Who can apply

You must be at least 23 or older to apply. We are looking for emerging and professional artists, creatives and interesting individuals widely from different fields and backgrounds. In the selection process, an emphasis is put on applicant’s motivation, creativity and suitability to the program.

There is no requirement for a project proposal in the application, as when working in the creative field, your subjects, interests and working methods tend to change and evolve along the way.

Artist duos are also welcome to apply. Non-artist spouses, partners and friends are welcome as short-term guests only. Please note that children are not permitted in the residency.

Silence Awareness Existence is a thematic residency program for artists and deep minds attuned to the theme. The program brings together selected international artists, writers and creative professionals, widely from different mediums and backgrounds.

The residency can be dedicated for inner reflection and development, concentrating intensively on your work, as well as for exchanging thoughts and approaches with the fellow residents. As the focus at Arteles is on creative freedom and personal development, no predetermined project plan is required.

In order to help you stay present, the program structure includes some special features, such as internet-free time, silent (non-speaking) days and the possibility to follow a daily meditation routine in a space reserved for the purpose.
