Brief description of residency program

A7ROOMS is situated in Banska Bystrica, central Slovakia. Its aim is to provide conditions and support for creative work of visual artists from around the world. We offer accommodation, atelier and exhibition space. We provide promotion and publicity, guidance through local art scene and at the end of the residency we organise the exhibition.

We do not provide any funding at this moment; all residency related expenses are to be paid by the artist. However, we offer consulting and guidance with finding possible funding resources for A7ROOMS residency program.

Artists live in a single room of an apartment with shared kitchen and bathroom. The apartment is located in a quiet location in a walking distance from the atelier and all the important spots in the town. We can also provide a bicycle.

The town itself is an important cultural, economic and historical nod in central Slovakia. It is home to Academy of Arts, Zahrada – independent art centre, regional gallery, music clubs and several independent cultural initiatives. Downtown is rather small but charming and with an easy bus connection artists can visit the picturesque neighbouring villages. Surrounding of the town is green and mountainous, perfect for summer as well as winter outdoor activities.
