The residencies are intended for individual professional artists, fiction writers, poets, novelists, translators, curators and critics, and artistic collectives (minimum group size is 3 people) of all disciplines and all nationalities. They welcome artists at all stages of their professional life. Priority is given to multidisciplinary, new, or non-mainstream themes and fields of art. Artists with families and partners are also welcome to apply.
