The PICA Residency Program offers opportunities for artists, companies, curators and producers to push the boundaries of their genre, in the development of work which is conceptually, formally or technologically ambitious and which contributes to current cultural or art form developments.

PICA accepts proposals for residencies once a year. See our Proposal Guidelines here.
