33 Officina Creativa (33OC) Artist Residency program was developed to become a space & community where international artists can share spaces, experiences, and sensibilities. Conceived of as a regenerative intercultural meeting place, the residency is aimed at international artists who are enthusiastic about working within Toffia’s environment.
The residency is open to professional artists at any stage of their career, working in visual arts, photography, film & media arts, performing arts, music, and literature. Each residency period concludes with an Open Studios day.
The residency is hosted within a deconsecrated 13th Century church (currently a small theatre) and the adjacent building, which also hosts various cultural activities for the community (theater, film screenings, concerts, and workshops).
33 Officina Creativa (33OC) is a young nonprofit cultural association based in Toffia, Italy with the aims of diffusing contemporary art and preserving local cultural heritage, especially amongst the younger generations. This is achieved through international artistic exchanges and promotion activities that enable the inclusion of the territory in which the association operates into a broader cultural horizon.
33OC is a cultural collective which hosts an international Artist Residency program and produces theatre and music performances, film programs, workshops, classes, and other public programs. It aims to operate as a regenerative social and cultural meeting place while becoming a discussion platform for artistic production.
Our goal is to preserve the diversity of nature and culture of Sabina region and to prevent the museification of Toffia – a small and quiet medieval hilltop village in the middle of Sabina – by offering a shared place of cultural and social exploration for national and international artists, the local community and people from various cultural fields.
