Artists’ Residencies Centre

The office manages the program of stipends and residencies for writers, poets, essayists, critics, translators, journalists, screenwriters and culture managers. Currently Artists' Residencies Centre implements four residential programmes:

Krakow UNESCO Residency Program for writers and translators from the UNESCO Creative Cities Network;

The Residency Program of the International Cities of Refuge Network (ICORN) for prosecuted writers and artists;

Artistic Scholarship of Villa Decius Institute for Culture addressed to visual artists who work on artistic projects thematically related to Polish cultural heritage;

Scholars at Risk (SAR) Network Residence offering a safe stay for the academic semester and logistic support for scientist exposed to persecution.

Villa Decius also hosts artists taking part in The Visegrad Literary Residency Program and Scriptwriting Scholarships managed by the Villa Decius Association.

Every residency program includes a monthly scholarship and housing at comfortable rooms located in Łaski's House - a rennaissance palace's outbuilding.

At Artists' Residencies Centre we do our best to provide the residing artists with vast opportunities for professional development and for promoting their work in Poland. We also helps them engage in local literary life, as well as explore Krakow's history and cultural heritage.

The stipends and residencies are accompanied by a publishing series that presents the work of the hosted artists.
