The residency in Sardinia has a duration of 2-3 weeks and offers artists and writers living and working space in a quiet area in the south of Sardinia, close to nature and about half an hour from the sea. Laimun is aimed at artists and writers who need a reserved space and a period to create new work, pursue artistic research, or conclude an ongoing project.
Laimun welcomes applications from all fields of art and culture, such as visual arts, literature, photography, new media, music, design, architecture, film, cultural studies, and many others. Laimun is an inclusive project and is open to candidates of any nationality. They encourage applications by linguistic and cultural minorities, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and second-generation Italians.
The hosting house is equipped with an extensive library of books and magazines from the 1960s until the early 2000s and diverse collectibles and objects. For this reason, the residency is also particularly suitable for artists/creatives interested in working with archival materials and cultural history. Candidates are encouraged to take advantage of these collections for their projects or research topics. Most books/magazines are in Italian and French. A reading and research corner in English will be made available, depending on the topics of interest of the candidates. The selected residents will be able to use the help of the Laimun team to discuss their projects. Other activities and/or meetings related to their disciplines will be also be organized during the residency.
