Our residency program provides creative artists across disciplines, with both emerging and established careers, with the opportunity to create work in a new context, to establish professional contacts and standards and to engage with the community.
Artists are hosted at Palazzo del Gatto, in the medieval village of Casaprota, (Sabine region, in the centre of Italy). They have access to studio and working spaces, located inside the Palazzo and in the large garden with a fantastic inspirational landscape.
Inside the Palazzo, there are four bedrooms, single and double, and three bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining room, two living rooms, the original storeroom (now a multifunctional space and study hall), and a wine cavern.
The nearby municipal theatre is available for performers, as well as the adjacent exhibition hall.
During their residency, artists are asked to develop a project that establishes a relationship with the territory and/or its inhabitants. Artists have opportunities to interact with locals and to visit the surroundings. At the end of the residency works are exhibited to the community.
Sabinarti also welcomes international groups of artists already involved in a joint project to work together (9 people max.).
SabinARTi Cultural Association was created in 2013, by a group of “new residents” in the rural region of Sabina (center of Italy, 60km north of Rome). These people moved to the country from different experiences all around the world, attracted by the beauty, the culture, the wildness, the magic and the uniqueness of this ancient region, and made it their hometown.
SabinARTi artist-in-residence program, hosted at the association headquarters, the historical “”Palazzo del Gatto””, aims:
- to support creation and exploration in the arts, while experimenting the interaction between a historical/rural environment and the vision of contemporary art;
- to promote the historically significant Sabina region, while providing the local population with an opportunity to engage in a cultural exchange with the international art system;
- to expand the network of local artists encouraging the exchange of experiences with international peers.
SabinARTi also organizes international architectural workshops to develop micro projects, with the participation of inhabitants, students and artists, with the goal of reactivating “energy” in focal points of the territory (rehabilitating abandoned buildings, “highlighting” traditional spots with sculptures or land art, etc.).
