The Siena Art Institute Onlus is a small non-profit arts organization based in the heart of Siena, Italy, one of the oldest and most beautiful university towns in Italy.

The institute welcome artists from all disciplines who are interested in the intersection of art and civic life, and who wish to explore how the theoretical content of our individual practices can be translated into socially-meaningful projects that produce a deeper understanding of the cultures in which we find ourselves.

The institute offers both a unique study program for undergraduate or postgraduate art & writing students. They also offer Intensive Summer & Winter Courses, City Arts Programs, Summer Residency Program, Project Fellowships, and a Visiting Artist Program.

Its program has emerged from the partner program, the Siena School for Liberal Arts, which has led arts & humanities courses in Siena since 2004. The institute continues to work in close partnership with the Siena School, offering their program participants unparalleled opportunities to become active participants in Siena's dynamic and fascinating culture.
