The WOC Online Residency Program helps the international artist community to stay connected and be creative. The program is designed for artists at any stage of their career to link with international creatives from different corners of the planet and to expand their practice through feedback and mutual support. The participants are able to work on specific projects, to improve their portfolios, and move on when you feel stuck and need help. Through active dialogue, exchanging ideas, and critical thinking, the program builds a strong sense of community and artistic collaboration among its participants which lasts after the program ends. In a friendly and supportive atmosphere, WOC helps artists to continue growing, experimenting, and improving themselves as artists.


WOC Online Artist Residency is hosted by the independent art organization World of Co. Since 2017, World of Co has organized artist residency programs in Sofia, Bulgaria, introducing Bulgarian art and culture to the international artist community, and also presenting foreign artists to the local scene.
