World of CO, a multidisciplinary self-directed Residency
World of Co is an initiative inspired by the vivid art scene. After a couple of years living aboard and taking part of different art associations and residencies, the World of Co crew decided to share and bring their experience to Bulgaria – by creating a multidisciplinary Residency Program in the capital, Sofia. The aim of the Residency is multileveled - from one side, bringing together international artists and creative people to Bulgaria to exhibit, collaborate, learn and share. From another side, to unveil a different perspective of one not-so-well-known country and its’ art potential.
The duration of the Residency is between 1 to 6 months, one-month minimum stay.
