Aviário Studio Ceramics Residency - Winter/Spring 2025

Associated Residency Program

An art residency provides the technical conditions, time, and space to develop ideas and try new approaches. It is a moment that promotes connection between artists from different backgrounds and consequently the exchange of knowledge and experiences.

Aviário Studio Ceramics Residency aims to promote the exploration and production in the Ceramics field. The program is customized according to the participating artist’s goals regarding duration, outcome and focus.  We offer the conditions to test possibilities and materialize ideas. On one hand, it can be a moment of transition, more connected to experimentation, research and learning new techniques; on the other hand, it can be the point of consolidation of a project translated into the production of a new body of work.
