Brief description of residency program

Negarestan Art Centre (Yaqoot Residency) holds ten rounds of residency programs every year. Artists will work in studios and workshop spaces in Negarestan Art Centre, located in Qazvin, Iran. A really stimulating and flexible environment will be provided for artists from all around the world to have new experiences and create new works. This event is also an extraordinary chance for those group of artists who are looking for growth in recognition and selling off their most recent artworks, which is of course, beside the advantage of studying on Persian art and culture, a unique opportunity to introduce themselves to the art world in international levels.
The residency will be in "Negarestan Art Centre", "Yaqoot Art Gallery", and also "Bazaar Cistern".
