The residency is open between May and October each year to artists working in the field of printmaking, illustration, drawing, painting, photography, and calligraphy. It could also be suitable for writers, designers, or researchers.
NoPoint offers three different types of residency programs:
Open Call Residents
Artists apply for the Open Call during a short period of time, presenting a project or an idea that they would like to develop at NoPoint. The invited residents are free of costs for their residential stay but donate part of their work to the Atelier in order to support its work and maintenance.
Create It Residents
These residential programs aim to encourage experimentation, creation, exchange, and personal development on sight. They are created for people who want to come and live here for a little while, to get inspired and work on their project at NoPoint. Duration is between one week and a month. Artists would have to cover the costs for their stay. Applications are accepted throughout the whole year.
Print It Residents
Usually, very short residency programs (2 to 5-days long), created for those who already have a developed project and need equipment to print it. Such residency is also suitable for people interested in getting familiar with screen or risograph printing techniques.
How to apply
To apply you should send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that includes the following information:
- Brief description of the project that you want to develop during your residential stay
- Share why you want to visit NoPoint
- Add a small portfolio and short biography
