Supporting the mobility of art

Košice artists can participate in foreign residential stays in some partner countries. It is an important moment in supporting the mobility of artists and ideas, and at the same time, for the co-creation of European cultural space via cultural exchanges and cooperation.

K.A.I.R. organises exchanges between artists with partners in several countries such as Ukraine, Moldova, France and Germany. Artists also hold lectures, projections, seminars and they open ateliers for the public. A final exhibition/ presentation usually presents the resident’s work.
