Tractor, Shovel, Mixer and Now programmes


D'CLINIC is designed to deliver a supportive community where artists can focus on their own creative practice and/or research, share skills and knowledge, interact or collaborate in an multidisciplinary vibrant environment free from constraint, harshness or formality. The residency has both indoor and outdoor spaces for creativity. The offered working space is flexible, and generally adopted to each artist's individual requirements and needs. Each proposed project is agreed individually.

Artist in residency programs:

Mixer is a cross-disciplinary collaborative “playground”/experiment where artists from different art-forms and cultural backgrounds can engage, share methodologies and inspire each other. With the task of working together artists are given the opportunity to regenerate their creative dynamism, exchange and develop new ideas.

Shovel is an instrument for lifting or scooping loose material; this artists-in-residence framework is to help you focus, gather and re-consider your existing artistic/creative thinking. “Test” your ideas within a new context, within a larger frame than your own studio. This self directed creative programme offers you the comfort of a unique unconventional approach to play with innovative ideas, experiment with different techniques or modes of production and boost your creative network.

Within the framework of Tractor international artist in residency you’ll be exposed to a unique opportunity to explore, expand and/or develop your artistic ambitions. This self directed creative programme offers you the luxury of time, space and freedom to perform new body of work, research innovative ideas, experiment with different techniques or modes of production. Interact with other artists, or use the time as an opportunity to re-turn to yourself and the nature – you choose.

Now: They keep a limited number of residency places reserved for those last minute/quick on their moves artists.


The residency offered within this framework provides professional development opportunities for artists and do not involve gallery-based or other set outcomes or objectives. However, you have the option to share your work threw open studio events, presentations, readings, screening, workshops or lectures. There is also a possibility to show your work within an exhibition at the end of the residency. Interested artists have to discuss this matter with the center in advance.
