What to follow in the world of slovakian art practice
Here you will find resources from where you can regularly get information about exhibitions, open calls, workshops, residencies, competitions and the like.
At the beginning of Your study, this information will help you get a better sense of what is happening in the art scene, what opportunities, when, and how often appear, and what is usually required from the applicants.
It is also advisable to start monitoring these resources more intensively e.g. one year or six months prior to the time when you would like to engage in something external - publicly present your work, apply for an internship or a residency, etc.
