Application deadline: September 30, 2018
In co-operation with KulturKontakt Austria, the Austrian Federal Chancellery makes available 50 residencies in Austria (Vienna and Salzburg) for the year 2019. Foreign artists can apply for this grant programme electronically via the www.artists-inresidence-austria.at platform.
The residency is designed to offer an opportunity to familiarise oneself with the Austrian art scene and cultural environment and to make contact with Austrian artists. Residents are expected to complete a project during their stay. In the field of cultural education, the stay is primarily designed to foster exchanges and networking and not the realisation of a project.
During their stay, the artists in residence will be made familiar with the art scene and cultural environment. Activities on offer include visits at galleries, studios and museums, contacts to the literature and publishing sector, as well as access to Vienna’s music life. Whenever possible, the residents will receive free tickets for art and book fairs, the international ImPuls Tanz dance festival and other events. Applications can be submitted as of now until no later than September 30, 2018, 24.00, upon registration at www.artists-in-residence-austria.at. The electronic timestamp will be used to determine whether the submission was within the deadline (Central European Summer Time – CEST).
