Young artists can work in separate workshops and outdoors. We try to help with the necessary materials and tools. At the end of the residence period, participants present projects in their own workshops, on an open day. It is possible to organize an independent exhibition or performance. The result of staying in the residence can be a completed project or just a stage of it. In any case, we ask the authors to acquaint us and the visitors of the residence with their work. We will also be happy to add one of your pieces to the Stone Oven House collection.
We consider all applications, but we give preference to projects that include at least one of the following aspects:
- correlation with the theme of the year
- interactive dialogue with local residents
- work with the historical and cultural context of the territory
- addressing the topic of rethinking village life in the modern world
- the problem of conscious consumption of resources, recycling
- using the latest technology in art
In addition to the workshops, we will arrange your accommodation. You can stay in our commune for free in a common room or tent. If you value privacy and comfort, we will discuss the possibilities of renting rooms and apartments. All residents are provided with clean bed linen and individual towels. The lack of hired staff and the sharing economy allows you to save a significant part of your living expenses. Tidying and other tasks are shared between residents and volunteers.
We pay special attention to healthy eating. Joint lunches and dinners are one of the important components of the life of our commune. In addition to vegetables and fruits from our garden, we try to purchase organic products from local farmers, keeping costs to a minimum without compromising the quality of life. Taking into account the limited financial resources of young people, we share the cost of food and other needs among residents in such a way that for young authors they are 14 euros per day. Between October and the end of April, we collect an additional € 5 per day for heating.
In exceptional cases, we are ready to cover daily expenses with the community budget. But today the residence exists without external financial support and the number of such cases is limited and determined by the current financial situation.
