*A deposit warranty payment will be required before arrival (150€). Once the artist has finished her/his AIR Programme deposit will be reimburse in case that materials, resources, atelier and common appliances have been appropiately used and not dammaged.

*AirGentum strongly recommends arstists to get both travel and medical insurances before starting their trip. For Non European Citizens these may be mandatory.

*Airgentum has a list of local artist collaborators and will offer you/the AIR group their availability in order to chose the best option for both parts.

* An exhibition/show/conference/colaboration may take place during the last week of your AIR stay: this is not mandatory and it may be not possible depending on many reasons (anticipation of artist application, special seasons like Semana Santa, Feria, San Benito Pilgrimage, Carnival, etc.). Artist covers materials/work production. Airgentum  markets the event, set up the exhibition, sends press communicates advertising it through social media. As sooner we get your application confirmation the better to get in touch with galleries/art spaces in order to organize it!
