FaveLAB bonds facilitate artists, designers, crafters and art lovers to experience Athens rich cultural tradition and vibrant art scene by offering them live in and working space at a low budget.
Each FaveLAB bond covers Two Weeks of Artist Residency in down town Athens for one person (13 nights/14 days). Artists buy the bond now and visit Athens between Monday 1 June 2020 and Sunday 27 September 2020. Artists do not need to reserve a specific date by buying the bond. Maximum 2 artists share a studio with own room/shared bathroom and kitchen.
Artists may also offer the FAVELAB BOND as a gift to a friend or colleague or extend their stay in Athens by buying more FAVELAB BONDS.
A FAVELAB BOND offers artists:
• Living and working space in downtown Athens (14 days/13 nights).
• Insider tips on Athens cultural events and sites/museums of interest to the resident.
• The option to attend other events or shows organized/curated by FaveLAB and network with other FaveLAB residents and Athenians.
• The option to upgrade the FaveLAB bond into a full Artist Residency programme or workshop.
