AVAM (Associated Visual Artists of Madrid) is
organising a competition to select artistic
projects for MADRID PROCESOS 06. This competition
forms part of the activities run by CRAC,
Co-ordination of Resources for Contemporary Art,
which is an initiative promoted by AVAM that
seeks to dynamise the artistic network by
focusing on improving production conditions.

The objective of the MADRID PROCESOS project is
to support and co-ordinate production processes,
facilitating residence, exchange, training and
access to resources for contemporary art. To
achieve this, an international competition is
being launched in order to select projects that
will be developed in the second half of 2006.


1.- Participants:

Artists of any nationality and any age may
present projects as individuals or groups. At
least 50% of the selected artists will be persons
from Madrid, either born there or resident in the Community of Madrid in 2006.

2.- Projects:

Projects will be focused on the production phase
of the work, and will be organised using the
resources available in the Community of Madrid.
The different stages of this process will be
displayed at MADRID PROCESOS 06 (see point 6).
With regard to the projects, consideration will
be given to the investigational aspect of the
production process and projects that strengthen
collaboration between cultural agents and
institutions in the Community of Madrid.

Eight artistic projects will be selected and included in MADRID PROCESOS 06.
