The Art Prospect Network Residency program provides opportunities for artists and curators to conduct research, create new work, and collaborate with the local arts community in partnership with arts organizations in partner countries. Fifty six artists and curators from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan participated in the residency program in 2017-2018 and twelve US artists in 2021-2022.
In 2023, the Art Prospect Network Residency program supports residencies for eighteen artists and curators from USA and the Art Prospect Network countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan) focusing on exchange and collaboration in the field of socially engaged art and/or public art. Selected from an open call, the Art Prospect Network Residency Fellows will collaborate with host organizations from the Art Prospect Network countries.
Each Art Prospect Network partner offers a one-month residency to participate in a collaborative project, such as a public art festival or event, lead skill sharing programs, and/or conduct an independent project. Participants and host organizations work together to define the residency goals and structure based on their reciprocal interests, needs and strengths.
