Brief description of residency program

AiRE offers time and space for working, reflecting and processing ideas. It also serves as a platform for dialog and exchange between the visiting residents and the local community.

The house has spacious and luminous private rooms with a double bed, work desk, closet, and WiFi connection. Common spaces, shared with other permanent and temporary residents, include living room, kitchen, dining room, bathroom and a wide terrace with ocean view.

AiRE cooperates with local cultural centers and organizations, which allows the visiting residents the use of different working, exhibiting, lecturing and workshop spaces depending on the project.

Applicants are asked to note their preferred time of stay on the application form. The minimum residency period is 2 weeks and maximum of 3 months.

We will publish a new Open Call on our website in January 2019.
