The HMC invites interested visual artists, writers and musicians to submit application for its residency program in Hungary. Its principal focus is an international residency program to which artists from around the world are invited. The goal is to provide a supportive community with uninterrupted time to work. The residencies offer participants a unique opportunity to interact with other artists representing a variety of cultures and backgrounds. Accepted applicants are expected to speak and understand English. Approximately 6 artists are invited for each session. The residence offers 2 bed per room/bath as living quarters. Studio, room, breakfast, lunch, exhibitions, seminar are included in the cost $950 (EURO600).

Exhibition will be arranged at Ferencvarosi Gallery and two other galleries to be named.

Artists will give at least one informal public slide/powerpoint/DVD/CD presentation (45 minutes) about their work during their stay at the HMC and leave one exhibition ready art work made during the residency as a donation to the HMC.

While HMC does not provide funding for residencies, we are helping to facilitate the creation of program and the cost of the exhibitions. We encourage the applicants to apply for a grant or scholarship.
