There are also some bilateral agreements with e. g. the USA, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the Visegrad fund which can support the artist's residence.
In case of financially demanding projects, artists or curators are recommended to seek for individual grant support.
Artists in residence are responsible for all other expenses – material, travel a transport costs, meals&IE.
MeetFactory is a non-profit international center for contemporary art founded in 2001 by the artist David Černý. In the wake of the destructive floods of 2002, MeetFactory was forced to evacuate its previous premises in Holešovice. The project was resurrected three years later in an industrial building in Prague's quarter Smíchov, in a unique space squeezed between a motorway and an active railroad. The program of MeetFactory consists in four dramaturgic departments - music, theatre, gallery and the artist-in-residence program.
The international Artist-in-Residence program is the largest studio program in the Czech Republic. MeetFactory facilitates fifteen studios, which annually host over thirty visual artists, curators, musicians, theatre directors or writers. We foster the involvement of our artists in residence not only within the programming of MeetFactory, but also in the context of the Czech and Central European art scenes.
A participation in monthly open studios is required. Artists in residence are vividly involved in further programming of the MeetFactory, participating on events throughout the building. They will receive studio visits from critics, writers and curators.
MeetFactory is renting two apartments in a close proximity to the building which can be shared by the in-coming artists. Both apartments are reachable by public transport 24 hours per day. We also own 3 separate apartments which are located in a building adjacent to MeetFactory.
MeetFactory is situated on the southern edge of the wider center of Prague, in Prague's quarter Smíchov. MeetFactory is easily accessible by public transport.
