The Villa Arson is a unique organization whose brief is to develop, in tandem, activities involving training, creative work and introduction of artists into the contemporary visual arts field. It is therefore an art school, an art centre and an artists’ residence, all at once otherwise put, an essentially hybrid and multi-facetted institution.
