Snehta Residency

No Funding
Athens, Greece


Who are we looking for We are looking for contemporary practitioners that will demonstrate a genuine interest in the social context of Athens and who can engage with it critically by challenging social norms and taboos. We are looking for creative practitioners who will be open to collaborate and work with other artists and curators. Snehta candidates should demonstrate an interest in the local community of Kypseli or more widely towards other communities based in the city. We are interested in artists who are driven by a research-based and explorative approach, and who will engage playfully and creatively with the city. We will take artists on board who believe Art is a vehicle for increasing awareness and participation in the community.
