Terms & Conditions: After registration a Dacia representative will email you an agreement with terms and conditions and an emergency contact form that you have to fill out and send back to us for administrative purposes. 
Bring a Friend: Artists have been asking if they can attend the residency with another artist friend. Yes you may. If you and another artist would like to attend and share housing, you both have to apply separately and then let us know that you will be rooming together and we will make the arrangements for you. This will be an exciting adventure and fun to share with a friend or a spouse. Many of the artists that attended our previous the residencies in Romania brought an artist friend with them. Please let us know if you want to do the same.
