Residency programmes are much needed support nets to facilitate the professional development of artists in early and mid stages of their career. They provide platforms to incubate ideas and exchange them with peers, general public and other professionals from local and international institutions. They offer, in short, time and space for research and experimentation. But what about production? Is it a goal that helps to maintain a focus in the processes? Or is it an imperative that prevents artists to address their proposed topics critically?
