MODEM hosted the 10th regional meeting and conference of Res Artis, the worldwide network of residential arts centres in Debrecen between the 23rd and 26th of May 2011.

The speakers and participants arrived from all over the world, from Europe as well as from overseas, from 22 countries (AT, AU, BE, BG, CH, CS, CZ, DE, EE, ES, FI, FR, HU, IL, NL, NO, PL, RO, RU, SE, SK, UK).
Res Artis is The International Association of Residential Arts Centres, a foundation based in the Netherlands. Its membership is made up of art centres and artist's organisations that encourage the cultural exchange, the mobility of artists and cultural professionals and by that the development of contemporary art and artists through residential artist exchange programs.
Res Artis began in 1993 as a volunteer organisation to represent and support the needs of residential art centres and programs internationally through dynamic exchanges and face-to-face meetings. Within a decade it has grown to provide a world-wide critical forum for residency programs, convening meetings and conferences internationally where the exchange of ideas and creative models test cultural assumptions and broaden the world-view of its participants. Globally, it is the largest existing network of artist residency programs with over 300 members drawn from more than 40 countries and all continents. Its membership operates artist exchange programs in a diverse number of international and regional communities that range from formal, well-funded government organisations via enthusiastic private engagements to grassroots artists run initiatives.
