Siena Art Institute

Scholarship program

The grant supports the participation of two young Greek artists in a residency program called “ORIENTamenti”. The project aims to offer a new experience for young European and Arab artists during a residency program of 4 months in Tuscany. Young artists confront each other on themes of identity, belonging and human rights, and in particular possible means of artistic expression in situations of crisis or sociopolitical/economic difficulty. 

The Siena Art Institute, founded in 2011, is a non-profit arts organization based in Siena (Italy). It welcomes artists from all disciplines to participate in socially meaningful projects that produce a deeper understanding of culture.
