Duration of residency
The duration of this residency program is a minimum of one month and a maximum of two months.
The accommodation is not a rental, but a free courtesy for artists in residence memberships. However, artists can opt to rent other accommodation in a different location (for example if they don’t want to live and work in the same space or if they want to be accompanied by friends or relatives). Anyway, in both cases, the artist membership dues are the same.
Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
Our line of work is based on selecting artists coming from different places and creative fields who want to come to PINEA A.I.R. to develop specific projects having into account the context in which they will act, in an exchange of experiences and artistic and cultural increasing climate. We provide workspace, advice & practical tips as well as assistance in local contacts.
