of interviews and research on structures supporting cultural activities will serve as a collection of innovative and best practice examples. Some of which could be adapted in the framework of future projects. At the end of the residency, a final presentation of the findings is planned. The program of a panel talk, lecture or a discussion will be shaped in a close collaboration with the resident and partner organizations.

Long-term partnerships

The project is a continuation of a cooperation from 2017 when Paweł Szroniak was invited to realize a series of interviews in Berlin. Paweł Szroniak is a curator and literary theorist. Since 2013 he organizes a series of concerts “Rozkurz”, which is dedicated to the experimental music.  His working period was concluded by a  panel discussion with Steffi Weismann, Burkhard Beins and Kai Fagaschinski in Kunsthaus KuLe. Szroniak continues his research on the local experimental music scene, focusing not only on the artistic phenomenon but also on the processes that create the music community. By interviews with musicians and organizers, he built a subjective atlas of the scene and its historical development (from the 90’s up to now). One of the by-products is a guide listing Spaces for Sound and Experimental Music in Berlin. By inviting Berlin-based musicians to Wrocław, the organizer of “Rozkurz” concerts is strengthening the connection between this two cities even after finalizing his residency.


AIR Wro is a programme of residences, study visits and international cooperation. The goal of AIR Wro is to support and promote the activities of artists representing various fields of culture and art, who are interested in cooperation with representatives of local communities and circles, as well as those willing to build international cultural relations.
