ART4SEA two-year residency programme 2024–2025

The EU-funded project ART4SEA is calling for applications from Europe-based artists for a 7-day residency, online programme and exhibition on the islands of Ustica (Italy), Alonissos (Greece) or Gozo (Malta), from 2024 to 2025. 

In 2024, the 3 small islands in the Mediterranean Sea will host a 7-day residency programme.

  • On-site exhibition.

In 2025 only artists creating physical artworks will participate in on-site activities for the installation. Digital artists will finalise their artworks and collaborate to the digital exhibition remotely.
