Tinos Quarry Platform

Short term residencies in isolated and preserved village on Tinos island in Greece are free of charge.

Tinos Quarry Platform provides housing and studio facilities with the particular aim of supporting process and experimentation. Residencies last for a month, an allotment which is determined at the time of acceptance between residents and the project’s staff.

 The shapes of residencies are largely determined by the residents themselves. The residency grounds are peaceful and private.

This residential project is open to artists of all ages from various art disciplines. The residency programme works with invited artists. It takes place in the period from May to July.

At the end of the period, the annual group exhibition with the participants artists is organized. The exhibition takes place  in the building of the Cultural Foundation of Tinos at the capital city of the island.


Sculpture, Painting, Drawing, Collage, Research, Writing, Performance, Community-driven work, Land-based, Ephemeral


Tinos Quarry Platform is situated in the village of Isternia at the southwest side of Tinos island. This mountainous village is located three hundred meters above the sea.

The facilities of Tinos Quarry Platform are well suited for sculpture, painting, drawing, collage, research, writing, performance, and work that is community-driven, land-based, or ephemeral. More information is available upon request.

Tinos Quarry Platform invites artists to work in this serene environment and encourages the interaction with the local community and culture. The openness of the rocky mountainous landscape with the sea below, contributes to an intense focus on individual practice.

Residents are housed in a single bedroom each of a large house which is settled on the slop of the mountain facing a stunning view to the Aegean Archipelago. They are provided with a kitchen set-up and bedrooms. The project provides basic internet and all other standard utilities (water, electricity, linen). More information is available on request.

Each resident is given a shared studio in a historical building formerly occupied as a public school in the village of Isternia, which is a walking distance from the residents housing.
