We have been holding artist residences on Silba since 2012, and those will now also be held off-season. Artist residences will be dedicated to a cooperation between artists and the local population aimed at creating new artistic, cultural, social and natural states and content. We will create new elements, particles of body and spirit through the synergy of artists and nature. The concept of the residences is conceived as a type of laboratory for researching different artistic disciplines: from new media, through performance arts, conceptual music and film. The researches reference local history, flora and fauna, the specific Mediterranean island identity and have the primary goal of finding the connection between the Mediterranean identity and contemporary art for the participating artists.
