The main aim of the project is to support the creative development of artists in other than their home environment, where they will be able to fully concentrate on their creations and collect creative impulses from a new place. One of the other goals is the creative confrontation of the local art scene with the art scene of the resident and vice versa, which will lead to new collaborations and new creative impulses. NEIRO believes that space, time and creative impulses arising from the clash of different approaches, cultures, environments and disciplines are essential for the development of artistic creation with social outreach.
