Program Description

Alcantara Residency Program is a thematic residency focusing on providing a living working space for artists to experience the city. The location, the building itself and the neighborhood and its dynamics is expected to bridge an interaction between the various fields of artistic expression – visual arts, design, film, literature, media and performing arts – and architecture, generating discussion and collaboration between different artistic and technological platforms, through sharing the physical space of the building that is chosen, planned, reconstructed and designed to perfection by the team and members of Atelier HOLCNEROVA. The work developed is encouraged to be presented through exhibition, lecture, events, etc. but not required. We appreciate the process, the experience and your presence.
