Program Description

33OC is an artist-run non-profit association, managing a theater and program of international artist residencies located in Toffia — a small medieval village perched on a rock 60Km NE of Rome. Our small residency program offers professional artists the time and space to work in the pastoral landscape of Sabina region and to explore the lesser known rural culture of Italy. The residency is located in a deconsecrated 13th Century church – currently an active theater and in its adjacent building. Artists are offered access to the theater, multipurpose work spaces, and shared living quarters. The entire theater and the adjacent spaces are put at the disposal of the artists in residence. We use the spaces in an organic way based on what activities are taking place in the theater and the work needs of the resident artist. We provide multi-use spaces and equipment, which artists need to coordinate usage upon arrival with the Residency Manager and the other artists-in-residence.
