33OC Artist in Residency program is a community & space 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 residency is conceived of as a regenerative intercultural meeting place, aimed particularly at international artists who are enthusiastic about working within the Toffia environment, and who are energetic about making connections in this context. The residency is an opportunity for artists to confront new ideas or experiment with their work and the particular territory of Sabina region. We wish to improve artists’ ability to pay attention to constructed and natural environment, eventually, to find new ways of interaction between art, society and the territory. The residency is open to individual artists at any stage of their professional career, working in visual arts, photography, film & video, media arts, performing arts, music and literature. We are particularly interested in artists interested in engaging the local community and/or working with the particular cultural and geographic characteristics of Toffia and Sabina region.

At the beginning of the residency artists will have the opportunity to introduce themselves to the community and fellow artists with an informal presentation of their previous work. Each residency period concludes with an Open Studios day.


Located in Toffia, a small and quiet medieval hilltop village in the middle of Sabina, about 60km NE of Rome, and is hosted within a renovated 13th Century church/theatre building, which also hosts various cultural activities for the community (theater, film screenings, concerts and various classes.)
