Call for artists + creative professionals

We have a unique opportunity for artists and creative professionals from the displaced community to receive support for reconnecting with their profession.

The opportunity is open to anyone that has worked as: an artist, painter, graphic designer, illustrator, architect, engineer, 3D/ product designer, writer, or theatre stage designer, or has worked in a museum or art gallery, managed creative projects, or made research in art or culture.

What we are offering:
We are able to support with: access to a professional studio in which to work; a small budget for materials, printing or other related costs; administrative assistance; support with project planning and materials procurement; support for CV and portfolio development; access to coaching and mentoring opportunities; access to an international network of creative professionals and the wider artists in exile network.

The program will be tailored to each individual according to their professional focus and needs. We have limited spaces available and interested candidates are required to register and attend an in-person meeting. If any assistance is required for the application process please contact Office of Displaced Designers.

To register, please complete the form below.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis throughout the year.

*Please note that this program is only available to members of the displaced community. If you are a Greek resident working in the arts or creative industries, please see our upcoming program : Ελληνικό Πρόγραμμα Υποστήριξης Καλλιτεχνών
