Thematic Programmes

Since 2014, Delfina Foundation has run seasonal thematic programmes, which guide our residencies and public programmes – consisting of exhibitions and events, including talks, workshops, and performances.

Our thematic programmes provide a space for salient issues and ideas to be explored, and bring together artists, arts professionals and experts across civic society to engage and collaborate.

Several of our themes are recurrent, allowing for a focus on different areas within a theme, and/or to develop on previous iterations.
