Biennial artist in residency, registered as non-profit cultural association, operating in Guilmi (Abruzzo, Italy) since 2007.

Lately GAP has extended the production of artists’ projects beyond the residence time-space-frame. Other professionals hold side activities: parties, experiential workshops, walks, collective meals. In 2013 GAP launches the Nuova Didattica Popolare: night classes in a public square on contemporary issues, analysed throughout the lens of contemporary art. Editions 2013-2017 are conceived and held by art curator, critic and educator Pietro Gaglianò. Self-financed and promoted, plus technical and professionals sponsorships
