Name of Residency: Versa~Versa Foundation Residency Fellowship

Vice~Versa offers Fellowships in its Artist-in-Residencey programs which are dedicated in supporting artists regionally, nationally and internationally and promoting contemporary art, infusing a regional character within a national and international perspective. The residencies constituted are places where artists work, conduct research and resulting exhibitions introduce the general public to a composition of contemporary art practices by artists from around the world.

The residency program is an all expense paid, which covers studio space, a cash stipend of $250 per month, lodge and board. Art supplies, flight tickets from artist city/country, transportation and shipping to or from the program are not covered.

Two to four works will be selected from the works completed at the residency for the Foundation’s collection. Curators and writers have to delineate and outline in their proposal, as to how their work accomplished at the residency will benefit Goa, the Arts and the Foundation. The works done during the residency may be documented and published in the annual primer/volume of Vice~Versa and/or on our website.
