With the recent expansion of arts residencies all over the globe, how can residency operators meet the challenge of providing adequate production facilities and infrastructure to artists? How do production needs differ between artforms? And how can we encourage artists in residence to strike a balance between production and experience? The latest Res Artis meeting addressed these questions by proposing innovative solutions based on concepts of pooling resources, co-working spaces and fab-labs.
