The application period for Spring 2015 Artist in Residence program is now open. 33OC seeks proposals from international professional artists interested in working within the Toffia environment for a one month period.
33OC Artist Residency program was developed to become a space & community where international artists can share places, experiences and sensibilities. The aim of the residency is to challenge perceptions about how art is made and integrated in everyday life, by devising unconventional scenarios for introducing ideas into the public realm.
The program offers artists the opportunity to confront new ideas or experiment with their work and the particular territory of Sabina region. We wish to give artists the opportunity to find new ways of interaction between art, society and the territory.
The residency is hosted within a renovated 13th Century church/theatre building, which also hosts various cultural activities for the community (theater, concerts and various classes.) Located in Toffia – a small and quiet medieval hilltop village in the middle of Sabina, an olive oil producing area about 60km NE of Rome, Italy.
Eligibility: The residency is open to individual professional artists at any stage of their career, working in visual arts, photography, film & video, media arts, performing arts, music and literature. We particularly encourage applications from artists interested in working with the particular cultural and geographic characteristics of Toffia or Sabina region.
Costs & Support: 33OC is a nonprofit organization currently functioning without any external financing. At the moment we can continue to host artists only on a fee basis.The cost per artist/month is: 250 Euros
