The Open Call for 2019 will be announced in late Autumn 2018.
What does the residency offer? .
The selected artist will be offered free accommodation in the five star Lucy Hotel in Kavala. In addition to that the artist's return trip from his/her country of residence is covered, as well as three meals a day at the hotel premises. Furthermore a per diem and an artist fee for the production of one artwork will be provided. Opportunities to meet with local art organisations will be encouraged.
The concept of the Residency
The goal of the program is to provide artists with free time. Time to think, to interact, to communicate with the people and the city of Kavala. There is no requirement to produce during their stay and no final outcome is expected. The only exception a public talk in a cultural centre in the city that the artist will participate in. Furthermore the artist will be commissioned to produce one new artwork within six months after the end of their program, that will be part of the archive of the residency, accessible to the visitors of the hotel as well as the future residents.
