Deadline: 15/12/2023 - 15/01/2024

Studio ALTA is opening three programmes in the 2024 artist residency series. Each is intended for a different phase and form of artistic processes.

House of Concentration may be inhabited by individuals and collectives looking for space and technical support to develop works in performing arts.

House of Research has been conceived as a temporary cohabitation of several artists. The purpose is to provide space for artistic research, development of concepts, and immersion into a specific topic. What’s new this year is the opportunity to transform an existing artwork into a new form.

The last in the trio is the House of Rest. Designed as a support structure emphasising the value of self-care, it is open to all colleagues from independent sector.

10–21 June 2024

House of Research is a 12-day residency programme conceived as a shared space and laboratory for four individual artists and their research. The residency is intended primarily for projects in the initial stages of research, experimentation, and development. It offers an opportunity for deeper immersion (or, conversely, emergence) into art research, functioning as a means of searching for new levels in one’s own art practice.

This year, one can bring to the House of Research an existing finished work (a play, installation, object, video, etc.) and focus on its re-examination and transformation into a different form. It is thus possible, for example, to bring a play and explore ways to design a workshop, or create text, performance-lecture, etc. based on it.

House of Research offers the guests access to a shared studio, space for individual work, and facilitate three meetings centred on exchange of knowledge and experiences within the group.

At the end of the residency, a small presentation will be prepared for the public, the form of which will be based on participants’ needs and choice.



House of Research shall provide the following:

  • Space for individual* four artists from different fields of art
  • Honorarium in the amount of CZK 12,000
  • Accommodation and transportation for participants from outside of Prague
  • Shared studio
  • Technical support
  • Production support

* with regard to allocated resources, we prefer individual artists; nevertheless, we may also accept duos or small collectives

5 days during March – November

House of Rest is a residency spa intended for colleagues who work in arts management in the Czech Republic and who may feel overwhelmed, pressured by the constant need for production, or who are just looking for a calm zone to channel their thoughts. The House of Rest may become the reason to slowdown, recalibrate one’s own creative practice, a space for idling and taking care of oneself, a vacuum. This residency does not require output or participation in any activities.

The guests at the House of Rest will be selected by lottery, as it is not up to us, or anyone else, to decide who actually needs rest. We all need it. Nevertheless, we would like to dedicate our space and resources intended for the House of Rest primarily to our colleagues from arts management industry. Only those who work in independent sector (full time or part time) in production, dramaturgy, art curation, PR, technical and other supporting artistic professions, and work (primarily or partially) in the Czech Republic will be invited to apply for the lottery.

Two guests will be selected in total; at least one spot will be reserved for applicants working outside of Prague. The location and time (5 nights between March – November) of the House of Rest residency will be the guests’ choice. It could be in the countryside or in the city; close to home or on the opposite side of the country.

  • Space for two participants working in arts management
  • Honorarium in the amount of CZK 6,000
