Snehta wants to open its doors to 12 contemporary art practitioners to live and work in Athens for two months during the winter, spring and summer periods in 2019 and 2020
*There are four subsequent deadlines for each residency period
October – November (Deadline 17 June 2019 12:00 pm)

March – April (Deadline 17 November 2019, 12:00 pm)

An established Athens-based curator will work with each artist throughout their stay and support their research and the realisation of their exhibition.
Snehta is supported by Outset Contemporary Art Fund (Greece). Additionally for the first time the program will join forces with Onassis Air residency program in Athens. The two programs will share their resources such as work-spaces, equipment, as well as program specific activities (workshops, talks, screenings, and other public events).
The goal is to create a common community of peers between the two programs. Also, more thematic and contextual activities will include a joint collaboration of both program with the Athens School of Fine Art, co-curation of the 2nd episode of the Expanded Publishing Workshop Series, as well as other joint actions and experiments.
There is an artist fee of 870 EUR per month plus a 100 EUR deposit.
