Four budding artists, out of a pool of 273 applicants, were selected to participate in the 2018 edition of the Artists Development Programme (ADP).

FRAUD/Francisco Gallardo (35, Spain/UK) won the thematic call on ‘Disruption: The Imprint of Man’; Grzegorz Stefanski (34, Poland) won the thematic focus residency on “Cultural Heritage: Dealing with History through Art”; Bill Balaskas (35, Greece) and Antonis Theodoridis (33,Greece) are the beneficiaries of the geographic focus residency targeting artists from Cyprus, Estonia, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania and Malta.

The winners will participate in a five week-long residency in Luxembourg in May/June 2018 and will visit the mentor of the Programme, Darren Almond, in his studio in London in late March. At the end of the residency, the artists will take part in a series of events (exhibition, introduction to museums directors and collectors, and to a broader public) to present the artworks they will have produced in Luxembourg.
