Program Description

ICA residencies are open to creative individuals and scholars from across the disciplinary spectrum of the visual and performing arts, literature, and all areas of the humanities. They are available on a weekly basis, ranging from as little as one week to as long as three months. Our residencies are family-friendly and ICA provides many options for accommodation of spouses or partners, family members and children, with a range of activities for those guests not participating in the Residency program. ICA Residencies are all-inclusive and provide: airport transfer from the Rome (Fiumicino) Airport, airport welcome and departure service, double or single accommodation (private apartments are available for an additional fee), three chef-catered meals per day, private studio space, one excursion per week to cities such as Rome and Florence, and ongoing bilingual support 24/7. Facilities for drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, and photography are available.
