Sarah Duncan & The Lumen Residency

Many congratulations to Sarah Duncan for being accepted on this fantastic residency in Atina, Italy this coming September.

Lumen are an art collective who explore themes of astronomy and light, and have regularly exhibited in major churches around London. They aim to inspire a dialogue about how humanity understands existence.

This two-week residency is set up to help like-minded artists from multi-disciplines develop their practice in a relaxed, yet productive environment. The peaceful village of Atina, situated 154km from Rome in the province of Frosinone-Lazio, benefits from natural darkness, natural beauty and is a great spot for viewing the Moon, stars and meteor showers.

Staying on site, artists will have the opportunity to create works responding to the variety of astronomical sights found there, to be showcased in exhibitions in Atina and London. Large studio space, observatory trips, telescope access, small local bars/restaurants, film screenings.
