The Siena Art Institute Onlus is a small non-profit arts organization based in the heart of Siena, Italy, one of the oldest and most beautiful university towns in Italy. We welcome artists from all disciplines who are interested in the intersection of art and civic life, and who wish to explore how the theoretical content of our individual practices can be translated into socially meaningful projects that produce a deeper understanding of the cultures in which we find ourselves.
We organize Project Fellowships, and residencies for professional artists and writers through our Visiting Artist Program (see Summer Residencies, Studio / Casa Residencies, Studio Residencies for more information). We organize public arts programming such as conferences and workshops together with collaborative partners, for local and international audiences, including our City Arts Programs and our ongoing series of presentations " StARTers: assaggi d'Arte ." We offer a unique study program for international Undergraduate and Post-Baccalaureate art & writing students, as well as Intensive Summer & Winter Courses.
