An Individual Residency provides uninterrupted periods of time with no expectation of a final outcome. Whether you wish simply to be up close to your practice, allow nature to suffuse your thinking and feeling, produce new work or complete a project The Museum of Loss and Renewal does its utmost to ensure that you can achieve what you set out to do.

Applications are open to visual artists, writers, curators, performance artists, designers, musicians, theatre-makers and researchers who work either individually or collaboratively. Individuals and groups are welcomed. The Museum of Loss and Renewal actively encourages interdisciplinary applications from creative collectives/groups who work across disciplines.

The impact on residents’ practices is profound, generously expressed by Emily Fong as “This period has reminded me of my passion and vision for creative systems and interdisciplinary collaboration. In my practice, I am in Collemacchia every day”. Fabien Marques’ relationship with Collemacchia and the region continues as his project develops, commenting “The residency triggered new perspectives in me as an artist and as a European citizen … (it) allowed me to question contemporary issues of identity, integration and homeland, and therefore reconnect my artistic practice to social commitment”.


An individual residency provides uninterrupted periods of time with no expectation of a final outcome.


€320 per week. The Residency Programme is operated on a non-commercial cost-covering basis, and is financially supported by The Museum of Loss and Renewal in order to keep fees low. Typically, artists source funding to support fees, flights, production costs or other subsistence by applying to their national arts funding bodies, by personal fundraising, or through academic institutional support. Letters of invitation can be provided to assist in this process.

Residents are responsible for funding and organising their own travel, insurances and any visa requirements particular to country of origin. Detailed travel information will be supplied (closest airports Naples, Rome), and collection/drop-off at a local train station / intercity bus stop will be arranged for residents (minimal cost).

A deposit of 50% will be required within three weeks of accepting a place on the residency programme. The remaining balance is payable in advance of the residency start date.


- Creative practitioners at any stage of their career
- Creative individuals, duos and partnerships
- Creative practitioners based in any country
- Partners/families of residents can be accommodated, space dependent
