Description of the residency program
TRACTOR international residency offers you a place and the luxury of uninterrupted time for individual growth, exploration and/or experimentation within your existing artistic practice.

This programme invites all those creative minds who either, wish to change their environment for a couple of weeks and find inspiration in a new surrounding or simple hunger for some undisturbed time to develop or finish up a body of work; where needed TRACTOR guests also get all the assistance required to develop the committed project.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
We can provide a wide range of equipment and/or materials depending on the specific needs and complexity of the planned work. This includes foundry for small sculptures, ceramic studio, silk-screen printing equipment ...

Since its foundation in 2012, our residency programs have been welcoming artists from every continent in several different artistic disciplines. Writers, painters, sculptors, photographers even musicians and dancers have all benefited from the relaxed and encouraging atmosphere of the programme.

D’CLINIC was established in Lendava, Slovenia, and when it moved to the Hungarian city of Zalaegerszeg in 2015 it was one of the first artist-run residency programs in this part of Europe. The town itself is situated near the Austrian and Slovenian border and only 3 hours from all the major cities of this extravagant European region embracing 5 countries: Budapest, Vienna, Ljubljana, Bratislava, and Zagreb.

Being the county capital, Zalaegerszeg can offer the resources and motivation needed to keep your creative flow. The town is also home to several museums, an Art School and other institutions that you are welcome to collaborate with; and last but not least, a small but enthusiastic art-loving community who takes special care of our guest artists.
