Mistra Environmental Communication research programme (Mistra-EC) is conducted the new artist-in-residence (AiR) program in collaboration with Charles University in the Czech Republic, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Sweden, and the University of the Sunshine Coast in Australia.
In 2022 and 2023, artist-in-residencies will be run at each of these locations. We welcome artists in any discipline, from visual, to sculptural, to digital media, and beyond. The programs offers an artist the opportunity to investigate and explore environment and sustainability in collaboration with the research program and community.
The applications have already been opened for two AiRs: one in Prague and one in Uppsala.
The AiR@CU is performed on location in Prague from the 1st of August until the 30th of September 2022.

All AiRs invite artists to collaborate in a dialogical fashion with academics and to become immersed in the Mistra Environmental Communication research programme, to develop creative work that situates environmental communication in art and explores academic research through an artistic lens. The dialogues with researchers serve as inspiration for artwork(s), and enriches the perspectives of the researchers. The goal of the AiRs is to foster collaboration between participants and to unlock new perspectives on environmental communication.
