Today Art Initiative
Today Art is located in Yerevan and running a residency program since 2014. In 2019 they founded a rural art residency in Armenia, that hosts artists in different regions of Armenia.
Rural Art Residency Armenia's next location is lovely Dilijan. In partnership with Balcony Dilijan, an opportunity is created for international artists who would like to develop their art practice in Dilijan, Tavush Province, one of the most beautiful towns in Armenia.
We would like to hear from artists, curators and writers who need a quiet place by the river, who are interested to discover this magic town and to develop their art practice. They will also have opportunity to make collaborations in local context and meet the community.
The residencies start from 10 of August 2021.
If an artist would like to have an exhibition during the residency, we will discuss it further.
A big room inside of the house, also with an outside yard and a huge co-working balcony.
The artists will have a room, shared kitchen and bathroom. They have 5 rooms and can host 10 artists at once.
