Brashnar Artist-in-Residence (BAiR) is an artist run urban artist residency program located in the neighborhood Hrom on the west side of Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. BAiR is a multi-faceted residency program allowing resident artists the freedom to explore the potentials of their practice while experiencing Macedonian culture through group related activities.
While residing at BAiR, residents live in an open, communal style environment situated in a family oriented neighborhood. During their residency, residents are encouraged to embrace the local culture and to engage with the surrounding community while living here. Residents also take part in maintaining Brashnar’s organic gardens at the Volkovo Project Space and learning how to live a sustainable lifestyle.
The residency program is open to all visual artists and writers that strongly encourage work utilizing innovative and traditional forms of art making along with collaborations, artist-led projects and socially engaged practices. This is a self-directed, process-based residency with no obligation or expectation to complete a body of work, but artists are expected to engage with the community during Open Studio events organized by Brashnar that take place the last week of each month.
