Soshenko 33 Residency Program


Soshenko 33 consists of art workshops located in a villa on the northern outskirts of Kyiv, originally founded in 1949 as a "House of Creativity" for artists. In the Soviet art system, this was analogous to modern residency programs. Since the 1960s, the building has functioned as creative workshops for graduate students and was part of the USSR Academy of Arts. At the moment it is an alternative space of the National Academy of Fine Arts of Ukraine. Soshenko 33 is an educational and artistic center that includes a program of art residencies.

The Soshenko 33 residency program focuses on research-based art practices related to education, urbanism, ecology, socially engaged art, collaboration with local artists and researchers, and engaging with local communities.

The residency is located on the northern outskirts of Kyiv, in a green area. It is a two-storey villa built in 1949 with an authentic interior. The house is surrounded by an old orchard, and a private residential area is nearby. There is a direct commute to the city center.
