The non-profit organization ‘c.r.e.t.a. rome’ offers an international self-funded residency program in the historical centre of Rome, Italy. The Italian word for clay seemed perfect to express our commitment to creating an international reference point for ceramics and the arts in the eternal city of Rome. Moreover, taken as an acronym, it spells out our main activities: ceramics, residencies, exhibitions, teaching and the arts. Artists have the opportunity to focus on their art, whether it be creating a new body of work, expanding a well-established oeuvre or allowing themselves to draw inspiration from their surroundings and the centuries of culture that define the eternal city. In addition, they will have access to the wealth of galleries and exhibitions in Rome and beyond.
In the historical center, we provide shared housing and a studio space as well as technical support. We also have a residency program in the countryside with a private studio and private housing. This option is ideal for collaborative projects and also families. Both studio are fitted out with ceramic facilities. At the end of the residency, there is a final group show to present the works created during the residency period.
