A – DASH is an artist-run studios & project space in Athens, Greece. Founded in 2016 by an international group of friends, the initiative began with the renovation of a listed neoclassical Athenian house near Lykavittos hill. A – DASH aims to encourage innovative and investigative approaches, crossing borders between different creative disciplines, cultural identities, geographical locations, political economies, crafts and new technologies. By placing emphasis on the open dialogue between the studios and project spaces, A – DASH looks to foster a flexible environment encouraging experimentation, collaboration and interdisciplinary exchange between members and collaborators.
A living & working studio space in A – DASH house
An introduction to the city of Athens & its hidden corners
A network & dialog with the creative community of Athens (Art, Architecture, Craftsmen, DIY technologies, FABLAB, etc)
A support for an artistic research: Sourcing materials, locating resources, obtaining access to local workshops, craftsmen, libraries, museums and archives. The production of public program: seminars, talks, events, or open studio day tailored case by case in regard to each artist research project
THE IN DA HOUSE – ARTISTIC RESEARCH RESIDENCY is meant as a momentum to research and experiment outside of the pressure of a necessary finalized product or exhibition. Carefully supported and nurtured by the A – DASH Team, it offers a time to think, reflect and create while engaging with the local creative community. Public events such as talks, studio visits, dinners, screening, performance, etc. will be tailored to each resident depending on their interests. We aim to provide a platform of connections for each artist as to allow a network to emerge that carves out channels lasting beyond the time of the residency.
