Center 424 - Belgrade artist in residence

General information

Brief description of organisation

Belgrade AIR is a program as part of the Center424 non-profit artist-run organization that supports artists, curators and martial artists via one-week to three-month residencies in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. Residency programs aim to foster cultural exchange between artists from different disciplines, create a dialogue and encourage possible collaboration.

Visits to art galleries, museums and artists’ studios will be arranged to facilitate the interaction of international and local art practitioners.

Depending on the project, events, workshops, exhibitions and art-focused talks can be organized in our venue, Center 424.

Our organization was established in 2012 and has since hosted various artists from all over the world.

We are looking to collaborate with other like-minded arts organizations in Europe. This sustainable partnership could lead to joint art projects and foster the mobility of local talents by way of exchange and promotion abroad/locally.

Getting around with a map

You can download app maps.me, that is only one that will show building numbers, and has both Latin and Cyrillic alphabet. Most of the street names are in the Cyrillic alphabet so you can compare names. Also, google maps doesn’t show street numbers correctly so it can confuse you, and maps.me app shows street numbers.
