  • Akademie Schloss Solitude combines faith in artistic and academic exchange with the idea of a safe harbour. Akademie residencies allow participants to focus on developing projects in favourable material and intellectual conditions, thanks to which the available resources can be used in an optimal way. Schloss Solitude makes sure that artists can focus on their creative pursuits without having to worry about day-to-day stresses and the pressures of time.. These residences are an investment in the future that can bring delayed effects for both the resident and the institution.

  • The residency programme at the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art is a curatorial programme addressed to artists and curators coming to Poland from all over the world. We support our guests in the implementation of their artistic projects and encourage them to experiment in the fields of their choice. We understand residencies as a medium for artistic activity that allows artist to seek new ways of presentation other than the exhibition model. We conduct research projects mapping the city, collaborate with local communities and support the exchange of knowledge. We promote the idea of mobility within Poland and the broadly understood Eastern Europe.
