Fees and support
Once we recive the application form with the project and all the residency specifications, we prepare a budget for the artist. These specifications include: Which and how many studios does the artist want to work in, materials, accomodation, final exhibition or open studio, etc... Artists have to be clear with these specifications in the application form.
Artists are expected to cover the full residency fee. Some grants or scholarships might be granted upon availability.
R.A.R.O can provide acceptance letters or other kind of documentation needed by the artists to apply for grants or any other kind of financial aids elsewhere.   Since our residency fees depend on these specific aspects, these fees may vary on case to case. However our residencies are in a range of USD $1400. Some times even lower than that, but very unlikely to be higher.
To give a precise residency fee, the artist have to send us the application form first. 

Expectations towards the artist
Artists are invited but no required to give talks or workshops in their field of knowledge to the local artistic community. At the end of the residency, artists will have to present their work to the local audience.
Artists are expected to donate to R.A.R.O a 5 to 10% of their final production in the residency.
