Program Description

DESPINA RESIDENCY PROGRAMME is designed for artists and curators wishing to immerse themselves in their work and/or research. We provide them with the space to explore practices, concepts, new ideas and materials, and to develop a project while receiving feedback and support. The selected artists/curators have the chance to live and work in Rio de Janeiro and to participate in a range of activities such as talks, meetings, studio visits and exhibition tours. Participants are also encouraged to propose talks and workshops, and to learn about the socio-cultural and political scenario in Brazil. The support, networks and creative environment offered by our programme encourages professional/artistic development and international contacts. The residency includes: • Art studio • Accommodation in a self-contained studio flat (optional) • One on one meetings with a curator • Follow-up meetings • Opportunity to propose workshops and talks • Open studio event at the end of the residency
