We believe that performers all over the world belong to "one huge small world" speaking the universal “intercultural” language, and need to meet each other to refresh energies, find new collaborations, share creative ideas and have great fun!

UNIQUE LOCATION & VENUE
Arts Oasis residency offers the unique opportunity of full creative immersion. Participants will stay and create together literally in the secluded "oasis" at the territory of the XII century Monastery, surrounded by the Apuan Alps and the sky-blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The name of the Monastery is mentioned by many prominent authors of Italian classical literature and is famous for being the place of seclusion for such outstanding figure as Dante Alighieri.
Everything is organized at the same territory: creative space, accommodation and full board, so participants can concentrate on creation and communication without distracting to routine necessaries. Click here to see the photos of this fabulous place and find out more about the Monastery!
