TransArtists shares information, knowledge and experience about artist-in-residence programmes and other international opportunities for artists and art professionals who are looking stay and work elsewhere temporarily. Their goal is to make the enormous offer of residencies in the world more comprehensible and more accessible. Their website offers an extensive database, useful information and interesting resources about residencies worldwide. TransArtists is part of DutchCulture – Center for International Cooperation.
