In 2019, thanks to close partnerships with various cultural actors in the region, EDHEA was able to offer residencies to its students who had completed a Bachelor or Master course.
Nyakallo Maleke, from South Africa, has been invited to spend three months in Australia – in Sydney and in Aboriginal territory – with the support of the Fondation Opale. This residency will give her the chance to work with representatives from the world of contemporary Aboriginal art.
From April to June 2020
Bachelor’s graduates Laura Ige, from Argentina, and Valentin Merle, from Geneva, will undertake a residency in La Tour-de-Peilz at the La Becque Artist Residency. This site, which opened in September 2018, is home to several international artists. It offers them the perfect facilities for undertaking both individual and collaborative work.
From 9 October to 17 November 2019
And from 19 November to 27 December 2019
Laura Ige has also been awarded a two-month residency in Monthey at the Malévoz Quartier culturel. She will be working in the Galerie du Laurier, staying on-site, and learning from her encounters with local cultural practitioners.
March and April 2020
Julie Trolliet-Gonzalez, who lives in the canton of Vaud, has been selected for a two-month residency in Bruson offered by the PALP Festival and the Musée de Bagnes. The placement provides her with a living space and a workshop near the PALP village : a cultural and tourist lab in the mountains that has made a name for itself as an innovation hub.
