Artist in Residence

The Artist in Residence Program is to give the opportunity for artists to come from outside Croatia to live, work and interact with artists and the public in Zagreb for a period of one to three months culminating in an exhibition and presentation.

The dedicated creative space—the atelier—is in the centre of the town, just across the street from the Academy of Fine Arts, University of Zagreb, and surrounded by a host of galleries, museums, and cafés, within a few minutes walking distance. The proximity of related institutions would mean little without the close connections that we have with artists, academy mentors, art historians, curators and other connoisseurs.

Next door to the Atelier is a gallery space that would be used for various exhibitions and as a space for the work of the artist-in-residence at the end of their stay.


Živi Atelje DK has an on-suite exclusive space reserved for Artist-in-residence program within walking distance of our place in Zagreb’s historical center. Artists will be able to rent at privileged prices and conditions for the whole duration of their residency.

If you are interested in applying or have specific questions about the program, please contact us.
