Deadline: Open call

Athena Standards Residency is accepting applications for its 2018 residency sessions in Athens, Greece!

The Athena Standards Residency is open year round, with residency periods of one to twelve months.

Description of residency program
Athena Standards Residency was born of the idea that the city of Athens offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience simultaneously the vibrant urban culture of a contemporary city and the rich history of an ancient cosmopolitan center. With the intention of creating a network of international and local artists, the residency program aims to encourage a dialogue with the local art scene.

Duration of residency
The Athena Standards Residency is open year round, with residency periods of one to twelve months. We are currently accepting applications for all sessions May 2018- May 2019, on a rolling basis.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
we invite emerging and established artists with a dedicated studio practice to apply. We are able to accommodate painters, mixed media & installation artists, photographers with a studio practice and printmakers who do not require the use of a press. The studio building has WIFI and we can accept video and sound artists who work primarily on their laptops.

Accommodation
The residency fee includes shared housing in Athens, with another residency artist, and full access to the Athena Standards Studio. The studio building is keypad entry, and staffed by the Studio Manager on weekdays, and a security guard in the evenings. 

Studio/ workspace
The residency program provides the artists with an open format studio space in a repurposed commercial building, located in a bustling neighborhood of coffee shops, bars and restaurants and conveniently situated next to the Kato Patissia Metro stop. The studio boasts abundant natural light, and includes such amenities as a communal workspace/ woodshop, storage for works in progress, a kitchenette and lounge.

Fees and support
The cost of the residency program is 1500 Euro for a one month period. Artists that choose to stay for more than one month receive a discounted rate of 10% off the second and third consecutive month and 20% off the fourth and subsequent months. We encourage artists to consider staying more than one month in order to gain a deeper understanding of Athens as a cultural hub.

Expectations towards the artist
Additionally, a series of visiting artist talks of various practitioners of the cultural industry have been organized so that by the end of their stay in Athens the ASR residents will have experienced a comprehensive consultancy regarding their practice. The residency program concludes with an open studio event in which members of the artistic community are invited to tour the studios and see the final works. Uniquely, at this time we are also able to offer artists-in-residence the opportunity to curate an exhibition/performance/installation on the floors of the studio building that have yet to be renovated.
