For 2019 period, we are inviting the following artists to participate:

Anamaria Pravicencu
Anca Benera and Arnold Estefan
Burkhard Beins

Thanks to all who submitted their work. We are only sorry we could not invite even more artists.


Current and Upcoming Residents

All Residents

The Agosto Foundation seeks to establish strong platforms for the continuous and ongoing sharing of ideas. Through the Agosto Residency Program, the foundation seeks to create a context, not restricted to artists, for those active in the cultural realm to step outside of their usual frames of reference and to reach across disciplines. The aim is to facilitate, support and maintain a general platform for engaged, creative, adisciplinary (not oriented toward any one discipline) and exploratory projects. The residency program gives preference to the fields that involve social awareness initiatives, sound and media art, inclusivity, improvisation, social justice, and environmental consciousness.

Participation in the Agosto residency program is contingent upon an invitation from the Agosto Foundation. The program prefers stays of at least one month, typically in the range of one to two months in duration. We are working with a rotating board of curators (or specialists and other advisors) to assemble a list of nominees for this program.

The residency program was supported by Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic in 2018.
