📍 First stop: Budapest/Zsennye, Hungary
MANIFEST Artistic Journey has officially started. The first artistic residency took place in Budapest and Zsennye, Hungary, and it was an incredible experience of enrichment and connection.
The artists who will create the 12 engaging projects embarked on a ten-day journey from June 4 to 13, immersing themselves in a world of inspiration and creativity. They had the privilege of engaging with our esteemed project partners, fostering meaningful connections that will shape their artistic endeavours.
The residency started with captivating lectures from Les Anneaux de la Mémoire and Pro Progressione, where the artists delved into thought-provoking topics about the history of the transatlantic trade and its impact on the society, artists identities with Borsos Lőrinc, memory, politics, monuments and public art projects with József Mélyi and green artistic practices. They also attended consultations by Khora and Gerador, that offered fresh demonstrations on AR/VR and audiovisual production. And one-on-one meetings with CUMEDIAE about the dissemination and distribution of their artworks.
