The residency program welcomes multi-disciplinary artist of all ages and backgrounds to explore the richness of Mexico City in the context of your creative process. PR is for emerging and experienced artists, designers, architects, curators, and researchers to pursue their creative endeavors without pressure to produce. We do not discriminate based on age, level of experience, sexual orientation, the genre of artistic expression, degrees held, or the myriad of other limitations placed by some residencies.
We provide opportunities to live and work in the center of one of the most dynamic mega-culture cities in the world, Mexico City DF. Artists create new works, develop their practice, and find potential collaborators while drawing inspiration from community, learning, and our dynamic cultural hub of CDMX.
The atmosphere of Proyecto is an oasis in the midst of this chaotic and exciting city. There are between 1 and 4 people staying at PR at all times. Each artist has their own live-workspace and the option of using a larger space based on pre-arrangements.
