Queens Collective aims to provide arts and cultural opportunities to artists from around the world and the local community through exchange and sharing of artistic skills, exhibitions, screenings, performances and collaborative creation.
The QC programme provides a residency for local and international artists to live, work, share, experiment, discuss and network in the Medina of Marrakech, Morocco.
The residency programme is for multidisciplinary artists, particularly with social and critical art practices, that can engage local communities to reflect on feminist and gender-related topics in a postcolonial site-specific context.
Being in residency at Queens Collective its not only about you as an artist it's about you as an artist in Marrakech Morocco.
QC is open for proposals of any kind for interventions within the space.
The Queens Collective offers a residency program of 3 months.
The framework of the residency programme is partly created by the Queens Collective who offer fundamental guidelines, formed from our years of experience operating in the Marrakech Medina, and by the needs and aims of current artists in residence which are in constant flux. As an artist in residence you merge and adapt to the identity of the Queens Collective.
The current artists in residence will collectively organize themselves in the space regarding workspace, dorm space and scheduling of shared meals, with strict consideration and care for the maintenance of the house and respect for each other.
Artists in residence should aim to work with each other and with the local community. They have the possibility to network with Moroccan artists and other visiting artists in Marrakech, using QC house, as an already a well established event space in Marrakech, which easily facilitates becoming part of the Marrakech art scene.
There are weekly activities for the local community of Marrakech in which you will become involved in as part of the residency programme.
Every 1.5 months there is a public presentation to share individual, collaborative works and work in progress. These dates are fixed and not changeable. The public presentation takes place within the Queens Collective space.
