Onassis AiR invites artists, curators, designers, theater makers, activists, writers, choreographers, performers, architects, creative coders, filmmakers, and other practitioners working in any discipline, from anywhere in the world, to apply for a residency or fellowship in Athens, Greece, between September 2024 and July 2025.

Onassis AiR is dedicated to fostering the artistic process by providing space and time to arts professionals from diverse backgrounds, helping them delve deeper into their practice without the pressure of presenting a final work. It is a meeting point for cross-disciplinary thinking and exchange, bringing forward themes that concern us today, always in dialogue with the city we live in and the world around us.

For its next season, Onassis AiR has expanded its reach and offers opportunities on three different strands:

The Onassis AiR Extended Research Residencies
These three-month artistic residencies are meant for creative practitioners from all disciplines who are yearning for space, focused time, and stimulating conversations that can help kick off, further develop, or finalize a project.

The Onassis AiR Dramaturgy Fellowships
A three-month fellowship for research and the development of new performance-based works comprising an original creation that has never been presented before. We welcome applications from creators who operate in the expanded field of dramaturgy in theater, dance, music, visual arts, and their hybrid intersections.

The Onassis AiR/ONX Fellowships
A two-month fellowship for projects that emerge at the intersections of culture, technology, and human experience, explore alternative possibilities, and challenge established boundaries and dominant narratives — using AI, XR/VR/AR, analog immersive experiences, games, spatial computing, hardware sculptures, or robots.

Onassis AiR awards a total of 30 residencies and fellowships. All participants will receive a monthly artist’s fee of €1,300, a research budget, housing, travel to and from Athens, and more. Participants are encouraged to engage with the Onassis AiR Community through an offering in the form of a workshop, presentation, screening, or any format they wish to propose.

Applications must be submitted by March 4 at 12pm (UTC+2).
