People worldwide are affected by the coronavirus. Unfortunately, there are many victims. We sympathise with them and their loved ones and are full of appreciation for anyone involved in care and in combating this terrible suffering.
We cannot yet say when the circumstances will allow for an artist residency again. However, we have decided to follow through with the official opening of our new exhibition space, the Razklon Gallery, a roadside showcase. The isolated location of the showcase naturally provides a safe place in the current corona crisis; located in the mids of nature it exists far away from the virus and the crowds. To add extra visibility, all works in the showcase are carefully documented and published online. This way, we hope to continue functioning as an art platform, hosting artists from all around the world.
We are currently accepting proposals! For more info, see Razklon.
AiR programmes, partly funded by the foundation
Periodically, we organise an artist-in-residency programme partly funded by the foundation. We say partly because we do expect a small financial contribution from the artist (€40 per week) towards food, petrol and use of the facilities. Accommodation and studio space are provided free of charge.
Artists on a low income can receive a discount on their contribution by volunteering for the foundation one week before or after the residency to help set or tidy up (depending on availability).
Currently, there is no open call.
To find out more, please watch this space for the next open call or subscribe to our newsletter.
Self-directed residencies, funded by the artist
It is also possible for artists to come on their own accord and do a self-funded, independent residency in Tsarino. Artists are welcome throughout the year, depending on the availability of foundation members.
Please note that due to COVID-19 we do not currently recommend travelling to Tsarino, however, this may change — if you would like to do a residency with us please inform yourself about the current situation regarding COVID-19 in Bulgaria and send us an email to discuss the possibilities.
We charge per week for the use of accommodation, studio space, and the facilities. The amount will be dependent on the artist's requirements and will be agreed before the commencement of the residency.
For artists on a low income, there are opportunities to receive a discount through volunteer work. The nature of this work and the discounted amount will be agreed prior to the residency. Drop us a line to discuss possibilities, as there are many!
