K2 Recidency programe is an experimental one which can not offer any educational facilities to the
applicants. 25 squaremeters artists studios are accesible from 7.30 am to 11 pm. There are 16 artist
studios are already in use by the local artists and 2 Studios offered to international guest artists.
Unfortunately we are not able to provide hi-tech facilities for the artists but in special cases we can
also search for these necessary equipments by the sponsorship before their arrival.
Artists can show their works/projects -that produced during their residency period- at the K2 gallery, avaliable places in the building or in the city. K2 can also arrange meeting with the art professionals especially from Istanbul. Artists can give talk in K2 as well as Platform Garanti CAC (or Apartment Project, Pist) in istanbul.
