Open Call for Art Residency Program

Proceso A invites you to participate in the open call for our Art Residency program for production, research, and curatorial development.  The program is directed to artists, Cultural affairs managers, designers and researchers to work and live in Oaxaca or Puebla, Mexico, for a short term of a month or two.


The residency program is thought to stimulate the creative and reflexive process from meeting with local and global cultural actors. We are interested in set dialogues with community visions to discuss the social, economic and aesthetic dynamics of the place as of the recognition of their cultural practices in order to stimulate the exchange and collaboration between cultural creators and artistic local and global institutions emphasizing in projects which language and format fit in contemporary debates.

‘Proceso A’ counts with two spaces, the room stay and the production workshop located in an strategical point outside the city, where artisans, archeological sites and traditional market converge to link and help to improve the creative proposals of the artists and at the same time allow them to have a reflexive exercise with regards of the practices coming from the place.

The gallery and printing lab is located in Oaxaca historical center, in a zone full of cultural activities, surrounded by art galleries and workshops, museums, design stores, and more.


The residency in Oaxaca gives access to four workshops: Production, Fine art printing lab, Cyanotype, and Joinery workshop, the intention is that the residents use the workshops to work in their proposal starting from the cultural, social, political contact that the space offers; digital production, photography, editorial, silk print, industrial design, utilitarian objects,  ways of mounting, etc.

The residency is, first of all, a meeting space and interaction articulator.


The production or final products will be shown to the public in an open studio format, exhibition, workshop or talk.
