ONASSIS AiR, the 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 Tailor-made Residency is a program of individual residencies, each lasting for a maximum of three months. Each residency stems from the participants’ needs. This program is for anyone in need of support who is yearning for space, focused time, and stimulating conversations that can help to kick-off, further develop, or finalize a project. The program offers professional development activities including mentoring sessions, presentations and 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 Οnassis 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 Οnassis 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.
