Studio Spaces

Studio Spaces

Artist-in-residence programmes are not the only way to stay and work abroad. Did you ever consider a temporary international studio swap? Or renting out your studio while you go abroad so other artists can make use of it? Are you looking for a specific kind of studio on a temporary basis?

Check out this Offered & Wanted Section and see what destinations trigger your imagination... Please note that this concerns mainly working space and not (always) accommodation.

Read here how to proceed to add or remove a studio opportunity from this page.

The Nomad Creatives Projects : International project


I am Severine Grosjean, founder of The Nomad Creative Projects. 
I write you about an international project that maybe it would be intersting for you 

The Nomad Creative Projects is a project, started in 2017 as a trip to hundreds of cities from more than 30 countries on five continents, focused on the visual arts to introduce emerging artists and those already established in the art market. The project to focus on developing international collaborations by gathering a larger team that will spread the coverage of the art activities in other regions of the world, and by creating events with the aim to reflect on current topics related to contemporary arts, the concept and evolution of contemporary art scene, and the latest trends in the arts.
The exhibition is the result of a long-term work I've met over 300 artists in all disciplines from South America,Europe and Africa, Asia, Middle East and North America.
The art travel is a work in progress. The selection of the artists in Africa, Middle East, Asia and North America will be done until july 2019.
The nomadic international exhibition will start in 2020 with your insterest, trust and support. 

The project also stems from the need to meet and connect new cultures and people, new visions and opinions, new perspectives and lifestyles, in order to have a good overview of the art sector at the international scale. Each artist interviewed and involved in this ambitious project was asked to create an unique project An archive of photographs of the creative process and the finished work will compose the catalogue. More or less 50 artists will be present and the international nomadic exhibtion will be produced in all the continents in 5 (or more) art spaces. 
This initiative aims to accelerate, catalyze, connect and communicate civil society initiatives in the field of arts and culture to rethink and build the world as an open, inclusive and democratic space.

You have to know is a work in progress so all the informations sent aren't definitive. We are looking for partners and sponsors ( art spaces, .financial and others: ...) for this ambitious project.
I remain at your proposal for more informations

Best regards,
Severine Grosjean
