Malý Berlín is looking for a cultural manager, curator or researcher from Central and Eastern Europe to participate in a three-month residency in Trnava, Slovakia.

Malý Berlín is a member of the Trans Europe Halles network, where we launched the Easthub platform – within which we actively try to develop cultural cooperation between post-communist countries. Our international projects also cover topics such as cultural heritage, innovation, modernism, and climate change. We see this residency program as an opportunity to establish new collaborations and to learn more about other countries in our region and their art scenes.

The residency program offers a fully equipped apartment in the historic center of the city with a quiet work space, a monthly stipend, and reimbursement of travel expenses. The selected resident will be free to continue working on his/her own projects, but we expect him/her to do something directly with us or in our cultural center.
