It allows four artists (one from each Visegrad country) to experience life and work in a unique community where creativity is applied to the everyday and offers conditions that enrich the creativity. More than 40 artists have come to Brooklyn through the Visegrad residency program since it started in 2011. Some have spent its two months duration reflecting and finding their new wave of inspiration, some inspired others with whom creation of artistic installations was possible to achieve.
