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)
