Who Should Apply
HMC welcomes artists at all stages of their careers and seeks to create a mix of various experience levels in each group of residents. Through a competitive application process, HMC offers residencies to visual artists, writers, composers, and interdisciplinary artists such as those working in sound, performance, choreography, etc.

AIR is an international meeting point for the arts. Its aim is to support and encourage contemporary artistic creation, research and debate. One of HMC’s main activities is its Artist in Residence Program. The purpose of this program is to offer a platform to promote the exchange of artistic discourses from artists with different artistic backgrounds and from different geographical origins. The program is designed to encourage the exchange of ideas in order to broaden creative horizons. By encouraging this cultural diversity, we also hope to be able to update the debate between the artists themselves and between other professionals from the art world and the general public. HMC considers art as a dynamic social force that is capable of inspiring individuality and of defining groups. Our Artist in Residence Program also includes exhibitions, artist talks, film, workshops and other activities. HMC is planning and exchange program with other European Artist in Residence Program, so that the resident artists would be able to get in touch with other artistic centers.

The current problems that have arisen from a lack of understanding of the varying cultures around the world today and it becomes even more apparent that HMC’s projects address a number of very important needs. Visual art — one of the few languages that transcends all boundaries — offers a way to understand not only ourselves and one another, but it offers a venue for greatness, which must be supported if we as a civilization are to move forward. This is HMC’s goal.
