Open Call for International Artists - Spring/Summer 2019

- Description of residency program
Aria Residency is a not-for-profit space which provides artists, curators, writers, and researchers the opportunity to live and create work in Tehran. By providing the accommodation and studio for Iranian and international residents, Aria aims to extend the mobility inside the country and outside and engage the local artists with the non-Iranian ones for a specific period of time. This will create the more cultural exchange and dialogue for both sides and will develop the Iranian contemporary art and culture. Aria offers a community in which the residents can participate and connect to the art scene, so they can get the most out of their stay.

- Duration of residency
International artists from most countries can get the visa easily on their arrival in Tehran for duration of one month.

- Space and Servises
Aria Residency has three rooms to accommodate artist, a shared studio for them to work, two toilettes and one bathroom to be shared. A fully equipped kitchen is there for artists to cook and eat. The studio is equipped with the basic tools and artists will benefit from curatorial guides of Iranian art masters and studio visits. An open studio will be organized for the artists to share their experience while their stay. There is also a small cute café in the building’s backyard where artists can buy food or drinks. Free pick up from the airport will be provided for artists on their arrival.

- Fees and support
Send an email to info@aria-residency for residency costs.
Aria has no funding available in Iran and is unable to support any financial cost for accommodation, the stipend for living expenses or airfare. Artists are expected to be able to pay for their costs or seek grants or fund from arts organizations to cover their residency. Once accepted, Aria will provide letters of support to assist with grant applications.
