Program Description

halka art project invites visual artists, writers, musicians, performers, story tellers, curators, poets, cultural researchers among others to apply to its residency programme. The weekly residency fee for a single artist is €375 and €550 for artist dous or couples who want to share a private room. On the other hand, halka art project is happy to announce that it is not an artist hotel. We expect to see the end result of each residency periods. For stays longer than a month we organize exhibitions for the local audience and art circles. For shorter visits we encourage our artists to hold an artist talk to share their experience so that the residency term would not be an exotic trip to Istanbul. Our team of curators, art managers and artist assistants help our residents in every step of the realization of their projects on day to day basis. We use our network for the promotion of the residency projects and for our guests to meet with the local audience and professionals.
