Lucy Art Residency

Name of Residency: Lucy Art Residency

The program offers the opportunity for an artist based in Europe and the Mediterranean whose main practice is photography focused to spend two weeks in Kavala, Greece. It is free to apply and the selected artist will have the opportunity to live and work in the coastal city in the north of Greece with transportation, accommodation and subsistence covered.



WHAT DOES THE RESIDENCY OFFER?                             .
The selected artist will be offered free accommodation in the five star Lucy Hotel in Kavala. In addition to that the artist’s return trip from his/her country of residence is covered, as well as three meals a day at the hotel premises. Furthermore, a per diem and an artist fee for the production of one artwork will be provided. Opportunities to meet with local art organisations will be encouraged.
The goal of this residency is to give the artist two weeks of free time to explore Kavala and the regions around the city. During the residency, the artist will be asked to do a public talk in a cultural centre in the city. In addition to that, the artist will be commissioned to produce one new artwork that will be part of the archive of the residency, accessible to the visitors of the hotel as well as the future residents.
