Program Description

We are an artist-run space ;) Our main goal is to facilitate professional/artistic development and international contacts. Agenda: Our residents have the chance to live and work in a colonial house in Vedado, La Habana; and to participate in a range activities such as talks, meetings, and studio visits. Participants are encouraged to propose talks and workshops, and to learn about the socio-cultural scenario in Cuba. Cost: Each artist must pay airfare to and from Havana, Cuba; in addition, all meal costs and incidental expenses incurred in the course of the residency will be the responsibility of the artist. The cost of the residence must be paid 50% via wire at the moment of acceptance of the residence, then 50% in cash once arrived at the residency. We can make letters of invitation in case you wish to apply for outside funding to cover residency costs.
