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 professional 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 Despina Residency Programme encourages professional/artistic development and international contacts. Please, download the PDF file available at and see how to apply. Residencies can last between 1 and 3 months. You can also learn more about the programme, criteria and costs.
