CoCoLab Residency Armenia
CoCoLab Residence is an initiative of the CoCoLab Armenia. Through its diverse local and international partnerships CoCoLab brings together various cultural backgrounds, environments, disciplines and genres.
The residency takes place for 1-6 months in Yerevan while offering opportunities around the country. The residence program focuses on local collaboration and coproduction through building strong connections with the local art scene. Artist talks and public showings of the work-in-progress are part of the residency.
The outcomes expected from the residents depend on their personal and artistic preferences. As a production-oriented program, CoCoLab Residence aims at any form of production including performance, writing, media publication, drawing, photography, film, cooking, planting or a mix of all of this. As part of inception period we support the artists to decide on the preferred format of the final production. The preference is given to engagement with body and movement research.

We offer two CoCoLab studio spaces and several partner venues, including theater stages, art and cultural centers. There is an archive room where you can get information about performing arts. There are also offices where you can use printers and various office supplies.
