Nest Art Residency

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

The Nest Art Residency welcomes artists, writers, curators, cultural managers, and art reseachers, providing them with the opportunity to live and work in Yerevan while developing individual projects and immersing themselves in Armenia’s creative sphere.

Since its opening in 2013, Nest has hosted over thirty residents (from Austria, UK, Italy, Russia, France, USA, Turkey, Finland, Germany, Bulgaria, Netherlands, Ukraine, Canada, and Spain) who contributed to create a vital connection between the Armenian cultural scene and the international artistic community.

Located in an elegant villa within ICA Yerevan, Nest Art Residency provides each resident with full accommodation and working space. ICA Yerevan also houses a library, two auditoriums, a full-equipped kitchen and a garden, all of which are at the disposal of the residents.The residency space includes two private bedrooms, two art studios, a shared kitchen, a shared bathroom, and a garden.

Moreover, the ICA-run Curatorial School, Research and Project Labs provide a comprehensive set of resources, facilities and tools for residents to better connect with the Armenian contemporary art scene.

What we suggest

Individual residencies can last from a few days to up to one month. We offer an orientation meeting, introduction to the local art scene and networking with the experts in specific cultural and/or research fields of the resident, a final presentation of resident’s research/project results (the format is open and upon the resident’s choice – from small presentation to exhibition).

What we expect

The resident is expected to share the outcome of her/his artistic research. The format (presentation, exhibition, performance, screening, workshop, manifesto, etc) is up to the resident. Additional events or workshops must be organized with the approval of ICA.


Applicants are responsible for covering the residency fee which includes rent, utilities and administrative support. The Nest team will issue acceptance letters for successful residents and support their applications for external grants to cover the residency fee.
