Athena Standards Residency

No Funding
Athens, Greece


Emerging and established artists, working in painting, mixed media, printmaking, performance, installation, dance, musical composition, digital art, photography, video and installation are encouraged to apply. We do not have a kiln, large format digital printer, or flat bed press, but we are able to arrange for artists working in mediums that require those tools to use neighboring facilities. The Athena Standards’ spacious, open-format studios have abundant natural light, and the studio floor includes such amenities as a communal workspace/ woodshop, storage for works in progress, a kitchenette and lounge, keypad access and a security guard in the evenings, as well as a studio manager to provide assistance five days per week. Practice rooms for dance, choreography and performance, and a musical compostion studio with a piano, are located on the floor above the visual arts studios.

Number of Participants

We are able to accommodate 12 artists per month-long residency session. We open all monthly sessions within the year to applications, and reviews of applicants are conducted regularly. We encourage residents to consider staying for two months or longer, in order to develop a deeper knowledge of the city. For 2019, we are offering 10% off the second month and 20% off the third consecutive month.
