OPEN CALL 2021: WOC@Home - Online Artist Residency by World of Co



WOC@Home is an Online Artist Residency hosted by World of Co, an improved version of the program that we have been running during the last six months of 2020.

This virtual program is a way to re-connect within the art community, to provoke the creative  exchange between international artists and to form another dimension of social interaction. The focus is on connecting artists and building new networks between them, through dialogue and experimentation. 

The program gives the opportunity to dedicate creative time, to receive support and feedback from the WOC team, teachers and artists and find motivation to continue current projects or start a new one. You will also expand your audience through presence in World of Co social media channels, website and blog.   The participants are also encouraged to participate in the online exhibition at the end of the program.


More about the program:

  • Weekly group meetings throughout the residency hosted by the WOC team
  • Group critiques helping you to conceptualize your art projects hosted by professional artist

Since 2017, World of Co has organized the artist residency programs in Sofia, Bulgaria, introducing the local art and culture to more than 150 international artists. However from May 2020, we introduced to our audience the virtual artist residency program in response to the circumstances that the organization was facing.  We consider the online artist residencies is a relevant format for supporting and connecting artists in times of social isolation and limited travel opportunities. The program is well structured but at the same time is designed to be open, shaped by the ideas and the creative interaction.



WOC@Home (two months program) will have four sessions starting from January, February, March and April 2021.

WOC@Home (one month program) will take place in January, March, April and May 2021
