The Visegrad Artist Residency Program was cre­ated in 2006 for the pur­poses of facil­i­tat­ing art mobil­ity and exchange for cit­i­zens of the Visegrad Group (V4: the Czech Republic, the Republic of Hungary, the Republic of Poland, and the Slovak Republic) coun­tries. Starting as a gen­eral artist-in-residence exchange, the pro­gram grew into three sep­a­rate subprograms:

VARP—Visual&Sound Arts (indi­vid­ual mobil­ity within the V4 region)
VARP—Performing Arts (indi­vid­ual and group mobil­ity pro­gram focused on scenic arts) and
VARP in New York (indi­vid­ual artist-in-residence pro­gram in Brooklyn, NY)
Visegrad Literary Residency Program (indi­vid­ual res­i­den­cies within the V4 region)
