Listh?ë_s Artist Residency Program is established in 2012. It is basically a self-direct program for creative people who like to be inspired by raw landscape and enjoy quiet. The home like setting gives residency artists a warm and intimacy feeling. We can host 8 artists up to 14 artists at the same period, so, the program also provides an excellent opportunity for international exchange and collaboration.
