Program Description

Driven by the desire to intensify and exchange knowledge with artists through creative and productive practices, in 2015 Zaratan announced the promotion of an international art residency. Our goal is to mix experienced with emerging artists and give them the possibility to bring their work in an international context through exchange and collaboration within the local network. The artists-in-residence at Zaratan are given the opportunity to develop a project over a fixed period of time, and to reflect and consolidate their artistic practice. During their stay in Lisbon, the selected artists will be required to meet on a regular basis with the curatorial team of Zaratan. We provide private accommodation, 24/7 private working studio, technical assistance, promotion and communication support, open public presentation of the residency process.
