FDV Residency Program is a residency programme for the creative industry born at Fabbrica del Vapore which promotes international exchanges and mobility. Careof invites artists from all over the world and offers them a chance to professionally grow and establish a connection with the area. Our guests can use the archive for their own research, set up an exhibition and widen their contacts in the field.

The project was born as a collaboration with Milan City Council and Fdvlab
