Since its inception in 1993, Res Artis has organised over 26 conferences all over the world in partnership with our generous hosts. These hosts include Res Artis members or other partner organisations in the arts and cultural sector.

Over the years, Res Artis conferences have enabled our network to build new partnerships and forge connections. The conferences provide the entire Res Artis community with the opportunity to lend its voice to support the development of the artist residency field, while jointly discussing agendas, missions, and objectives from our sector.

Previously, Res Artis offered  “General Meeting” – a larger worldwide meeting held approximately every two years; and the somewhat smaller “Regional Meeting” – where members met around a geographical interest.

In 2015 we re-evaluated our meeting strategy and decided to dissolve our former meeting categories and implement more flexible and all-encompassing Res Artis conference models. This has opened up more opportunities to organise different scale meetings in the years ahead and offers greater accessibility for our members.
