Located in the heart of the old town Vallauris, A.I.R. Vallauris (Artists in Residence), a non-profit association, welcomes artists from around the world to its lodgings and studios to meet with local artists and to research and create new works in a unique setting. The association became active in October, 2001 and has three primary objectives:
• Hosting international artists and the support of contemporary creation
• Education in (primarily, but not exclusively) the field of ceramic arts
• The organisation and realisation of cultural events.
Artists in Residence
A.I.R. Vallauris accommodates several artists at a given time for a period of one to two months, in its residence and studios. Using different mediums, artists (ceramists, sculptors, painters, photographers, videographers and multimedia artists) work from an equipped studio, live in individual furnished spaces and are afforded access to a gallery where their works are displayed and celebrated at the end of their residency period. Media involvement encourages the interest of an invited and engaged audience. The quality of artistic creation is one of the major concerns addressed by the program. A selection committee evaluates applicants based on their artistic experience, merit and project proposal. Now entering its 21st season, A.I.R. Vallauris has welcomed over 400 international artists since its conception in 2001.
In order to support and achieve these objectives, the activities of the association are focused and grouped into the following programs: Residency, Exhibition, Education, Publication, and Events. Different projects are defined within these programs.
