About TAZ

TAZ is an international art residency program run by culture centre Malý Berlín in Trnava, Slovakia. It offers various residential opportunities, both within the cultural center and outside of it in cooperation with institutional partners. We aim to provide accommodation, workspace and full technical and production support.

The start of the program was originally planned for 2020 but we postponed it due to the covid pandemic for a year and began with Slovak artists. In the meantime, we focused on short-term residences, especially in performing arts. The year 2022 with the first international open call is an important step for TAZ.

Malý Berlín (Little Berlin) is an independent cultural centre located in the historic centre of Trnava – an industrial and university city 50 km from Bratislava. Each year more than 300 events take place in the centre’s two venues. Program is aimed at all age groups and participants in theatre and dance performances, concerts, film screenings, literary evenings, conferences, discussions and educational events.

Malý Berlín is a member of pan-European network of cultural and creative canters Trans Europe Halles.
