Artist Residencies

Welcome to the open database of current Polish artistic residencies and their resulting artworks. It is operated by the National Centre for Culture Poland; it was created in partnership with A-I-R Laboratory Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle. Our aim is to provide consistent information about artist residency opportunities in Poland, as well as to foster cooperation between artistic institutions through sharing knowledge and experience.
