Between December 1 and 31, 2023, we open the call to anyone interested in being part of the International Experimentation Residency IEFC-EXP 2024. It will be carried out during the 10 days prior to the Experimental Photo Festival, July 13 to 23, 2024, and we invite participants to stay at the festival to share their experiences.

During your stay, each of the residents will have one day to do a theoretical-practical workshop where you have to teach an experimental technique that you know to the rest of the group. The residency aims to generate a small horizontal collaborative learning community where you can work with 8 different techniques. It is not a place where each of you individually will work on your projects (as in the traditional residency). It will conclude with a collective exhibition on the process of learning the different techniques, and not the results, on the ground floor of the Institute of Photographic Studies of Catalonia.

Experimental Residence

The residence

  • will be directed and coordinated by Célica Véliz who will be with the group during the ten days;

  • will be 8 participants knowledgeable in 8 different techniques;

  • In the mornings at school we will do the theoretical part of the workshops and in the afternoons we will be in the laboratory and a room at the IEFC with the practical part;

General conditions

Registration entails automatic acceptance of the following rules, the same for all participants

  1. The tickets purchased for the festival and for the residency cannot be returned in any case. If the participant decides not to come to Barcelona, their ticket can be converted into an online festival ticket so that the participant can live the experience from anywhere in the world. 

  2. The participants give the Experimentalphotofestival Association the non-exclusive right to distribute and reproduce the photographs sent digitally (always indicating the name of the photographer and the title of the work) for promotion (for example: newsletters, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Linkedin, the festival websites, Ágora, IEFC, Centro Cívico Pati Llimona and the galleries where the exhibitions are held), for exhibition, educational and commercial purposes. No royalties or compensation will be paid for these purposes. The photographer retains all copyright and ownership rights in the works. However, please also note that third parties such as educational institutions, journalists, search engines or individuals may download, save, store or archive images from our website with or without our knowledge. The Experimentalphotofestival Association will have no control over such downloading and the subsequent use and therefore cannot accept responsibility for such use.

  3. Participants assign their image rights to the Experimentalphotofestival Association and it does not have the power to assign them to third parties without express consent. By registering, they authorize it to capture, reproduce and disseminate the images of the festival where their person is in still image or video format without geographical or temporal limitation and free of charge.

  4. The Experimentalphotofestival Association reserves the right to exclude from the festival those dossiers and participants who violate the general conditions of participation or who violate our values, copyright, and human or privacy rights.

  5. The Experimentalphotofestival Association is the organizer of the Experimental Photo Festival and the Ágora, School of Experimentation, which means that the assignment of rights to the association automatically allows its use by both events.
