A shelter for artistic practices
Together Apart is a new international program that proposes a collaborative work and research format, conceived in times of pandemic as a refuge for artistic practices. During August-September 2020 we developed its first edition with a group of participants from North and South America, Europe, the Middle East and Australia. After this first edition in English, we are happy to launch the first edition of this refuge for artistic practices, now in SPANISH.
Because Together Apart… we are stronger.
This 4-week NEST will incubate you and accompany you in your artistic processes, proportioning the knowledge necessary to investigate, activate creativity and produce in these unusual circumstances. You will be able to work in collaboration with peers from different parts of the world and receive reviews and feedback from the program directors, as well as from the rest of the participants, and improve your artistic skills while establishing personal and professional ties.
We will use the concept of NEST as a trigger, literally and metaphorically as the origin of life, a womb, the place that houses the primeval egg but also as a more or less complex structure that incubates and protects. Nests are a network. The houses are a nest. In all cases, it provides a shelter and nurtures growth. Our NEST is especially designed for artists, curators and researchers from around the world who may be having difficulties with their practice due to the situation we all find ourselves in globally. But even if you don’t, you can still take advantage of what this NEST offers.
What do we need?

During the last 15 years, we have received more than 500 artists in residency and we have worked with relevant institutions producing residencies, international exhibitions, urban interventions, educational projects with and for the community, workshops and graphic editions of multiple.

About Together Apart
Anna Rose is an American visual artist whose works are extraordinary, unusual, and provocative. Graduated in Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute, in the USA, she currently lives and works in Florence, Italy. Her artistic practice encompasses video, costumes, installation, and photography. As a participant in our first remote residency, within the “Together at a Distance” program, this was her post-residency testimony:
“Together Apart provided a much-needed jump start to my practice after a few difficult months.
The structure of weekly group meetings, which was enriched by artist talks and lectures by the guest curator, brought focus to my work by giving me a gentle push to regularly produce something around a given theme. After seeing many of my plans and projects put on hold in the past 6 months, it was a relief to be given something to do! The weekly exercises helped me to start rebuilding my art routine in this much-changed landscape.
I greatly appreciated the welcoming tone of the encounters and the emphasis on a multi-disciplinary approach that cut through the hierarchies of the art world.
A wonderful experience that I would gladly repeat! Thank you all!”
What do you hope to get out of this residence? (A question asked at the beginning of the program )
“I am hoping to get from this residency some structure which echoes what many of you have been saying, because I find it quite challenging to be productive these past few months.
I think it’s also really interesting to think about this as a platform for creating momentum within our practice. I’m curious how we can better use an online platform for making work and making connections.
So, I am happy to be here with all of you!”
