The residency program offers combined living and working spaces with private bedrooms for 1, 2 or 3 persons. The accommodations and workshops are situated in the former administrative offices of an old school (teachers' room, rector’s, student council room, classrooms, etc.).

On the school grounds there are further opportunities: large walls, fields and forests, the Neckar valley and the river itself.

During the residency there are ample possibilities to present public artist discussions, readings, lectures, etc. A group exhibition takes place in august in the Town of Tübingen, 25 km away. The project as a whole is well-documented by the regional papers. Works-in-progress can be publicised in social media in cooperation with the artists.
