Long term project


A residency, or an artist's stay in a specific place, is a common way of supporting artists and their work. For several years, we had been considering whether to actually start residencies, and it wasn't until PLATO moved to its new headquarters with two residency rooms that we were able to create the facilities necessary, and we expanded the concept of residency in a way to make sense to us and the residents.

Thus, from November 2022, PLATO offers facilities for individuals and collectives active in the field of art and culture (and beyond) to participate in our programme and inspire us to change or self-reflection. It is not the exhibitions or the artwork that are of utmost importance, but mutual, or even just symbolic support, changing our institutional behaviour and drawing attention to topics that were not in our focus.
