Join the “Exchange of Painters” project and you will get an opportunity to meet painters from the neighbor country and involve in shared activities such as creative painting sessions and master classes. The first visit to Armenia will happen in September 1-8, 2014 and the visit to Turkey is tentatively planned for the first week of October.

“Exchange of Painters” project participants will visit art colleges and popular art exhibitions in Armenia and Turkey. During those visits discussions will be held on the trends and issues of contemporary art and the environment both in Armenia and Turkey.


Each exchange visit will last eight days.


The paintings produced during the outdoor studio-events will be placed in a 2015 calendar.


A group of five participants (a mentor and four young painters/students) from each country will be selected through an open call, based on submitted applications.


Are you interested? If yes, then apply by submitting the completed application form to [email protected] indicating “Exchange of Painters” in the subject line.


Applications must be submitted by July 25, 2014.


Exchange of Painters project takes place within the framework of the programme Support to the Armenia-Turkey Normalisation Process funded by the European Union
