Artists and cultural professions often built their career networks, in which they share ideas, experiences, and engaging.

The program is initiated by a couple of artists in Berlin who share the liberal and spontaneous spirit. They are rooted in the local art world, have diverse orientations, but personally connected to each other, create new concepts together and explore the capability of art in social engagement. One day, they ask themselves: why not share their connection, experiences, and knowledge about how to perform art in Berlin?

The idea is simple: they will manage the living and working spaces for visiting artists; advise them how to get their ideas realized in Berlin; connect them to other artists, curators, or gallerists who might be interested in their projects. If the concepts could meet up together, the visiting artists will also be invited to join in their ongoing projects, exhibitions or other cultural initiations.

Different from traditional artist residence, the program is interactive and flexible, less bureaucracy and paperwork. It is an "artist to artist" system.

The visiting artist will pay a negotiable cost to the host artist. At the same time, every visiting artist could also host other artists. The program is not commercial. Because the artists are often in irregular financial status, the program intends to build a visiting and hosting artists' community all over the world, providing a way for the artists to balance the financial status, sharing local recourse and connection, and practicing art together.
