Our permanent call is directed at international artists and academic researchers who want to work on topics related to art and framed by ideas of liberation and autonomy such as those shaping contemporary movements in Chiapas and Mexico.

We accept individuals or small groups of people. Usually, the programme has a duration of 10 nights with a price of $450 USD by person. However, shorter or longer stays are also possible. The starting dates are agreed with each individual or group.

The contents of the program are based on the needs and interests of the resident. We offer seminars, meetings, experiences, excursions, and moments of creation facilitated by GIAP (Research Group in Art and Politics, founded in 2013 by Natalia Arcos and Alessandro Zagato) and other local invitees (artists, gallerists, researchers, and activists). We explore forms of resistant art, in a context like Chiapas, where Mayan and revolutionary traditions are of great inspiration.

Participants are provided with accommodation (with private bathroom and kitchen) in the heart of San Cristóbal de las Casas, one of the most ancient colonial towns in America, rich in history, architecture, languages, and forms of life.

To apply, please send us an email to correogiap@gmail.com, attaching your CV, a brief description of your work and a paragraph on why you consider it important to participate in this program.
