Akiyoshidai International Art Village ResidenceThe Residence Support Program provides a time and place for artists to experience new encounters and carry out experiments to guide their future projects. Participating artists are expected to bring new ideas to the local culture and people while they, in turn, will hopefully acquire new perspectives through these fresh encounters. As a result of the residence program, the artists will convey their new experiences, gathered from the local lifestyle and our particular  geographic situation, to their next destination. We hope that the residence program at Akiyoshidai International Art Village becomes a space for artists to go beyond cultural borders and expand their outlooks, exchange their unique understandings and establish relationships with fellow artists.

Koumaria Residency 2013


Where: Greece

Application deadline: 15/07/2013

Residency period: 24/10/2013- 04/11/2013

Since 2009 the Athen’s based artist collective Medea Electronique has organized annually a 10-day experimental artist residency, held at an organic olive-oil farm outside a small village near Sparta in Greece.

The works created may vary considerably, from site-specific fixed installations, dance pieces, sound art and music, video and other image intensive art, or any and every hybrid.  The unifying theme behind the works is simply that they all are created with a spirit of improvisatory exploration, and that each artist is open to, indeed hoping for, collaborative input from other residents.  We view the final projects as the product of the residency itself, as opposed to individual artists.

MedeaElectronique specializes in collective art creating and production, and looks forward to assisting with your projects.  We ask that you be as specific as possible with respect to your needs, both material (equipment, etc.) and personnel (expertise and the like).  The residency site will be equipped with the following:

Kosice Artist in Residence LogoInternational Artist-in-Residence  Košice 2013, Slovakia

In the frame of European Capital of Culture the NGO Košice 2013 is running an international Artist-in-Residence program for emerging artists from all over the world in all artistic disciplines and expressions.

The organisers have three main goals within the KAIR residency program:

  1. Support the creative energy of every invited artist and give her/him the chance to work in a new environment and to find (new) artistic ways of expression
  2. Stimulate the art scene in Košice, in the region and in whole Slovakia. Support the dialogue as well as the confrontation of the residency artists with local artists and the wide public.
  3. Create/strengthen a beneficial environment for the development of innovative and international contemporary art projects with international and local participants.

According to these goals, our team introduces every artist to the social environment of the city and the region and help them to build up networks and collaborations with local artists. We organize public events like exhibitions, artist talks, projections, workshops, open studios to give all artists the chance to introduce and present themselves to a wide public.
