Spring and summer self-funded residencies in Rome, Italy at c.r.e.t.a. rome
Let yourself be inspired by the Eternal City during a residency in the historical center of Rome.
The Italian word for clay, creta, seemed perfect to express our commitment to creating an international reference point for ceramics and the arts in the eternal city of Rome. Moreover, taken as an acronym, it spells out our main activities: ceramics, residencies, exhibitions, teaching and the arts. We are located in the mid 16th-century Palazzo Delfini in the historical center of Rome, just blocks from the Capitoline Hill on one side and the Pantheon on the other.
We offer artist residencies for ceramicists and visual artists for periods of 6 weeks or 3 months. For the months of July and August, we will also be offering month-long residencies. The residency includes a semi-private equipped studio, shared apartments with private bedrooms in the historical center of Rome, and technical assistance in procuring materials for their work, firings, etc., advice on museums, galleries and sites in Rome and beyond.
In July and August, we are also offering a residency in the countyside near Bracciano, with private accommodation in a one-bedroom house with a garden and a private studio.
Artists have the opportunity to focus on their art, whether it be creating a new body of work, expanding a well-established oeuvre or allowing themselves to draw inspiration from their surroundings and the centuries of culture that define the eternal city. In addition, they will have access to the wealth of galleries and exhibitions in Rome and beyond. .
A selection committee composed of artists, art critics and historians carefully evaluates applicants based on their artistic experience, merit and project proposal.
