2018 International residencies at C.R.E.T.A. rome in Rome, Italy

c.r.e.t.a. rome’ offers an international self-funded residency program.

Description of residency program
The non-profit organization ‘c.r.e.t.a. rome’ offers an international self-funded residency program in Rome, Italy. The Italian word for clay 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. 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.

Duration of residency
We offer artist residencies for ceramic artists and visual artists for periods of 4 or 5 weeks. The residency periods can be combined, but the residency cannot exceed 90 days (for non-EU citizens).

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
All visual artists are encouraged to apply. The studios are equipped in particular for ceramic artists, but we have hosted fiber artists, graphic artists, painters as well as writers and photographers. We find that the range of disciplines adds a richness to the experience. We provide some technical support, help in procuring materials for your work, firings, etc., advice on museums, galleries and sites in Rome and beyond.

Accommodation
Housing is in the historic center of Rome or just across the river in trendy Trastevere. Apartments are shared or private and have kitchens. Each artist has a private room. Linens and towels are provided. Accommodation is within walking distance of the c.r.e.t.a. rome studio.

Studio/workspace
The studio is 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. Two to four artists in residency share the studio space. Each artist is provided with wall space, a table and shelving units. For ceramic artists, there are wheels, kilns and a range of ceramic tools as well as access to clay, glazes and raw materials.

Fees
The cost of a 5-week residency in the historic center of Rome is €3000; for a month-long residency, the cost is €2500. We do not currently have fellowships, but if accepted, we can provide documentation for applying for outside funding.

Expectations of the artist
We request that the artists speak briefly about their work during an ‘open studio’ event during their residency period. Artists are encouraged to submit a proposal for inclusion in a final group exhibition to display the work created during the residency period (optional). For visual artists, the donation of one piece is requested (optional).
