The purpose of the ART-IN-RES programme is to promote cultural mobility, networking and competence development of residents and management of host organisations in order to strengthen their knowledge and skills suitable for their further development and professional life.

By providing artists’ residencies, the ART-IN-RES programme aims to support creative process and emergence of new projects. With the managers’ residencies, it offers space and time for intensive concentrated work on development, evaluation or long-term planning of cultural projects or organisations. 


The call is for residencies taking place from 1 March to 30 November 2024, lasting from 1 to 3 weeks for artists’ residencies and from 3 to 5 days for managers’ residencies in a selected host organisation.

The support of selected residents is intended for reimbursement of personal costs associated with the residency (such as transportation, meals, daily expenses) and as a contribution to creative activity.

As part of the aforementioned support, host organisation shall provide residents with accommodation, facilities for creative activities, and ensure a successful course of the residency.

Additional services or support of other persons beyond the scope are subject to an individual agreement between the residents and the host organisation, possibly with a financial participation of the residents.
