Art Residency

Τhe G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation Research Residency Program
aims to bring together creative people
in a collective learning experience.

The G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation announces a new Research Residency Program, to be inaugurated in October 2022. The call addresses Greek professionals from the field of visual art and culture whose work is based on research, experimentation and collaborations: visual artists, curators, activists, architects, researchers, poets, writers, translators, academics. The 2022 Residency will host 8-10 residents, is fully funded, and will take place in Agios Nikolaos, Crete from October 15-22, 2022.

The G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation is a non-profit cultural organization. Our mission is to support and promote contemporary art and culture and to aid lifelong learning and the transmission of knowledge to future generations. Driven by our mission, and given the challenges faced by cultural professionals at the moment, after two years of silence and immobility, our goal with the launch of the Residency Program is to create a unique experience by providing space for coexistence.

The Residency aspires to create a new platform for collective learning, to take place over the course of a week, full of discussions, reflections, workshops, and on-site research. We believe that openness to multiple experiences – although often difficult in practice – is necessary for continuous development, therefore we aim to develop networks of synergy and cooperation, and to bring together professionals from the field of art and culture.

Applications are open until Saturday, August 20, 2022, 23:59. The application can be completed either in Greek or in English. Before starting your application, please read the RESIDENCY DESCRIPTION carefully.
