Chacala Arts in Residency Program:


2016 saw the first Artist Residency Program which was hosted at Villa Carolyna and Grafica Chacala Studio. The artists had the opportunity to work on a project of their choice and to cross-fertilize with like minded artists from different backgrounds. It was very successful and will be repeated again in November 7-19, 2016 and also in early 2017.
