RSS - Aria Residency Iran

Aria Residency is a not-for-profit space which provides artists, curators, writers, and researchers the opportunity to live and create work in Tehran. 


By providing the accommodation and studio for Iranian and international residents, Aria aims to extend the mobility inside the country and outside and engage the local artists with the non-Iranian ones for a specific period of time. This will create the more cultural exchange and dialogue for both sides and will develop the Iranian contemporary art and culture.


Aria offers a community in which the residents can participate and connect to the art scene, so they can get the most out of their stay.

Duration of residency: between 2 weeks and 3 months (For many nationalities, visa can be issued on arrival for period of 1 month)
