The ART-IN-RES, a residency programme supporting residencies in contemporary theatre, dance, and other performing arts genres, opens its third annual call. The programme’s financial and administrative support is intended for residents as well as host organisations.


Artists, culture managers, and other culture professionals from the Czech Republic and abroad working in contemporary theatre, dance, and other performing arts genres can apply to the programme.

Based on this open call, individual projects (1-2 artists), group projects (3-8 artists), as well as managers’ residencies (3-5 people) will be supported. In 2023, we plan to support around 10 projects by providing residencies.


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 purpose of the ART-IN-RES programme is to promote cultural mobility and networking, experience-building, knowledge exchange and skills development of all those involved in the arts residencies.


The call is for residencies taking place from 1 March to 30 November 2023, lasting from 1 to 3 weeks for artists’ residencies and from 3 to 5 days for managers’ residencies in a selected host organisation.


Financial support is intended for residents and host organisations as follows:

  • residents support: CZK 1,500 (€ 60) / person / day
  • support of host organisations: fixed amount of CZK 1,000 (€ 40) / day + CZK 400 (€ 16) / person / day

The support of selected residents (artists/managers) 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.


Residents shall make output from their residency available to the public, documenting it in a final report and with photographs.

  • Artists’ residency: such as a public presentation of residents’ work-in-progress or a public intervention in space followed by a discussion with the public 
  • Managers’ residency: such as a presentation of the residents’ organisation to the public or the host organisation’s wider community, informing them about the progress and conclusions from the residency
