The phenomenon of artist residencies is growing rapidly worldwide, reducing the number of areas without such spaces.
AIR TV is a project born in Barcelona, Spain with the aim of mapping all these incredible creative spaces and present each of them in an introductory video, in order to help the residences to differentiate themselves from each other. other. We believe that each residence has its own set of people, skills and services, put at the service of art and culture, and what's better than the power of images to reach a wider audience.
The project also stems from a passion for traveling and a desire to meet and connect with new cultures and people, new visions and opinions, new perspectives and lifestyles, in order to have a clear view of the entire international artist residency sector.
AIRTV is a Web Television dedicated to residencies of artists. The vision of AIRTV is to equally promote all residencies by offering a platform on which each of them can present itself in short videos accessible to all audiences.
AIRTV content includes: residence trailer, interviews, debates, round tables…
The project initially started with the will to help residencies to promote themselves. There are various networks and communities presenting or rating the residencies and editing the latest deadlines and open calls for artists-in-residence programs. However, they do not present any recurrent audiovisual content which is an opportunity for AIR TV to settle in as the official social video media.
AIR TV positions itself as a social video media and a referencing art channel. It aims to collaborate with the existing networks on which the residencies are already part of, and give an added-value to their contents. The platform aims to have an international scope by giving an overview of artists residencies around the globe, with video contents available in English, French and Spanish.
