Artists do not pay any rent for the residence apartment with work space. However, a monthly maintainance fee is required from all artists for the complete period of residence. The fee covers maintainence and hosting costs. The fee should be payed at least two (2) months prior to the first day of the offered and confirmed residence period. If the maintainance fee is not transfered to the cooperative´s bank account in time, the residence period will be cancelled. Artists must finance their own travel to/from the village, her/his own food and other daily requirements, including working materials. It is our wish that the visitor donates an art piece or product to the AiR collection at the end of his/her residency. The selected stipend artist for January-March does not have to pay any maintanance fee.
