The Jalari Artist Residency (JAR) is the first Artists’ Residence to open on the island of Sicily in the south of Italy. It is located in a historical park on a hilltop outside of Barcellona P.G. (ME). It provides international and national artists of all disciplines with an inspiring art retreat allowing them to focus and create, away from the stress and distractions of urban living.
Enjoying a privileged position at the Parco Museo Jalari, JAR makes for an idyllic country escape. During your Artist Residency you will be able to concentrate fully on your creative work. You will also have the chance to discover the real tradiation and unspoiled Italy, off the beaten touristic path. Because as Goethe wrote; To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily, is to not have seen Italy at all.
JAR’s core value is Art: the whole park breathes art and IS art. JAR is committed to promoting the interaction of its Resident Artists with the local community. If you are looking for an elegant creative retreat that will include good Italian food, closeness to nature and Italy’s artistic and historical heritage, than Jalari Artist Residency is the place for you!
