international artist-residency programme

These programmes invite artists to reside in a new context for a period of time. Formats are incredibly varied: some short-term, some year-long; some requiring a resulting exhibition and others process-based; and some treated as a retreat whereas others include an intensive programme of activities.
Res Artis, the worldwide network of 550 artist residencies, describes the form as: ‘dedicated to offering artists, curators, and all manner of creative people the essential time and place away from the pressures and habits of every-day life, an experience framed within a unique geographic and cultural context.’
