Description WOC Online Residency is a way to reconnect with the international art community, provoke creative exchange, and expand your art practice through feedback and mutual support.

The focus is on connecting artists and building new networks between them, through dialogue and experimentation. The participants are able to work on specific projects, improve their portfolios, and move on when they feel stuck and need help.

Through active dialogue, exchanging ideas, and critical thinking, the program builds a strong sense of community and artistic collaboration among its participants which lasts after the program ends.

In a friendly and supportive atmosphere, WOC helps artists to continue growing, experimenting and improving themselves as artists.
