On the Call published in 2022 we received over 170 applications globally. The shortlisted applications were of a high quality, and after an additional round of personal interviews we selected the the artists Tami Izko and Federico Clavarino as Art Futures Fellows 2023.

In addition to the selected Art Futures Fellow an Art Futures Research Fellow was appointed, Georgios Papadopoulos. Through his research and as a ‘resident’ facilitator he will ensure the residency is well embedded in the local context, provide ongoing research into the discourse around artist residencies involving inclusive, socially engaged practice, and contribute to the sustainability of the project.

Art Futures Fellowship 2024

Artists from all arts disciplines are invited to apply for a fellowship, which includes a two-month residency in Athens and a two-month residency in Zutphen in 2024, both in a fully equipped studio-apartments. Successful applicants will additionally receive a total fee of 8000 euro which is intended to cover travel costs/expenses, a visa (where necessary) and subsistence over the residency period. 


Athens: [sic] Space for International Cooperation, is an independent, non-for profit, project-space in the heart of Athens. It is privately run by a group of international friends that each bring in their professional background and networks to host, support and facilitate co-operations among local and international partners. Artistic residencies, exhibitions, symposia, workshops or longer-term projects explore new ideas and new forms of knowledge and policies across the usual divide of cultures, disciplines and sectors.

Zutphen: Dat Bolwerck is a multi-disciplinary art space, focussing on contemporary art, contemporary music and philosophy, offering a carefully curated programme of high-quality exhibitions by (inter)national contemporary artists, concerts, lectures and workshops. Dat Bolwerck is located in a sixteenth century monument in the historical centre of Zutphen, a city 115 km East of Amsterdam.
