Every year Akrai Residency issues an international call to artists, chefs, dancers, filmmakers, musicians, poets and writers. Akrai offers residencies to international creative professionals who have been active in their respective fields for at least 3 years. The sole criterion for selection is artistic excellence.
The application process is conducted completely online. A jury of professionals is invited to review the applications submitted and makes recommendations to the organization. Invited professionals participate completely for free but are responsible for their breakfast and lunch (which can be cooked in the apartments), and the cost of their own materials, as well as any other incidental expenses.
Next residency session will take place in 2018. Dates of the residency are: August 6 -26, 2018. We will accept applications on this webpage from December 21, 2017 through January 21, 2018. Applicants will be notified in February 2018 for the August 2018 residency session. Please sign up for our Mailing List to be notified about the 2018 Call for Proposals.
The 2018 edition of Akrai Residency will be thematic. The theme is: Slow Time. We will accept applications from any of the creative fields listed above that investigate this theme.
