The open call for a residency is aimed at artists at any stage of their careers who want to spend a period of time living and working in Belgrade, Serbia. Our Centre offers a calm place to live and work and a professional support in different areas of visual arts.

It is situated in a spacious apartment of 100 sqm, consisting of 2 private (residential) rooms, common studio with a library, kitchen, two bathrooms and a balcony.  It is fully equipped for short and long term residencies and has all the essential facilities. Residents can use any equipment available such as printers, scanners, cameras, projetors and other.

The residency fees:
130€ per week for the big room.
