Arc Artist Residency (Switzerland) > Walk and Talk residency

A special characteristic of Arc is the wonderful landscape that surrounds it.

Walk & Talk residencies are aimed at artists and other cultural practitioners who wish to discuss a certain question with an expert from another field. The idea is to give people time to enter into a longer dialogue in another rhythm and collaborative mode. Deadline for application: no later than 2 months before the starting date of your residency.
