Popoli | Calcata

Open Call sessions for Fall 2022, open to artists with focus on Visual Arts, Sculpture, Literature, and Poetry. Curated with the intention of carefully suiting individuals to the unique environment and resources we can offer at Karin Giusto Studio in Popoli, and the Bohemian artists community in Calcata.

The medieval settings of Popoli, and Calcata provide an opportunity for artists and writers to live and work outside of their usual environments, providing them with time to reflect, research, or produce work.

We offer one-on-one mentoring sessions to younger and emerging artists across disciplines by distinguished fellow artists, writers, and academics. Our mentoring sessions run in tandem with our spring, summer, and fall residencies sessions. During this period, artists and writers in residence enrol for a minimum of one week up to several weeks with the option of one-on-one mentoring sessions that can be tailored to meet individual creative goals during and after artists-in-residence sessions.
