World of Co Artist Residency is a project, inspired by the vivid contemporary art scene and the cultural treasures around us. After years of living abroad and taking part in different art organizations and residencies, in 2017 the WOC crew decided to bring their experience and knowledge to Bulgaria – by creating an international artist residency in Sofia.
The mission of World of Co Artist Residency is to create a platform for exploration and experiments for international and Bulgarian artists, to bring awareness about Bulgaria, its’ art and culture, and to contribute to the local contemporary art scene and community.
World of Co Artist Residency offers a friendly, supportive and stimulating atmosphere to international and Bulgarian artists, curators, researchers and art managers. The residency enables to develop ongoing research, to work on art projects and discover the city and the artistic scene of Bulgaria. By creating opportunities for meetings, the program initiates an environment for exchanges and discussions to foster common experiments between people and venues from various disciplinary fields. During the residency, the artists usually focus on research, experiments, production, learning new skills, critical discourse, networking, collaboration.
