Benefits to artists
Fees and financial support
The residency has no fees for the artists, except rent of the accommodation. Grants to artists can be provided only in certain projects. Artists coming through the open call to work on their own projects will be expected to pay their own costs. More information on grants in specific projects, please request more information by email. Practically we aim to provide as much other benefits and opportunities to all our guest artists and researchers as possible.
Connections to local institutions, companies and artists
The residency work group is collaborating with several institutions, NGO’s, galleries, festivals, venues, record labels, cinema production companies and artists in Cyprus and Europe. When artists or researchers come to the residency, we provide possibilities to meet and open possibilities with the local artists and institutions.
During their stay at the residency, artists and researchers are facilitated also to meet local artists, musician, filmmakers, writers, event organisers etc. through our contact network.
Workshops and sharing knowledge
We also organise possibilities to conduct workshops, which is a way to make money and share the artist’s work and knowledge. We are happy to help in facilitating the workshops and participate in setting them up and advertising. We can also share our knowledge in the disciplines we work in.
Performance and exhibition space
Apart from the mountain residency, we run a studio/rehearsal space in Limassol, which can be used by the residency artists as a performance or exhibitions space, as well rehearsal studio for music, performance, theatre etc. More info: limassol.kammari.org.
