_inventory residency is an itinerant residency that engages communities in art through public performances, events and discussions, striving to promote art that is public participatory, educational, utilising local and accessible resources.

This residency was conceptualized with rural communities at its centre, a format to create a happening in a specific rural community. This happening will also serve as a platform to generate a dialogue amongst local and international artists, curators and collectives whilst interacting with the community and its people.

By working in spaces that have a distinct local tradition and cultural identity, the residency sharpens the focus on the dialogic between the global and the national. We are looking to initiate a strong network of thinkers operating in a global context yet, bringing in different understandings of various ‘locals’, enabling dialogues with the understanding of rural in the contemporary context.
