second edition of its *Artists' Development program* (ADP), both a
mentoring programme and an artist's residency,* targeting visual artists

days visiting the mentor and experiencing the latter's creative studio(s)
in Warsaw. The duration of the residency in Luxembourg is four to six
weeks, starting on 1 September. The artist participating in the ADP will be
provided a living/working space located in Centre Culturel de Rencontre
