ABOUT THE RESIDENCY:

With the residency programme BCN>TNS, Jiser aims to establish bridges among youth associations and visual artists in the Mediterranean area. The residencies take place in the cities of Tunis and Barcelona for three months. At the end of the residency there is an exhibition of the work done and the publication of a catalogue. The programme objective is to allow artists to deepen their work and its perception in a context other than their own. The artists learn and experiment with the new environment of the host city.

LOCATION:

The BCN>TNS programme takes place in the cities of Barcelona and Tunis.
