Artist Residency Programs aim to support and facilitate the professional development of artists. They allow artists to work outside their everyday life and offer them networking opportunities with colleagues, curators and arts professionals worldwide.
During their stay in these contemporary art’s influential cities, ARTWORKS Fellows will participate in a dynamic program of studio visits, seminars, workshops carefully designed by the hosting organizations.
We aspire that our collaborations with ISCP and Delfina will enable greek contemporary artists to become part of the global art community and serve as a reference point for their careers in the future.
