The Res Artis Meeting “Prepare for Production: On Residencies and Artistic Production” was a three day conference from October 25 to 27 in Copenhagen hosted by Danish Art Workshops, in collaboration with the Fabrikken/ The Factory of Art and Design.

The impressive workshop spaces and facilities at Danish Art Workshops and the Factory of Art and Design provided the perfect backdrop for a meeting that dealt with topics of providing adequate production facilities and infrastructure to artists. The DAW contains studio space and workshop facilities for ceramics, metal, wood, photo, textile, weaving, IT and graphic printing. Cultural activities rounded up the busy meeting schedule filled with presentations, panel and workshop sessions and gave meeting participants a feeling for the Danish arts scene.

We welcomed around 120 meeting attendees to Copenhagen and were honoured to count Mette Bock, Danish Minister of Culture as part of our opening session. We want to thank all meeting participants, speakers, contributors and helping hands who made this meeting such a success.
