Akrai is an international multidisciplinary arts residency program on the island of Sicily, with a strong emphasis on interaction with the local community and collaboration among peers. 

Akrai's mission is to nurture the arts by offering creative individuals an opportunity to develop new work in a stimulating environment. 

Akrai seeks to offer a platform for a better understanding of the rich and complex heritage of Sicily—with its layers of history and tradition and multifaceted contemporary issues—by facilitating a cultural exchange between the local community and artists from across the world. 

At the local level, Akrai aims to forge new connections between the surrounding community and the contemporary arts, encouraging community members to become active participants in the cultural dialogue.
