Onassis AiR — an international artistic research and residency program — invites artists, curators, designers, dancers, chefs, gardeners, activists, writers, educators, legal advocates, performers, economists, architects, filmmakers, and other practitioners from any medium of expression or discipline, from anywhere in the world, to apply for a Tailor-made Residency running between September 2023 and July 2024 in Athens, Greece.

The program consists of individual residencies, each lasting for a maximum of three months. The Tailor-made Residency stems from the participants’ needs, being for anyone in need of support and who yearns for space, focused time, and stimulating conversations that can help kick off, further develop, or finalize a project. Onassis AiR offers professional development activities including mentoring sessions, presentations, peer-to-peer feedback sessions, organized site visits to local art spaces and other institutions, and opportunities to meet and connect with local artists and arts professionals.

All participants are invited to use the Onassis AiR space and resources to develop their research or project without the expectation of presenting a final work. Rather, the participants are encouraged to engage with the Onassis AiR Community through an offering in the form of a workshop, an in-progress presentation, a lecture or screening, or any other format they wish to propose. It is for those interested and open to moments of exchange and collective study.

The working language of the program is English.

All accepted participants will receive a research fee, housing, travel to/from Athens, a research budget, and other resources.

Applications must be submitted by March 20, 2023, no later than 12pm Coordinated Universal Time (UTC+2).
