The NAHR is set the Taleggio Valley in the Orobie Alps of northern Italy. An international jury will select the residents based on their proposals. Selection criteria will include feasibility, originality, and overall quality of the proposals. Each NAHR residency is supplied without fees; lodging is provided (June).

Residencies will be awarded according to independent project proposals that best explore the 2018 topic Water: vital flux, energy in transformation. Candidates are asked to consider how their proposals might best explore how to build dynamic relationships and articulations between the Valley’s ecological resources, socio-cultural practices, and the built environment.
