[Portugal-based artists only] WESTWAY LAB 2016 OPEN CALL FOR ARTIST RESIDENCIES / OPEN CALL PARA RESIDÊNCIAS ARTÍSTICAS WESTWAY LAB 2016
Promoter is searching for Bands & DJs

Artists in Residence on 2016-04-06 - 2016-04-15 in Guimarães , PT

The [Portugal-based artists only] WESTWAY LAB 2016 OPEN CALL FOR ARTIST RESIDENCIES / OPEN CALL PARA RESIDÊNCIAS ARTÍSTICAS WESTWAY LAB 2016 is seeking for Bands & DJs from all genres.

Westway Lab is a unique an innovative showcase festival in Portugal. It combines three streams: artist residencies (Process), PRO conference (Thought), and showcase concerts (Product). For the artist residence component, international artists from each year's ETEP roster (who play at Eurosonic Festival in the Netherlands in January) are invited to choose Portuguese artists from the Westway LAB national artist bank who they can be matched with in the Westway artist residence workgroups: 8 to 10 days of creative time in Guimarães, at the Candoso Creative Centre, writing and composing new material together, all in anticipation of the Westway LAB showcases on the final weekend of the Festival.

Each work group can be made up of up to three people; sometimes two are from the national Portuguese band or act and there is an international guest; other times two come from abroad to work with a single Portuguese artists. The residencies are open to every genre, and so the Open Call is directed at gathering all interested national Portuguese artists so that a shortlist of 10 can be put together to present to our international guests at Eurosonic.

Previous national participants include members of peixe : avião, Moonshiners, La La La Ressonance, The Glockenwise, Primitive Reason, The Weatherman, PZ and others. We look forward to your interest in this Open Call for National Portuguese Artists / Artists Residing in Portugal!

----------------

O Westway LAB é um festival inovador e único em Portugal que assenta o seu conceito de realização em 3 vetores: residências artísticas (processo), conferências PRO (pensamento) e concertos (produto). É sobretudo o seu primeiro vetor (residências artísticas) que o diferencia e lhe confere um caráter original em cada edição. Assim, em cada ano o Westway LAB reúne artistas nacionais e europeus (que actuem no Festival Eurosonic em Janeiro e fiquem assim dentro do banco de artistas ETEP - European Talent Exchange Programme), formando grupos de trabalho multi-nacionais para trabalhar, numa residência artística de 8 a 10 dias no Centro de Criação de Candoso em Guimarães. O propósito? Compor e ensaiar novo material em conjunto para apresentar, no Centro Cultural Vila Flor, no último fim de semana do festival, um showcase inédito de 30 minutos!

Cada grupo de trabalho é composto por um máximo de 3 artistas, podendo ser dois nacionais de um grupo ou projecto e 1 internacional; ou vice-versa. As residências estão abertas a qualquer estilo musical, e este Open Call visa aferir interesse e reunir uma lista de 10 artistas nacionais que a organização possa levar ao Eurosonic em Janeiro, de forma a apresentar estes 10 artistas nacionais aos futuros convidados internacionais. Mesmo que não sejam seleccionados para as 4 residências finais, o próprio Open Call já é uma forma de promover a nova música portuguesa fora de portas.

Participantes nacionais das edições anteriores incluem elementos dos peixe : avião, Moonshiners, La La La Ressonance, The Glockenwise, Primitive Reason, The Weatherman, PZ e outros. Aguardamos o vosso interesse enquanto artistas portugueses!
