NOMAD Educational program

They have the opportunity to travel through and work in the artistic environment of Skopje, Sofia, Belgrade, Zagreb, Sarajevo and Ljubljana, creating a network for future artistic collaboration.

Research programme of NDA

Research programme of NDA is aimed at artistic explorations and collaborations, which are process-based and not necessarily product-oriented. Artists get the opportunity to realize a residency, initiate a new project or start a debate on any topic, and the only condition is that every research is documented by a narrative and/or visual report of the process.

Projects and initiatives that eventually derive from Researches would be further supported by NDA in accordance with its mission and vision, but this is not the primary goal.
