Nocefresca is a residency programme that brings together artists, designers, writers and creative nomads from around the world.
Our objective is for artists to focus on their projects while experiencing the inspiring environment of Sardinia island, Italy.
We hope to give artists a place where they can draw from the islands rich historical, natural and cultural references.
Away from the constraints of everyday life and far enough from the pressures of big cities, each participant can have access to a fully equipped workplace, accommodations and professional support.
During their stay, they are encouraged to explore new projects, self-direct their research, and cultivate new creative paths — all while surrounded by a small community of creative minds with all ages and geographical origins, within the cozy rural villages of the island.
Starting with an exploration of the artist’s interests and objectives, nocefresca designs a tailored residency plan that reflects the unique locations and creative opportunities available in Sardinia.
In this way, artists will have access to the experiences and activities that best support their artistic growth. Inspirational workshops, explorations of the regional cultural scene, individual and group conversations, visiting guests, public events and much more become valuable opportunities for the advancement of the artist research in the field of visual arts and design, as well as writing and digital storytelling. With nocefresca, artists can find professional support for the development of their projects regardless of its outcome and even in the delicate initial phase, when every result is still uncertain.
