Radio Art Resi­den­cy is an inter­na­tio­nal fel­low­ship pro­gram for artis­tic prac­tice on the radio. In coope­ra­ti­on with the Goe­the-Insti­tut, Radio CORAX offers a three-month resi­den­cy twice a year in Hal­le (Saa­le) for artists from non-Ger­man speaking coun­tries.

The resi­dence pro­gram was crea­ted to pro­vi­de a field of expe­ri­men­ta­ti­on for artis­tic pro­ces­ses. The pro­gram encou­ra­ges artists of various disci­pli­nes to explo­re nar­ra­ti­ve and tech­ni­cal pos­si­bi­li­ties of the medi­um of radio and spe­ci­fi­cal­ly pro­mo­tes the explo­ra­ti­on of radio as an instru­ment for com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on. The pro­gram is addres­sed to artists who intend to use the medi­um not only as an exhi­bi­ti­on space for their artis­tic works but as a medi­um of real time.

The resi­dence in Hal­le (Saa­le) is inten­ded to pro­vi­de both inspi­ra­ti­on and artis­tic ori­en­ta­ti­on for the scho­l­ar­ship hol­ders. The aim of the fel­low­ship is to sup­port the deve­lop­ment of inde­pen­dent artis­tic works, rather than the rea­li­za­ti­on of an alrea­dy com­ple­ted work. The scho­l­ar­ship pro­vi­des cura­to­ri­al super­vi­si­on and tech­ni­cal sup­port by Radio CORAX. During the three-month stay, the scho­l­ar­ship hol­ders will get to know the Ger­man radio sce­ne, local radio pro­fes­sio­nals and artists in order to exchan­ge ide­as and gain inspi­ra­ti­on from the inter­cul­tu­ral dia­lo­gue.

Radio CORAX is a non-com­mer­ci­al local radio that can be recei­ved on the FM fre­quen­cy 95.9 MHz in the Hal­le (Saa­le) area and via live stream 24 hours a day. As a com­mu­ni­ty-based radio, CORAX ope­ra­tes with an eman­ci­pato­ry claim of soci­al equa­li­ty and indi­vi­du­al free­dom. The aim is to give all peop­le access to radio in this sen­se. With about 100 regu­lar trans­mis­si­ons and 300 radio makers, Radio CORAX is the lar­gest non-pro­fit radio in Eas­tern Ger­ma­ny. Radio CORAX has long expe­ri­ence in hos­ting con­fe­ren­ces, fes­ti­vals and work­shops. The radio is an active con­tri­bu­tor to natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal com­mu­ni­ty media net­works. After hos­ting the inter­na­tio­nal radio fes­ti­val Radio Revol­ten in 2006 and 2016 and being enga­ged in the radio art net­work Radia sin­ce 2006, with the Radio Art Resi­den­cy Radio CORAX intends to crea­te a con­ti­nuous space for radio art.

The Goe­the-Insti­tut is the cul­tu­ral insti­tu­te of the Federal Repu­blic of Ger­ma­ny with a glo­bal reach. It pro­mo­tes know­ledge of the Ger­man lan­guage abroad and fos­ters inter­na­tio­nal cul­tu­ral coope­ra­ti­on. Wit­hin the frame­work of its film, TV and radio divi­si­on, the Goe­the-Insti­tut pro­vi­des infor­ma­ti­on about the Ger­man media land­s­cape. It initia­tes net­wor­king, pro­vi­des exch­an­ges and faci­li­ta­tes pro­jec­ts bet­ween Ger­man and inter­na­tio­nal media pro­fes­sio­nals. The Radio Art Resi­den­cy is the first of its kind wit­hin the net­work of the Goe­the-Insti­tut. It pro­vi­des the gran­tees with pos­si­bi­li­ties to bene­fit from the mul­ti-facet­ted cul­tu­ral activi­ties of the Goe­the-Insti­tut.
