Brief description of residency program

The Artists’ House is located in the bathhouse of the former spa hotel Scuol-Tarasp on the banks of the Inn river. It is located amidst the Engadine Dolomites and is far away from everything. Every year up to 30 fine artists, musicians, composers, writers, dancers, performers and scientists from around the world live and work here.

NAIRS provides a space for focused creative work and an environment for constructive dialogue between the scholars. It sees itself as both a place of work and a meeting place. Individual activity and the exchange between various disciplines characterise the atmosphere in the house. Networking and exchange of artistic ideas are connected with an interest in the Engadine mountains and the daily life and culture of their inhabitants. NAIRS is a place for artistic production, reflection and exploration, and simultaneously makes the contact between artists of different disciplines, critics and the audience possible.

Application Deadline for February until the end of November 2020 is 30 April 2019.
