Villa Exarcheia Residency
The Villa Exarcheia Residency is situated in the neighbourhood of Neapoli-Exarchia just fifteen minutes by foot from Athens center. The residency provides time and space for academics and creatives to immerse themselves in Athenian life and perfect their practice. We recognise that different artists have different needs so we provide three different types of residency packages :
Light Residency which is research driven
Full Residency which encourages technical and theoretical research and features a one-month exhibition
The “Locals Only” residency designed to assist and encourage Greek artists and students
An Athens-based curator works with each resident individually, providing support for research, practice and onsite community projects. The curator will be in discussion with the artists throughout their residency in order to provide a rounded collaboration. Technical assistance and advice is provided and artists are encouraged to experiment with new materials and methods.
Proposals for this opportunity are reviewed on a rolling basis. We welcome couples, teams of curators and artists. Please be sure to specify in your application if you wish to apply as a team and the names of any and all collaborators. The program currently features accommodations for up to three residents at a time. Each year, at least one artist or curator is invited for a one month residency in exchange for a public workshop or presentation.
If you plan to apply for outside funding, we recommend that you apply for the residency at least three to five months so that we might assist you. A list of funding bodies is provided. Please carefully read all the documents below before applying to the Villa Exarchia Residency.
