Brief description of residency program

Living spaces transcend domestic norms becoming a living dialogue between old knowledge and contemporary creativity. We cooperate with local aspiring designers and artisans to design spaces, treating rooms as a blank canvas to explore local aesthetics and contemporary issues. Experience holds a number of events and workshops including yoga classes, furniture design, sewing lessons, concerts, and traditional cooking classes as a way for guests to participate in creative cultural exchanges.

The concept of Experience emerges from the fields of art and design to create a diverse international community while maintaining the spirit of Puglia´s lively capital. The concept of building community is crucial to designing an alternative and sustainable future. Through reimagining history and culture this project aspires to create a supportive platform and network for local and international artists.
