SINCRESIS offers to artists the possibility to live and work because it has a location and a space for studio, workshops and for exhibitions. The program is aimed at artists from all artistic disciplines, and especially young artists at the beginning of their careers and curators.
Artist residency consists in a minimum stay of seven days, with a possible extension subject to availability (from seven days to ninety days).
The period covers a program based on the proposal of a personal project sent beforehand.

In this stay the artists are promoted by the association through workshops, exhibitions, presentations, performances, press conferences.
The artist can realize his project with a workshop, an exhibition, an open studio.
There is the possibility to organize also an exhibition in other cities in Italy in the period in which the artist is residing or after this period. It is possible also to work with another artist in residence or with other artists who live in our territory.
In fact SINCRESIS has relationship with many artists and with other spaces in Florence, Rome and Milan as
