DESCRIPTION


REON is a newly founded contemporary space for clay and arts, in Northern Corfu. We provide an inclusive working environment for artists. We are especially keen to welcome professionals (artists, designers, architects and researchers) working between the intersections of clay, ecology, tradition and technology, as well as artists with less opportunities.  The residency is best suited for independent, self-organized individuals. The residents should be comfortable with working and living in a rural setting.


APPLY


You can now apply for our first residency (round year applications). Residency period: 2022, exact dates to be arranged together.
We are happy to receive any inquiries and application proposals through e-mail. Please only apply if the prospect of having a residency at our studio seems truly exciting to you. If you don’t directly work with clay, but you are still very intrigued by the prospect of a residency with us or have a specific idea, do write us!


ACCOMODATION


At the moment we can offer basic accommodation in the common space (including a kitchennette and bathroom), but we are gradually working towards renovating a part of the building that is the  guest room. You can also find a few apartments/villas in the proximate area. 

Renting a car/motorbike is strongly advised.







EXPECTATIONS


The residents are expected to develop an individual project, new or existing, spending time on location.

It is important that you would like to share part of your work & experience with the local community. This could be for example a sculpting workshop for children, a collective dinner with the locals, a workshop on a special technique, a presentation at the end of your residency, an open studio etc. Of course we would be more than happy to discuss and implement your own paricular ideas.

Depending on the residency, a work should be left for REON and it’s archive. As a work, we can also consider a prototype, written matter, research etc. If you wish, you will be also able to create works or products that will be for sale at the online store of REON.

The equipment and materials provided, should be used with care and the residents are expected to engage with the local community and natural environment respectfully.
