This consortium program is a response to the interest of contemporary artists whose career and network are beyond countries boundaries. Instead of defining the Residency by countries, we have designed the Residency around the regional and cultural distinctions of the geographical zone. CAI staff will help facilitate artists’ visits and exhibitions to multiple countries/cities, to experience the culture of each location, to get a wide exposure of their work within the region and to advance their artistic careers.

GEOGRAPHICAL ADVANTAGES
