We have a wood workshop with basic hand tools. There are also shared computers for writing, video and visual work.

We provide assistance to the artist in terms of connecting to other institutions and artists on the island. It is also possible to organise shows or performances. The hosts of the residency assist with all practical questions.

The residency has a small studio for performance, dance and music work with basic equipment such as a sound system, mixer, amp, instruments, projector and recording/documentation possibilities. We have another visual art studio for painting and writing.

The residency and the association administering it are not-for-profit and all income goes to maintaining the house.

Fees and support
The residency is artist-run and we have no external funding at the moment. Thus everyone involved with the residency works voluntarily and we cannot provide the visiting artists and researchers with grants. The residency does not charge any additional artist fees.

Expectations towards the artist
The artists or researchers at the residency are not expected to provide any predetermined results. We happily facilitate research or art work in terms of presentations or exhibitions. We collaborate with an art centre in Limassol that organises discussions, exhibitions and events with renown international guests (neme.org). The residency guests are encouraged to engage with the local and international researchers and artists at these events.

Other conditions
The residency strives to have an ecologically sustainable material basis. Thus the facilities are simple with mostly natural materials, use of toxic chemicals is not possible etc.

There is a small vegetable garden at the residency where the guests can voluntarily participate in and eat from. For buying food there is a vegetable and fruit shop called Fruteria in the village that the residency collaborates with. There are also organic farmers in the village who, seasonally, have vegetables, fruits and eggs to sell.

The residency is open for families and partners of the guests. Let us know if your pets come along so we can agree and arrange it with the other guests. The residency hosts live in the village and are ready to help with any questions.
