Artist residence in Rome, Italy at c.r.e.t.a. rome
New international residency in Rome, Italy for ceramicists and visual artists.
The residency includes a semi-private equipped studio, shared apartments in the historical center of Rome, and technical assistance in procuring materials for their work, firings, etc., advice on museums, galleries and sites in Rome and beyond. Artists have the opportunity to focus on their art, whether it be creating a new body of work, expanding a well-established oeuvre or allowing themselves to draw inspiration from their surroundings and the centuries of culture that define the eternal city. In addition, they will have access to the wealth of galleries and exhibitions in Rome and beyond. Weekly group meals and optional excursions encourage cultural exchange amongst the arts. A final group exhibition presents the work produced during the residency.
There is still one spot available for the 6-week residency from 15 February-30 March. If you are interested, please apply as soon as possible. In addition to the 6-week residency posted for 16 May-28 June, this summer, we are also offering month-long residencies in July and August. There is also a possibility of a residency in the countryside near Bracciano. Please apply at least 2 months in advance. Applications will be considered as they are received.
