The residency provides hospitality as follows:

  • transportation from Athens to the residency and back.
  • housing and food supplies during the course of the residency
  • transportation to all the sites visited as part of the residency
  • an additional stipend of 200 Euros

Accommodation is organized as follows:

  • rooms & bathrooms at the residency are shared
  • cooking and cleaning the house during our stay is undertaken collectively according to a rota (organizing what tasks people are expected to do on what day)

Access to technology:

  • residents should bring their own equipment (instruments & computers etc.)
  • the residency takes place in a remote region of Greece, with limited ability to obtain tech/electronic materials while we are there – it is far easier to get in the area a bail of wire, or a piece of pipe then a semi-conductor or an obscure battery!
  • for this reason residents should check in advance concerning what materials will be available, and what they will need to bring.
  • No Internet access at the House.

Living expenses:

  • while there are few expenses the residents need to consider while at the residency, it is worth having some funds for trips to local cafes and the like.
  • calculate approximately 5-10 euros a day for such incidentals. Your stipend will more than cover this.

Transportation to and from Athens:

  • the residency does not provide transportation to and from Athens
  • residenents are responsible for arranging this themselves
