Project Glocal is a social experiment conceived and spearheaded in 2011 by Manila-based curator Dayang Yroala. Involving artists from different cities; they are subjected to situations or circumstances where they are to interact with and in their respective cities and participating cities with other Project Glocal artists. Interactions were in form of conversations (dubbed in this project as Small Talk, which connotes that in this conversation the agenda is to dissect “small” issues of artists in and with cities and not to create grand narratives), exhibit that featured existing works that correlate to other Project Glocal artists’ work or create new collaborative works, and a publication that catalogues experiences in engaging in and with arts, artists, cities, people, and all three of them together or separately. The main agenda is for the city artists to find interest in each other, to nurture sense of kinship and to encourage them to form a lasting bond beyond their geo-political boundaries.
Transi(en)t series is Project Glocal 2014. It is a format for a lightning, which means the residency will be shorter than usual residencies, and a nomad residency.
