Petrohradská kolektiv is a cultural venue located in the building of an old chocolate factory in Prague, Czech Rep. Our aim is to support emerging artists working in disciplines of fine art, visual, audio and performance art, photography, illustration, design, and literature. The residency is an opportunity for independent, self-­led professional development, artistic exchange, networking and experimentation. The artist-in-residence will be provided with, free of charge, accommodation in a single room in a flat shared with other artists-in-residents, a studio space, basic production, technical and curatorial support. Travel costs and per-diems are not provided for by the Petrohradská kolektiv Residency Project. Residents are obliged to complete and present an artist talk (public presentation) and final project presentation during their stay. We will be accepting up to six artists-in-residents in 2019, which will be selected by a committee of Petrohradská kolektiv members and external artists and curators.
