Personal Relations Accommodation Arrangements
To encourange participating artists to attend the international PVs of this project, we are setting up a ‘airbnb’ artists exchange accommodation scheme to keep the costs down. Artists who would like to attend the PVs abroad and would like to make use of this free accommodation scheme or can provide a room, bed or sofa, please inform your contact person of your art collective, who will send us a complete list. Deadline for the London Private View accommodation exchange is 30th of October 2016. We would like to thank all the artists who will open their house. Not only this will keep the costs down but it’s also a nice opportunity to network and exchange.
