Manifesto / Sponsored Virtual Artist Residency

Extermination is constantly knocking on our doors, and it’s clear that solidarity is in a crisis. In the face of uncertainty, the world has chosen to undermine, divide and conquer, rather than remember, listen and empower. To think we can continue our daily lives without being affected is not only irresponsible but impossible. Therefore, envisioning justice could only happen in the anti-colonial way; in other words, justice is only possible when seeing with those who suffer violence and injustice.

Over the years, Arquetopia has nurtured a community beyond borders, intersecting the lives and experiences of diverse artists, writers and scholars. It has become a space where resistance, knowledge and ethics continuously intersect with different kinds of artistic practices and experiences. We are committed to imagine a collective present, past and future where everyone is invited to participate, and our collective well-being is not only considered but necessary.

This is an invitation for all of our alumni from over the last 15 years to connect, share, learn, listen and join us in a free virtual residency. Manifesto is a Virtual Artist Residency Program fully sponsored by Arquetopia Foundation, an opportunity to take action by connecting our artistic practices through collective mentoring sessions, discussions and critical readings. The program is taking place in cyberspace from December 2023 through February 2024.

Deadline for applications is Friday, December 1, 2023. To apply, please contact us at
