Vacuum Artist Safe Haven

Vacuum#1 is a small, cosy and nice working space situated in the south of crete, in between the mountains and overlooking the
Libyan sea. 

Vacuum is a space that allows artists to log out , switch off and recharge their batteries in order to regain the balance, allowing them to envision and manifest their artistic vision.

Vacuum has evolved from our own need as artists, to find a place where we can be safe from the world, in order to create a headspace that allows and enhances creativity.

It is a well known fact that the majority of artists are currently under pressure to stand their ground in a continually economy and money driven society. We aim to try and restore the balance by doing something for the good of the artists and their work. Staying at Vacuum is possible for any kind of artist, providing you have published work in in the cultural space.

If you wish to apply for Vacuum you can do so by emailing us directly at vacuum@digitalpissfactory.net, including relevant work info and desired duration. Please do not send large attachments in any form.

We prefer a downloadable link. In total we honor up to six residencies a year with a minimum of one week and a maximum of 1 month. The cost for the residency is 100€ per week for the use of electricity, internet, water and maintenance.

If you are an artist in need and you can not afford this, please still go ahead and send us your application.
