The curator will be in discussion with the artists’ prior and during their stay in Athens in order to provide a rounded collaboration. The residency aims to motivate artists to develop their practice and research inspired by the rich culture of the city.

Artists are welcomed to facilitate a workshop based on their practice or provide a talk/presentation in order to present their work and research to the public.
