Artists in Residence

 Residence program is trans-disciplinary laboratory for artist with the  idea to provide time for creativity work in a stimulating environment.

The organization encourages independent art research by individuals who would like to re-defining and re-visioning the relationship between Art and Nature and seek for answers of the question of whether artists may affect social change - art works use creative vision to highlight the ways in which we see the Nature, psychologically, philosophically.

Our Residency Program is suited for all kinds of creative thinkers: artists, writers, curators, cultural managers, and academics. Through the Residency Program, residents are provided with the opportunity to develop their individual projects and are free in selection of the media. They have possibily however, to present and discuss publicly the project they would realize while with us.
